Christmas Shadow Box Card

I have been attending a Stampin tech class on Tuesdays for a year now. We learn a few techniques and the next meeting we have the option to swap a card using one of the techniques.

Our June meeting technique was a shadow box card. Our next meeting in August I swapped this card. I like the idea of a shadow box card for Christmas as those are the cards that are frequently on display.

You need: two 1/4 sheets cardstock scored at 1/2, 1, 4 1/2, 5 inches using the Simply Scored tool along the length. Punch out a shape on top layer - I did a circle here but many would work. Stamp and place images on bottom layer so they show thru window. Decorate outside of card. Adhere layers together with red sticky strip tape. Regular mono adhesive may eventually pull apart.

If you keep embellishments fairly flat you could mail this card. You could even pop a picture in it.

Happy Stampin, sandy

Thank you for stopping by today!

Keep being creative, Sandy
