Hello Friends! Hope you’re having a fabulous day! Thanks for joining me today for this 3D card featuring the new 3D Card Die from the latest Rainbows release from Simon Says Stamp! These cards are just too dang cute! I’ve had so much fun making 3D cards using this die! So let’s take a look at the card!
To begin this project, I die cut two sheets of patterned paper from the PinkFresh Studio Celebrate Collection using this new 3D Card Die from Simon Says Stamp. These two cut papers will make the box base for your card. You will also need to cut a piece of cardstock to 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″. This piece will be the decorated piece that stands up from your box. I chose to use Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock for the cardstock piece. Once this was cut, I used PinkFresh Studio Sky Blue and Fresh Pear inks to apply some light ink blending over the panel. I then added some white splatter using Royal Talens Amsterdam Titanium White Acrylic Ink.
I used the SSS Spring Flowers Stamp set to stamp elements from the set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed those using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I used Copic Markers RV00, RV10, RV11, RV32, RV34, YG11, YG13, YG17, Y08, Y11, and Y15 to color the flowers and leaves. Once those were colored, I used the coordinating Floral Shapes Die to cut those out.
To assemble the 3D Card, you first need to fold the paper along all of the score lines that the die creates for you. See additional pics below for detailed assembly. You’ll then place 1/8″ Scor-Tape on the four small tabs (two on each panel) and also the smallest fold on the bottom of both panels. The Scor-Tape will be adhered to what will be the outside of your box. Pull the release tape on the bottom of one panel and fold it up so that you can line up the cardstock panel along the bottom edge and nestle it between the two notches. Remove the release tape on the other panel and line up the bottom edge of the panels securing the panel between them. You’ll then remove the release tape on the four tabs and fold those over to adhere them together. For a great detailed video on the card assembly, you can also check out this video from Simon Says Stamp.
I adhered the larger pink flower and leaf to the decorated panel using Craft Tacky Glue. I then cut three thin strips of acetate, trimmed them down and folded them into an “L” shape. I adhered the other flowers to the top of the acetate using the same Scor-Tape and adhered the bottom the top of the “box” as shown. I really loved using the acetate because it took the idea of a 3D to a next level!
I chose the SSS Happy Everything sentiment for this card and die cut the outline portion three times from black cardstock and glued those together. I then glued the “happy” to the top of the decorated panel and the “everything” to the front of the 3D card.
That finishes this project for today! Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope this card inspires you to get crafty in your space!
