Shadow Box Card...




Hello everyone! Simona's here to show you my latest project for Scrap & Craft DT.

For this card I have used one of my favourite collections by Craft O' Clock,  'Morning Dreams II'... pastel colours and wood patterns...I love it!
I thought that these double-sided papers were perfect to create a Shadow Box..then went the extra lenght and turned into a Shadow Box card.

Let's start with the box...
Use a sheet 12 x 12 inches, score at 1 – 1 ½ – 2 ½ – 3 inches, do this on all 4 sides. Then only on the top and the bottom sides score at 4 inches and 8 inches ONLY down to the 2nd score line...(see pic below for reference)



Then trace with a pencil the 'cutting' lines...please see pic below, do the same on the four corners and cut them out.


Crease the scored lines then attach double sided tape...start to shape the box glueing the longer sides first, and there you have it...your little Shadow box.



For the inside I have fussy cut some lovely flowers from the collection...to achieve a dimensional look I have used foam tape on the back, then added few die cut leaves. Glued some ribbon, half pearls and a sentiment stamped on leftovers .




For the card cut a piece of heavy cardstock to 6 ½ x 13 ½ inches and score at 7 inches then 7 ½ .
In order to keep it shut I decided to make a magnetic closure...for this cut a strip from the same cardstock 3 ½ x 1 ¼ inches, score at 1 ½ and 2 inches now glue a very thin magnet on the inside of the strip, pick up the second magnet and find the proper place to attach it to the front of the card, where it will be covered by the decoration.

I have decorated the front of the card quite simply, using a piece of the patterned paper cut to 6 ¼ x 6 ¼ . Used leftovers and white cardstock to cut labels for the sentiment, added some satin ribbon and half pearls...Finally it's time for secure the Shadow Box on the inside, with double-sided tape.



A special card for a special someone...
