Hello there! I'm back with the MFT Techniques & Tutorial feature, where the design team shares cards accompanied by detailed instructions and step-by-step photos using the products from the newest release.

I have a simple A2 sized (when folded flat) interactive shadow box-card to share with you today, and it features the Friendships Rocks stamp set along with the Take the Stage Die-namics.

To make the box, trim Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock to 8 3/4" x 5 1/2". Then, scores lines at 3 3/4", 4 1/4", 8 1/2", 8 3/4".  Fold at the lines. After, die-cut the front of the box with a die that measures approximately 4 3/4" X 3 1/2" from the A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1 to create the opening. Add 1/4" Scor-tape to the 1/4" folded tab.

Create a tab to insert into the box so you can attach the girl with an invisible string. Attach the string going up her back to the top of the tab. Attach the string to the tab with regular tape. This allows the girl to sway back and forth if you move the box card. To make the tab, trim Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock to 1/4" x 4 1/4" and score lines at 1/4" and 4". Add Scor-tape to the folded ends.

To make the stage curtains, use the dies from Take the Stage Die-namics and die-cut the Tropical Teal Prestige cardstock. From the same set, use the wavy die to die-cut Heavyweight Blu Raspberry Cardstock for the back of the stage curtains, making it a little shorter than the stage.

To make the stars for the back of the stage curtain, die-cut Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the star dies from Friendship Rocks Die-namics. Glue them on to the die-cut Blu Raspberry Card Stock. 

Apply a Powder Tool Applicator on Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock. Stamp the sentiment from Friendship rocks with Versmark Ink and heat emboss it white. Then, die-cut it with a die from Hearts in a Row - Vertical Die-namics.

To finish, glue the Blu Raspberry curtain to the back of the box. Then, add the insert with the girl and adhere the box close. To finish, adhere the curtains to the front of the box ( I used 1/8" and 1/4" Scor-tapes) and the die-cut sentiment.

That's it; I hope you found my tutorial helpful! :)
