I just love how this scarecrow shadow box card turned out and it’s so much easier to create using the new A2 Shadow Box Frame Die from Rubbernecker. No more scoring and cutting and snipping and tweaking and adjusting…..one spin through my die cutting machine and the whole shadow box frame was DONE! I created the scene using the Scarecrow, Cornstalks, Apples, Pears and Corn, Pumpkins and Ivy, Grass, Grass #2 and Birds.
The Scarecrow Shadow Box Frame and Scene Background
- Cut the shadow box frame using white cardstock.
- Cut the 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ scene base using white cardstock.
- Apply the cloudy sky background using Beachside ink, cloud stencil and a blender brush.
- Use the Scor-Pal to add deeper score lines on the frame.
- Fold the frame sides in and use the bone folder to crisp up the crease on each fold.
- Apply 1/4″ double stick tape on the inside of the wide frame fold layers.
- Turn the frame face down, and insert the scene base face down in the frame.
- Remove the tape on both frame flaps, fold and secure the frame flaps closed.
- Turn the frame face up and push down on the scene layer and secure it in place to the taped frame flaps.
- Apply 1/4″ double stick to the back of the frame and attach it to the aqua A2 sized card base.
- Be sure and check out my video showing how to fold and secure the shadow box frame.
- Cut the scarecrow using multiple colors of cardstock.
- Assemble the pieces and attach them together using glossy accents.
- Cut the crow using black cardstock and attach it to the arms of the scarecrow using glossy accents.
- Apply glossy accents to the back of the scarecrow and attach him to the stake.
The Pumpkins, Corn and Cornstalks and Crows
- Cut several pumpkins using yellow cardstock.
- Color the stems using green ink and a mini applicator.
- Apply orange ink to the pumpkins using mini applicators.
- Cut several sections of cornstalks using green cardstock .
- Hand cut small yellow slivers of cardstock and attach to the back of each cornstalk using glossy accents.
- Cut birds using black cardstock.
- Use yellow and green cardstock to cut the corn and husks and attach them together using glossy accents.
Assemble the Scarecrow Shadow Box Scene
- Cut several grass sections and grass sprigs using green cardstock.
- Cut the grass sections to fit inside the shadow box frame and one to fit across the front of the frame.
- Apply double layers mounting tape to the back of the three inside grass sections and layer and attach them inside the frame.
- Apply a strip of mounting tape to the front grass layer and attach it to the frame.
- Secure the scarecrow in place behind the front grass layer by attaching three layers of mounting tape to his back and one piece to his arm and attach in the scene.
- Attach several ears of corn to the back of the grass layer using glossy accents.
- Gently form the pumpkins with your fringes, apply pieces of mounting tape to the back and attach them in behind the grass layer.
- Finish the scene by attaching the crows to the frame and back scene layer using small pieces of mounting tape.
I would for you to check out the Scarecrow Z Fold Card made using these same die cuts.
Here are the product links used for this card.
I had so much fun making this scarecrow shadow box card with all the fall die cuts from Rubbernecker. I have lots of ideas in my head for using this time saving Shadow Box Frame die. What kinds of cards are you looking forward to making using it? The possibilities are endless.
