In Paris Shadow Box Card

Hello crafters!

I decided to create something different ^_^ as a gift for a friend . 

The Shadow box card was a perfect way to capture the scene of 

french cafe.

I used some very heavy card stock this time and it really did help


I'm sure the recipient will get excited when she notices that the card is dimensional and will display it with delight.

Happy Birthday Card ^_^

Hi everyone
I’d like to share this cute shadow box card with you today.



I had lots of fun coloring the stamped image with watercolors then i layered it with cool pattern paper.


I finished it all wit pink ribbon, music notes die cut & crochet flowers ^_^


card design instructions :
"This tutorial was found on Pinterest & designed by DebDuz scrappin"

1. Cut (2) pieces of cardstock 17 cm *13 cm
2. While cardstock is laying horizontally, score
at 1cm and 2cm from each edge of cardstock.
3. On only ONE of the two pieces, cut out a
center opening. Do not cut this opening too close
to the left/right edges, otherwise when you fold
your card flat, you will see the folded pieces in
your cut out opening. So if you are scoring at 1cm
then you want to make sure you have a 1 cm space

between score line and cut out opening.
4. Fold on score lines.
5. Glue the front to the back on the first folded flap
On each side of the card.
6. Embellish card as desired

Coffee & Friends Card

Here is my March DT project for Crafts Dreamy. There is a monthly challenge at their blog http://craftsdreamy.blogspot.com.eg/ where you will find all the details & a new mood board each month for inspiration. This month the main inspiration is coffee.....
I have created a card based around coffee & friends.
First I created some matts & layers with coffee themed papers, then I repeatedly stamped a coffee cup onto a piece of card to add ontop.
I then made a small shaker window with fussy cut coffee beans inside, before adding a coffee themed sentiment & some stamped images that I coloured with watercolours. I finished it all off with some Hessian ribbon & coloured flatback pearls.






Supplies list :
-
STAMPS
Altenew - Coffee Love
Stampers Anonymous - Coffee themed stamps
INKS-
Tim Holtz Distress inks - Vintage photo & mowed lawn
