Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I made after being inspired by Jennifer McGuire's slimline shadow box tutorial. I had to create it differently, as I don't have the dies she used, but I managed, by using a single square die 3 times, and elongating other rectangular dies, to create the slimline shape.
Now I've tried to show how the shadow box stands in the photos, but that's difficult. The give a 3D effect, as the blue night sky is around an inch behind the coloured images.
For my first card I've used some images from a Birdie Brown set, with a little Rudolph and Sleigh from another set. I had the Birdie Brown images from when she used to sell them digitally, before MFT sold them in stamp form, so I could resize them easily.
For my second card, I've used some snowmen from Sunny Studio Designs Feeling Frosty stamp set, colouring and fussy cutting them before adhering to the card. I created some snowy banks for the snowmen to stand on. The sentiment on both cards is from the Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrops stamp set.
I created the blue snowy backgrounds by blending Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks onto a panel, then splattering with water to create the snow effect, before adhering to the back of the card.
Hope you like my makes today... please say hello if you do..
