JAI 640 Just add a surprise - Sea turtle shadow box card

Sea Turtle themed shadow box fancy fold card using Stampin Up Sea Turtle, Paradise Palms and Whale Done stamp sets and Layering Diorama dies. Card Bt Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - colourmehappy - shadow box card - tutorial

Hello and welcome! Today I'm sharing my team project for Just Add Ink just add a surprise challenge. Fun! What's my surprise? I made a shadow box card - a fancy fold card with a 3d shadow box surprise when the card is opened. I've made lots of these over the years and shared a pdf tutorial previously. I'll link it below.

The stars of this card are beautiful turtles from the Sea Turtle stamp set - new in the January-April Mini Catalogue. I've mixed bits and pieces from other stamp sets and dies too. Here's how it turned out.

Mystery Card Challenge 1 - 5 simple cards (CMH1)

Hello and welcome! Today I have something new to share with you - a mystery card challenge.

This started as a challenge for a SU Demonstrator group I help to admin. It was so fun to do and reminded me how much can be done with just some simple pieces and limited supplies.

Anyone can play along with the challenge, whether you're new to cardmaking or completely obsessed. I'm going to set a new mystery challenge each month starting from 1 March.

In the meantime, try challenge one to get you started. Read on for all the info you'll need and to see all the cards I made.
