Well, imagine my surprise...only 5 days post surgery and I am hoofing it! Ok, well, maybe that's a slight exaggeration but I am moving around quite well and actually was able to get to my craft room yesterday for day of fun! :)
I had seen these 3 dimensional shadow box cards on the Lori Whitlock blog and decided to buy a file to try out. Oh my goodness...it cut so well and was so much fun to put together. They fold flat for mailing and then you just sort of "square" it back out to the frame shape. I made this one for my son and daughter in law as they are celebrating their first Christmas as a married couple and I thought the 2 little red birds were just perfect.
It is constructed of 6 layers. I cut all from 8 1/2 by 11 sheets of heavy cardstock.
Here you can see the layers a bit better...
And the Peace Love Joy sentiment was stamped with a Hero Arts stamp and with Memento pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I love this card...it was such much fun and I'm hoping it goes through the mail well!
Happy Crafting and Happy Holidays!
