I got this idea from Tamara, but instead of putting it in the "Almost" Daily Page Inspirations thread I thought I would just try and do a technique or tutorial every Tuesday. I don't guarantee that I will have one ready every Tuesday, but I am going to try. What I am planning to do is try a new technique or tutorial every week, post the directions, how hard I think it is on a scale of 1-5, about how long it took me, and my finished project.

My challenge to you is to give them a try!!!


So my first Tuesday Technique/Tutorial is.....

A Shadow box card tutorial

Detailed directions can be found here: Shadow Box Card Tutorial The Sunset House – Papercrafts, Photography, and Recipes for Life

Approximate time from start to finish: 15-45 minutes (depends on the amount of decorating you do, or if you stamp an image or use a cricut image)

Difficulty: 1 (easy)

Alterations I made to the directions above: Instead of stamping an image on the inside part of the card, I layered some paper and put a cricut image on pop dots. I also just used my circle cutter to make my cutout as I don't have the Nestabilities die. To make the frame, I just cut out a circle the size of my opening and then cut the circle the next size bigger around it.

My finished card:

From the front

From a slight angle from the top (so you can see how it sits up on its own)

Now I challenge you to give it a try!! Post your Shadow box cards here!!
