Fancy Folds Blog Hop: Shadow Box Card

Hello and Welcome to another Fancy Folds Blog Hop! We are an International team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, who have come together to showcase different folding projects each month. Today our design team is excited to showcase the Shadow Box Card.

If you're already hopping then you just came from the Talented Gina Connor's blog. If you're just joining, no problem! Just use the "Next" Button below and hop all the way around!

Today, I've used the adorable stamp set: Garden Girl. I just had to have this set when I heard that Stampin' Up! was coming out with the Stampin' Blends, as it's perfect to colour.

My card doesn't really have a colour combo per say, but I used Whisper White cardstock, Crumb Cake cardstock, Wood Texture DSP, Basic Black ink (for the greeting), Black Momento Ink (for the colouring images) and the Stampin Blends.

To be honest, at first I didn't really get the point of this fold... it seemed kind of under whelming. But after creating a card with it, I really like it and can see the potential for it.

If I were to do my card over again, I might actually change up my dimensions a bit. For this fold, it was scored at 1/2" and 1" on each end of my 2 pieces of cardstock... I find with those measurements it leaves quite a bit of space (1" to be exact) in between to embellish. I think next time, I might try 1/2" and 3/4" on either end, creating only a 1/2" space. Oh! and I'd also colour behind my flowers before popping them up. (face palm! I don't know where my head was at for those!)

Well, Thanks for hopping in. I hope you like what I created with the Shadow Box Card fold and hope you'll give it a try. Up next is theTalented Satomi Wellard. Enjoy!
