My Doll Detectives’ Slimline Box Card

My Doll Detectives’ Slimline Box Card

Zoinks! Hello Crafty Friends! It’s Laurie here! I am sharing My Doll Detectives’ Slimline Box Card using Doll Detectives by Paper Nest Dolls for my Design Team Inspiration Card. This bundle comes with 6 digital stamps including 2 boys, 2 girls, a dog, and a van.

The Details of My Card

I had so much fun colouring these cuties with my Copic markers that I made another card with them, but a slimline box card instead! I will add a link to the other card I made at the end of this post.

For my card, I thought a torture scene would be perfect for them using Enchanted Kingdom and Enchanted Forest Slimline Paper by Whimsy Stamps. This paper makes creating scenes so easy because it’s so detailed. Since the paper is so amazing, I decided to use the whole sheet, even though my card would be larger than a usual slimline.

To create my scene, I decided to a box card would be fun allowing for 3 different layers on the front and another one for the back of the card. For each layer, I sponged a stencil to create the cobbled floor and road.

For my sentiments, I thought speech bubbles with their iconic sayings would be such fun! So, I created them in Microsoft Word and used my Brother Scan & Cut to cut them out. For Jinkies and Jeepers, I wanted them to hover above the girls’ heads. Hence, I used a thin strip of window sheet for each and glued them to the layer behind them. I will include a link to a PDF of the sentiments that I created that you could download at the end.

The only embellishment that I added was the cute magnifying glass beside the main sentiment. Tip: use Glossy Accents to glue it to the card. I found it worked the best.
