Club Anya Blog Hop!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you're enjoying the first Club Anya "Blog Hoppin' Bash!"

Today I'd like to share a 3-D shadow box card using Anya from the Rock the Farm set:


You can see I used a few other sets too: the chicken and mouse are from the McSplendid Farm set, and the little birds nesting in the rafters are from the Wishing Tree set. Anya was done in multiple layers for dimension and interest and colored with Copics, as were all the animals.

The barn is completely my own design and I put a lot of work into it! Every "board" on the barn is a separate piece of cardstock that I distressed by running my scissors over the edges, scratching up the surface with a stylus, and dry brushing different inks for the look of weathered wood.

When you open up the barn door, you can see all the animals inside!


These animals are also from the McSplendid set, as is the sentiment (which is supposed to be a wood sign nailed to the wall). All the animals are on their own piece of cardstock so that they're at different depths in the card. They all have multiple layers for a lot of dimension.

Because there's no place inside the card to write a message, I decorated the back for that purpose:


Here you can see how the card flattens for mailing (please excuse the clothes pin):


Last, but not least, some more shots of the dimension of all the different pieces:


I hope you like my card and enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop!
