Cream Shadow Box

Good morning to you all.  Hope everybody is feeling well getting plenty of crafting in.  Unfortunately Mr Mojo is still playing away from home and I am struggling to make cards.  Instead I decided to go with this little shadow box.  I'm never quite sure what to call them; I used to call them box cards  but I decided maybe shadow box is better.

My Project


Recipe
Cream card stock - Jelly Bean Crafts
Pink card stock - Pennies Worth
Sentiment - Quietfire Designs
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Leaves - Britannia Wreath Strip
Die Cuts - Spellbinders Label 1 and Decorative Labels 1
Pearls from Stash

I originally made  a shadow box at a Make and Take by Oyster Stamps at the NEC about three years ago.  When I got home I wrote down the instructions while they were still fresh in my mind and since then I have made lots. I made a double A frame and glued it to the back of the box so that it could be free standing. On occasions I have actually attached them to a card base but I must admit that I prefer it like this.

Well that's it from me. Take care.
