Sweet Birdie Shadowbox and Card

Hi, everyone!  I have the pleasure once again of designing with Spellbinders beautiful dies.  This time it's the Shadow Box Collection by Becca Feeken.  That link will take you to the entire shadowbox collection.  Specifically, today I'm sharing the Shadowbox Frame with 1/2" Border and the Layered Sweet Birdie Thanks Scene.  Let's start off with the shadowbox.




Isn't that the sweetest little spring scene?  I don't make many 3-D items, but I'll tell you these shadowbox scenes are addictive.  Instructions and videos are available at Spellbinders when you click on each shadowbox.  I watched a video once and closely followed step by step, and a few days later made another frame without looking at the instructions.  Easier than you might think!  These dies are an engineering marvel.

For this one I used a soft yellow-green card stock for the frame and covered just the front of it with designer paper, which I did before it was folded up.  All the parts for the scene were cut from card stock and designer paper, keeping it soft and simple.  The flowers and leaves in the corners are extra dies included in the set, and I dressed them up further with Spellbinders Bird Scrolls.




Not just for shadowboxes, the Layered Sweet Birdie Thanks Scene makes a darling card.  For the shadow box I left off the "thanks" die, but you can see it here, sentiment and scene in one arched window.  So cute!  I cut a paper panel with Scored and Pierced Rectangles, then cut the arched window into that.




I wanted to show you the inside of the card, too, so you can see an additional birdie die that comes with the set.   There's an even smaller bird, too.  Love!




Use one layer or all three.  Make a shadowbox any size and put anything you want in it.  Mix and match.  Personally, I 💗 these dies!

I'll be back Friday with more of the Shadowbox Collection by Becca Feeken.  Heads up:  It's Christmas and masculine, same shadowbox die, different scene.  Hope to see you then!

Beautiful shadow box Spring scene, Leslie. I love how you used such soft DSP designs for your shadow box and added all your pretty little flowers and birdies. Thank you for sharing all your photos too. I know that takes a lot more time, which I appreciate my friend. Looks like we are going to get some early Spring weather this week...dry and sunny:-) TFS...Hugs..Nancy

Oh my gosh this is just too pretty. I love how you used the yellow paper with the blue. This little bird is just too sweet. Love the card too. They both just make me happy.

Your shadow box is just beautiful! I love it. The soft colors and the pretty little birds are so pretty! It's nice that you can use the die for a card as well. Thanks for the inspiration.

The shadowbox and your card are both beautiful I love the pastel colors. It just screams SPRING! Now if the rain would just stop. Of course, I'm going to have to go check these out.

I have seen those and you have done a wonderful job with this, love the paper you used for the framing and the corner dies you used on the frame go so well with your inner bird die and swirls. It made a beautiful card too, love those sweet little yellow flowers on the card with it! Beautiful spring creations!

Every little detail is so neat in/on your cards, Leslie! Everything. These are darling cards with the soft spring colors and those cute little birds. These are special cards.

So cute and springlike. Love it.

Pauline said...

GORGEOUS! I'm sorry I never arrived here yesterday. Leslie, you are simply amazing when it comes to card creations. Both are spectacular in every way. Not only do I love the layered birdie scene but you always add that extra touch to make them special. And the inside is so sweet with that little birdie - sigh! I so wish I could order from Spellbinders directly but cost way too much in CAD$. They are charging $25 just to ship then the cost of dies and duty! Hopefully I can find it on SSS, or somewhere else! I can't wait to see your masculine version on Friday. Hugs,

Pam Sparks said...

So beautiful Leslie! Your designs with these dies are gorgeous! I love your picks for papers, cardstock and elements so much! And next Christmas! I can't wait to see!!!! I heart Christmas! :D

Stacy Morgan said...

Both are so pretty and I adore the way they can match together. The shadow box is a clever die. Soft and springy colors on both which is awesome.

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Leslie! Your tweet shadowbox is GORGEOUS! I love the dainty details, and your beautiful papers. Beautifully done! xx

Cindy Beach said...

As a fellow bird-lover, I find these projects delightful for spring! The shadow box is elegant and having a die to make it easy seems the perfect tool. Lust love the colors you've used! The spray of tiny flowers is such a sweet detail. The card with the sweet scene and sentiment is beautiful!

Lynette said...
