Shadow Box Card


The card for my class tomorrow is a shadow box. I love the colours lilac and silver for Christmas cards and when I saw Stamping for the Weekend has this same colour combination for their challenge I just had to enter.

The easiest way I find to make this card is to add the paper to the card before I score it. Made an aperture with a nesti and then covered with a silver frame.

I stamped a Christmas tree onto the waste aperture and then embossed with silver embossing powder. Covered the tree with liquid pearls and also added some of the Robins Nest Tear Drops. Punched out lots of snowflakes and added one to the top of the tree along with a card candy.

Before I joined the two pieces of card together I put ribbon around and then tied a bow. After joining the card the front was finished off with punched snowflakes, leaves, silver bows and more card candy.

I’m sure the girls will just love making this card tomorrow.

    Shirl this shadow box is beautiful! It is so elegant. I wouldn’t think of lilac as a Christmas color but boy did you make it work!
    This card would also work for the Crazy for Challenges this week, it is punches in case you’re interested.
