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!
