April Creative Cafe' Kit Shadow Box

Hi All!  Kristine here today to share a fun Shadow Box Card that I made with the April Creative Cafe'Card Kit-Dancin' in the Rain.  If you haven't made a shadow box card before, you should give it a try!

For the main base of the card you'll need two pieces of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" pieces of cardstock. (I used 1 turquoise and one white panel)  and 1 panel of patterned paper that measures 3 3/8" x 4 1/8".

Score the two panels of cardstock at 1/2", 1", 4 1/2", and 5".

Die cut an oval shape in the turquoise panel.

Die cut a slightly larger oval in the patterned paper panel.

Adhere the patterned paper panel to the turquoise panel with Scrap Happy Glue.

Lightly trace the oval shape onto the white panel to help you with proper stamp placement and then stamp the images you want on the panel.  Color as needed.  When you are happy with the panel, erase the pencil.

Fold on the score lines as shown below.

Adhere the two panels together with Scrap Happy Glue.

Add the clouds and the sentiment with 3D squares to add dimension.

Here is another look at the finished shadow box.

Here's another shadow box I made.  Aren't they adorable?!?  We'd love to see yours so be sure and share with us!

What a clever idea and you've made it look relatively simple to do; Thanks for the tutorial, the inspiration and the guts to have a go at making my own shadow box card.

Thanks for sharing that great tutorial! I'm always looking for new ways to make a "card". I'll be trying this soon!

So, does it lie flat for posting and if so what kind of box do you use? Thanks
