Camping Shadow Box Father's Day Gift Idea

Camping Shadow Box Father's Day Gift Idea

Hello 12X12 Cardstock Shop Fans! I am back with my monthly collaboration with Dreaming Tree. I know Mother’s Day is just around the bend but wanted to bring you something that you would have plenty of time to make for dad on Father’s Day.

camping themed shadow box made of paper

This month I made the Camping Paper Sculpture from Dreaming Tree. This was so fun to make and amazing to watch come together. 

When making layered cardstock crafts like this camping shadow box, the hardest part can be picking out the papers. Did you know that Leo, the owner of Dreaming Tree makes a complete supply list of everything he uses for the project for you? And they use Encore cardstock or American Crafts cardstock for their supply lists, so you can get everything you need right here at 12x12 Cardstock Shop. 

When you go to Dreaming Tree’s page, go to the picture of the item you are wanting to make and click on it. It will take you to the video on how to put it together. Scroll right past that and there will be tabs called Assembly, Trailer, Compatibility, Dimensions and Supply List. Click on the Supply list tab and there you have it!

Supplies I used for this camping shadow box sculpture:

American Crafts Cardstock in Peacock, SapphireTangerine, Ash, Black, Straw, Vanilla, Wheatgrass (discontinued but AC Grass or Encore Parsley are good substitutes), Apricot, Butterscotch, Crimson, Powder, Stone.

In addition I used tiny rhinestones from my stash for the stars and Nuvo Drops for the snow caps. 

Thanks for joining me and I will see you next month!

    Hello, I love this card! Can you send me a list of the dies you used? Which company the dies are from? I would like to make the card but will need the dies to do so. Thank you!

    It is Gorgeous. Love the design by Dreaming Tree and the colors you used. Great idea for Father’s Day. I also love 12 × 12 Cardstock.
