Easy to make shadow box cards

I love the idea of a card that can be a turned into a shadow box. I know it sounds complicated but these are ease to make shadow box cards. It is a very versatile card with lots of possibilities, how about putting pictures in the inside? As we have done before, we are going to start building the skills to create more complex shadow box cards. I can’t wait to show you the final one I have in my mind… if I am able to make it LOL.

The Hippiest Hippos from our Sale-A-Bration catalog pairs nicely with Whale Done Polymer Stamp set to create a beach themed card. Both the stamp set and the dies are is free with you $50 purchase. Isn’t it amazing? Let me know if you would like a catalog; send me an email and I will send it to you for free.

And if you like free, check out my rewards program, let me spoil you with gifts and more.

There are only 3-4 steps to the card itself. Watch the video tutorial if you have any doubts and do contact me for clarification, if you need it.

The card in the video tutorial is portrait, but I will also include the measurements fro the landscape option.

  • 2 pieces of Crumb Cake cardstock measuring 6-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • 2 pieces if white cardstock measuring 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
