Shadow Box Card

Shadow Box Card by Bridget Louw

Hi Bridget here with my last card tutorial for 2013. This one is super quick and easy to make thanks to the amazing range from Couture Creations products.

The card measures 5” high x 8.5” wide.

Cut 2 pieces of base car at 5” x 8.5” Score both pieces at 1”, 1 ¾” 6 ¾” and 7”


From 2 different patterned papers cut the decorative panels for the front and inside of the card, 4 ¾’ x 4 5/8”.

The pink panels measure 7/8” x 4 7/8”.

Line up the 2nd largest die (from the C0723044 Nesting Dies: Oval set) in the center panel of the card base and cut out a window. Do the same with the front decorative panel and glue all patterned paper panels down.

Stamp an image on marker blending card and colour as desired. Cut the image out using the same oval die.
Line this up on the back panel, aligning it with the cut out window.

The last step before the final assembly is to die cut one Sophia Premium Intricutz Die Collection Clements CO723500 from a colour of your choice and decorate with Couture Creations Pearls.

To adhere the from panel to the back panel, fold your score lines then put some double sided tape just on the 1” panels on the left and right of the card, stick these panels to the same ones on the back.

Using C0723049 Nesting Dies: Victorian Rectangles cut out the smallest die, stamp a sentiment on it and adhere it with C0721963 Foam mounting Tape

And that is it, your card is all done, in no time at all.
