Shadow Box

Yes, I am still living. Life just got way too busy and something had to give. Things are still busy but I have a stamp night coming up and a day I got to actually stay home (until soccer) so I decided I should actually make one of the cards that I sketched out while I was sitting a play practice. Our Home Educators graduation/program is next week, we finish school tomorrow, Soccer ends next week so life may just slow down a bit. It has been so long, I almost forgot how to blog (or stamp). I've lost my rhythm.... Well anyway...back to my card.

One of my customers requested we do a shadow box card. So this is the one I made up for that night. I cut 2 pieces of card stock 4.25" x 5.5" I scored each edges at .5" and 1". I then used my coluzzle to cut out the center circle. I stamped En Francias Background on the river rock in the background. I adhered the edges on with the red sticky tape. I put the dots around the edge of the scallop circle punch with the white gel pen. I cut out the center flower with my paper scissors and that is mounted on the background with a pop up glue dot. The pearl is from the Pretties kit and adhered with a mini glue dot. The flowers on the outside are punched out with the Boho Blossoms punch. I sponged around the edges with Soft Sky ink. I punched the corners with the rectangle punch and tied the stitched ribbon. How's it look Liz? :)
