BPM/IBFS: A Haunted House Shadow Box Card with Sliding Doors

Hey there, friends!

Thanks for coming back to Paper Play.  Today’s post is very fun and trendy.  Diorama, or a shadow box with sliding doors, cards are pretty popular right now.  There’s been some new die sets released to help you create one.  The only issue with those die sets is that they limit you to a standard A2 sized card - and sometimes you may want one larger than that.  We crafters also have limited budgets and can’t always buy everything that we’d like to buy.  I spent some time creating and came up with my own way of creating one, which is what today’s post is all about.

Halloween is the perfect time for sliding door and shadow box cards.  What kind of spooky surprise is lurking behind the doors?  In today’s creation it happens to be a haunted house:


I used the following items to make this spooky, fun card:

  • BPM Haunted House Halloween Rubber Stamp
  • BPM Caution Word Art Rubber Stamp
  • Altenew Wrought Iron Gate Die Set
  • Altenew Deck Planks 3D Embossing Folder
  • Scrappy Boy I Put a Spell on You Stencil
  • Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain - Stormy Sky
  • Tim Holtz Distress Mica Spray: Winter Frost, Iron Gate, and Wicked Elixir
  • A,tenew Ruby Red Crisp Dye Ink
  • 1 5”x7” piece of black card stock (front panel)
  • 1 6”x7” piece of black card stock (frame behind panel)
  • 2 4.75”x11” pieces of black card stock (sliding doors & sides)
  • 2 4.75”x3.5” pieces of white card stock (create scene on doors)
  • 1 5”x6” piece of black card stock (back panel)
  • 1 5”x7” piece of black card stock for cutting out the iron gates
  • Piece of white scrap card stock to stamp house and create wooden sign
This card was so much fun to make!  Click here to see a tutorial on my YouTube channel on how it all came together.  You can also click here to see a (much!) quicker card promo.

There are lots of great details in this card - the haunted house, iron gates, brick walls, caution sign, and ghoulish hand coming up from behind the wall.  So festive!




I hope that you enjoyed the learning more about the card and my creative process.  Thanks for spending some time here with me today!  Until next time . . . be well!
