Shadow Box Card



How cute are these shadow box cards? One uses the set "Wild about you" and the other uses the "Both Way Blossoms" and the words from "Brighter Tomorrow". I added some googly eyes to the little critters for some added fun. Really fun to make!

Here's how to make a Shadow Box card.
1. Cut 2 pieces of cardstock to 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 (same as a quarter piece of cardstock). Score the short end at 1/2" and 1".
2. Cut out oval (circle or square) using the Coluzzle cutting system, on the piece of paper that will be the front of your card. (If you have an oversized punch that would work too.)
3. Stamp image for the inside of the card on the other piece of paper making sure that the image will be seen through the oval. You may want to place the piece of paper that has the oval over the other one and stamp through the open oval to ensure the image is placed right. Finish image with embellishments.
4. Fold outer edges of both pieces along score lines so they will match to create the shadow box. Place sticky strip or strong adhesive on outer 1/2" and put together. Complete outside of the shadow box. This card can lay flat and be put into an envelope.
