I decided to try another Shadow Box card. I learned how to make these in Laurie Gibsons card class and hadn't been brave enough to try one on my own until now. I think it turned out rather nice. Gor-ge-ous! I got the color inspiration from Curtain Call Act 34. At first I didn't know about that Dusty Durango, however I've decided I rather like that different look in there. Thanks Stacey I would never have put these colors together without you.

I started with a Whisper White 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card. I then layered it with Sahara Sand 5x5 that I ran through the Big Shot with the new Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. The Dusty Durango is 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 and then layered with Whisper White 2 x 3 1/2. The sentiment and flowers are from the new stamp set, Elements of Style and are stamped in Basic Gray. Then I found some dsp that was Sahara Sand with little white leaves and flowers and it looks almost silvery in person. I thought Wow! I would really like that on the top, but it was too filmsy to stand up like it should. So, I got out my anywhere glue stick and put it on a piece of Whisper White 5 x 5 1/4 and glued it to my dsp to make it stronger. Worked like a charm! I then ran that through the Big Shot with the Clear Circle Die, scored each side at 1/4 and 1/2, used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on the top and bottom and Wal-la, I have a shadow box. I then made two roses with the Big Shot, the Floral Fusion Sizzlet and Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I put them together with glue dots and put a pearl in the center of each and cut a leaf with the 2-step Bird Punch out of Basic Gray and it's finished. I really love it, hope you do too.

Thanks for stoppin in!

Have a Blessed Day!
