Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous week so far!
I have a definite love of shadow boxes but today I wanted to make a card so decided to combine the ideas and do both in one project 🙂

Other products: White Card Stock, Versafine Smokey Grey, Modge Podge Sparkle, Peeled Paint Distressed Ink, Bling, String and Decorative Metal Elements from my stash and die cutting machine.
Start creating the layers you want for the card. There are 3 layers all 6 1/2″ wide x 5″ tall with a 1/4″ scor down both of the 5″ sides. To get the layered shadow box look, the opening of each layer is a little smaller than the previous layer (1/2″ gives a lovely effect). Layer 1 will have a opening of 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Layer 2 will have an opening of 4″ x 3″ and Layer 3 will have an opening of 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″. Place a double layer of foam dots between each of the layers and then create another layer that will wrap around these 3 layers to finish it off. The top layer will have an opening of 5″ x 4″. The flowers were stamped using Versafine Smokey Grey and distressed with Memento Lilac Posies before lightly coating them with Modge Podge Sparkle. The small flower buds were distressed with Memento Angel Pink and the leaves were distressed with Peeled Paint distressed ink. Finally the sentiment was stamped with Memento Olive Green.
Thanks so much for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
