Boho Indigo DSP Series - Forever Fern Shadow Box Book Card

Forever Fern Boho Indigo Shadow Box Book Card

We're past the halfway point with my Boho Indigo DSP Series! 

I hope you are enjoying the series so far? If you are visiting my blog for the first time, I'm demonstrating how versatile the Boho Indigo Product Medley is and just how much you can create with one pack. I've created nine papercraft and home decor projects and I still have product left over! 

There are four more projects still to come! A pencil tin, thank you card, a wreath and a stationery set. I've had so much fun creating all of them but I am super excited about the last two!! They were both a real labour of love and I am so happy with the end result. I can't wait to show them to you!

Boho Indigo Papercraft Series

Here is project number five! I have created another Shadow Box Book Card. This is completely different in design to my Peony Garden version but I've used exactly the same structure, I just haven't added the note card and I've utilised the concertina sides to decorate the frame.

I love how this 3D card looks like a book when closed. It's so effective and a fun technique to use!

You can purchase my 1 hour long video tutorial to learn exactly how to make this card structure (scroll to the very end of this post and click on the banner for more details). 

In my video tutorial, I show you how I decorated the Shadow Box Book Card with the Peony Garden Suite but you can decorate it any way you like! Once you know the structure, the possibilities are endless! 

This version of the Shadow Box Book Card would look absolutely stunning using multiple colours, especially when stamping with the Forever Fern stamps. You could use soft subtle colours or bright vibrant colours - whatever your style!

I was determined to make all of the papercraft projects within the Boho Indigo Series monotone designs, using just Very Vanilla and Misty Moonlight - adding a few embellishments here and there. So today's version is simply stamped in Misty Moonlight onto Very Vanilla cardstock.

I die cut the Forever Fern stamps with the Forever Flourishing dies and attached them at different depths, using glue dots, to the inside of the concertina frame. It creates dimension, a kind of jungle effect!

I created a matching gift box to fit the shadow box book card too. In my video tutorial, I also show you how to make this!  

I haven't added any decoration other than the DSP and Cardstock as I want the card to be the main attraction. 

Of course you don't need a gift box but hey, makers are gonna make!

Stampin' Up! Bonus Days Promotion

Did you know that these offers apply to demonstrators too? 

I got my Bonus Days vouchers yesterday and I am looking forward to placing an order in August to stock up on adhesives and cardstock, ready for making Christmas cards!

Christmas crafting is my all time favourite. I can't wait for my new stamp sets, dies, patterned paper and ribbon to arrive. 

As demonstrators, we can order products one month earlier than customers. I'm a bit late to the party as I only ordered yesterday - I just simply couldn't decide what to order as my wish list was huge (unfortunately I can't buy it all). 

Here's a sneak peak of the front cover of the
New Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue launching 4th August 2020!!


I'm sorry there is nothing here for you to download 
(it's against the rules - right now I can only show you the front cover)
Come back on 4th August and download the PDF catalogue!

Okay, so you may be thinking, isn't it a bit too early to think about Christmas crafting? 

Fast forward to December when you're frantically creating Christmas cards to make the last posting dates - is that you? Well, it was me last year and this year I'm going to get ahead and make some each month so I can actually enjoy the run up to Christmas!
