I’m really excited that this is going thru and we’ll be learning tons together and having tons of fun! First, check out that list of TALENT in my sidebar! If you want to see the kind of amazing things in store click those links and check out their blogs. I couldn’t have possibly pulled this off without them! THANK YOU!!! I am turning 30 years old on October 12th and these 30 days are my way to celebrate! I’m thrilled that these ladies agreed to celebrate with me 🙂
In the sidebar you’ll also see a blog badge that you can grab, I suggest you do! because if you click that badge in MY sidebar you can link up your blog and all month I will randomly be giving away some goodies to people who have the badge up. I kept saying GET THE BADGE, I hope you listen!
For the first day I have a little How To for you as well as a Candy! I’ll be showing you how to make a Shadow Box Card. Here we go!
First you’ll need 2 pieces of paper measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″, one for the front of your card and one for the back.
Next take those 2 papers and score them, from both the left and right edges, at 0.5″ and 1″
Next take the back piece of paper and decorate it! Get crafty!
Now take the front piece of paper and cut a window into the center of the middle panel. I used my Spellbinders and Nestie to do a circular window.
Now that you have your window to see in to your Shadow Box, decorate the front!
If you haven’t already, fold on your scored lines to create the “box.” Front should fold back and out and the back folds forward and out. Then take your front and back and use you adhesive of choice to adhere the two outward folded portions.
Do any other decorating you’d like to a VIOLA! You’re done!
This is a really fun card as it flattens out for mailing, fits in a regular A2 envelope and when pulled back out stands on its own! I can see a lot of fun coming from this style of card. It could also make a really fun christmas card.
Now for the candy! I am giving away a little “kit.”
In this little kit you’ll get everything you need to recreate your own version of this card plus a little more 🙂
To get into the drawing for this all you have to do is tell me, in the comments, what kind of card you would use the Shadow Box card to make. You might be inspiring someone! This is the first giveaway and you’ll have all the way thru Oct 29th to get your entry in. We will be announcing the winners of this candy and all the candies coming this month on October 31st. Lots of Candy for Halloween! 🙂 Thanks for stopping and we’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
