A SHADOW BOX PROJECT FOR THE OUTLAWZ


I created this shadow box project for the challenge at The Outlawz today.
It can't actually be called a card as it doesn't fold open like a card, and has no top or side fold, so I suppose it can be called
"anything but a card"

I looked at a couple of tutorials online, saw that they were in inches, so I decided to 'wing' this one, and make it up as I go along.  This is the result:



I used flowers, gems, a diecut and a precoloured background, along with white cardstock, with an embossed front.



I love the outcome, and have decided that this will be one of the projects my workshop ladies will be making on 4 July.

Thanks for popping by today.
