Welcome to a very special Cutting Cafe Inspiration! In April we're collaborating with Joy Clair Stamps and using some of their fabulous stamp sets along with our favorite Cutting Cafe files! One of my very favorite fairly new files is the 3-D Shadow Card and I knew this Wild and Free stamp set from Joy Clair would be perfect to use along with it!
I love this 3-D card because it appears like a plain old flat card from the outside and then when you open it the shadow box "pops" up to reveal whatever 3D creation you want to add to the inside!
I used all of the images from the set along with some of the dies in my stash to create this cute scene... and even cuter if you wiggle the front open and closed a little it looks like they're actually moving!...lol! Just a pleasant surprise that I didn't expect! This would be a fantastic set to decorate a travel journal don't you think? But this card would be for someone setting out on an adventure! Or just for fun... 'cause these two are SO cute! And the set contains lots of great sentiments too.
That's a lot of layers! I did add some twine to mine because I used quite a bit of popup tape, but it still lies pretty flat and would be easy to mail.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the Cutting Cafe Blog on the 21st. Comment there for your chance to win three files of your choice!
