Now, onto Challenge #4! This month’s theme is one of my personal favourites: interactive! Don’t forget to link your projects featuring Penguin Palace stamps below for your chance to win a $25 gift card!
I LOVE interactive cards, and Penguin Palace has so many awesome interactive dies that make creating interactive projects even easier! For today’s card I decided to use the Cinematic Shadow Box – Stand-Alone Die. I started by cutting each of the pieces out of kraft cardstock.
To create the pyramids in the background I used the pyramid die from the Desert Landscape Scene Builder – Dies & Stencil Set on the background panel. I used the stencil from this set and some Distress Oxide inks (Antique Linen & Brushed Corduroy) to add some dimension to the pyramids. I also used the hillside die from the same set on another piece of kraft cardstock and glued it to the background panel to add some extra stability. While I had my inks out, I added Antique Linen to the side panels and sentiment strip so they would coordinate with the pyramids.
Next, I stamped out almost all of the images from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set and coloured them in using Copic markers. Once they were colored, I die cut them using the coordinating dies. I also paired up the sentiments from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set which fit perfectly across the sentiment strip.
Finally, I assembled all the pieces from the Cinematic Shadow Box (there’s a great video showing how to assemble it here) and added the stamped images to create a little scene–having 4 levels creates so much dimension!
We always love to see your creations and would love for you to join us in challenge #4! All you have to do to enter is use the challenge theme to create a project that features at least one Penguin Palace product as the focal point. Full challenge rules can be found here.
