Fun In The Sun Shadow Box!


Hi everyone,

Before I get into my card for today …. Happy Mother’s Day for all those Mothers out there, I hope you have a fantastic day!

At the beginning of the MFTeasers I posted a sneak peek of the new Die-namics dies that MFT Stamps has just recently released. One of these was the MFT Die-namics Jumbo Scallops Die and I showed you on my post that the piece left over after you cut out the scallop die looked like waves when you put a few together. At the time I only had a sample of the waves … as I hadn’t had time to create a card using the waves.

Well I have finally managed to get a card made using the waves I had created back then …. I created a shadow box card. I added the waves using MFT Die-namics Jumbo Scallops Die to both the outside of my shadow box and the inside.

The stamp set used here is one of MFT Stamps new Pure Innocence sets called “Beach Bum”. I paper pieced her bathing suit using green polka dot designer paper.


The clouds are also one of the new MFT Stamps dies - MFT Die-namics Clouds …. for my card I die cut the cloud die using clear acetate. My acetate is thinner than normal card, so for a clean cut I suggest adding a shim to the sandwich. After I had diecut the clouds I sponge white ink using stazon white.


Here is a close up of the waves and also the Pure Innocence ‘Bum Beach” girl.
