Shadow Box Card for Mom

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a shadow box technique challenge.  There are a couple of ways to create these cards and the possibilities are endless for both.  See below for video tutorials on both shadow box techniques.

I wanted to create a card that would open like a gift so I went with the second technique.  I had a great time making my mother’s day card.  I have a printer that will print to the edge of the paper so I printed my DSP using My Digital Studio.  I used the Elegant Soiree digital DSP and printed on both sides of the paper.  I did use the rubber stamp set Nature Walk for the images and used a blender pen with Marina Mist classic ink pad to color the flowers on the image.  The layers for the inside of my card were created with Sizzix dies and SU punches.  The sentiments are from the retired stamp sets Vintage Labels and Fancy Flexible Phrases.  Hop on over and get inspired by our very talented design team and show us your shadow box technique.
