Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Distressed Ink (Antique Linen, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Pickled Raspberry, Wild Honey, Shaded Lilac, Squeezed Lemonade and Faded Jeans), Crystal Micro Glitter, Quickie Glue Pen, Maroon Micro Glitter, Dove Blending Pen, Diamond Stickles and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by making a 6″ x 8″ shadow box out of White Card stock.  I based mine on this tutorial.  I wanted a little different look instead of just a shadow box so I took the sides from a Bendi Fold card and inserted them into the Shadow Box.  I played with different heights and lengths until I got the look I desired.  For a tutorial on how to make a bendi fold card click here.  Start by layering in a scene from the Woodsy Wonderland Paper Collection before adding your bendi fold strips.  I placed the strips on my desk and planned what I wanted on each layer and adhered them to the strips before attaching the strips to the frame.  All images were stamped on white card stock using Expresso Truffle before die cutting with the matching dies. The tall birch tree leaves were lightly distressed with Peeled Paint distressed ink the covered with a quickie glue pen and lightly dusting with Crystal micro glitter.  The deer and bunny images were distressed with Vintage Photo and dusted with Maroon micro glitter.  The flowers were colored with a dove blender pen and a combination of  Pickled Raspberry, Wild Honey, Shaded Lilac, Squeezed Lemonade and Peeled Paint distressed inks.  The little birdies were stamped on white card stock using Danube Blue and die cut with the matching die and distressed with Faded Jeans and Vintage Photo distressed inks.  The finishing touches were a ribbon sentiment from the Woodsy Wonderland Paper Collection and some Diamond Stickles!

Thanks so much for visiting.

Have a wonderful day!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
