A few months back, I made this shadow box card and today I wanted to show you the quick tutorial on how to do this. I will admit that I am REALLY intimidated to try new techniques, especially special folds on my cards. Can you relate? There are some amazing folds that I love the look of, but never have tried. So I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and started small. This is so simple anyone can do it.
First take a 12” paper and cut it to 12 “x 4.5”. Then I scored my paper at 5.5” and again at 6.5”. This gives you the following results.
Then I used a Spellbinder’s Nestabilities Die to cut out a window.
I stamped my sentiment (or image) on paper for the inside of the card and decorated the front. The last step is to staple/glue or add a brad to the top of the card to close it.
Even if you don’t try this particular folded card, I hope you try something new and step outside your comfort zone. Its fun to do every once in a while!
