I stamped all of the images on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.  I wanted to showcase the deer by creating a shadow box card.  This card can be folded flat and inserted in an envelope for mailing.  I followed a shadowbox tutorial on pinterest.  here’s what you need:

  1.  Cut two pieces of card stock measuring 4 1/4 X 6 3/4, and score 1 1/4 from each long edge.
  2. Die-cut a square window from the center of one of the panels (this is your front piece).  You will later on connect both panels to create your shadow box.
  3. Cut a 4 1/4 square panel of patterned paper and adhere to the center of the second card panel (this is your back piece).  (You can do your stamping here before you assemble the box).
  4. Cut two pieces of green card stock. One is measuring 1 1/4 x 5 and the other is measuring 1 x 5 and score from each long edge at 3/8″
  5. I used the Newton’s Nook Grass Border die to die-cut the green panels.
  6. Adhere some score tape on each scored panels.
  7. Fold the ground panels flat, flush to the card’s bottom edge. Fold right side flat over them to adhere.
  8. Attach the images you need to decorate your shadow box.
  9. Fold box flat and adhere right side flaps to close the card.

Here are some step-by-step photos:

Here is the card:

You can also use acetate sheets to suspend some images inside your shadow box (i.e., birds, clouds, etc.)  I hope you got inspired today to create your own shadow box.

I stamped all of the images on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

I die-cut a piece of white card stock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 and used a die from my stash to cut out the window.  I also used another die to die-cut a branch for my Owl to perch on.  I finished my design my adding the pink hearts from the Love Bites die set (showcased yesterday).  Here’s my first card:
