Hello and welcome to the first Fancy Folds Blog Hop of the year. The Fancy Fold which we are show casing this month is the beautiful but simple “Shadow Box ” card. We have a new bundle – Charming Café (page 25), in the new Spring/ Summer catalogue which I thought would be perfect for a shadow box card. So I have made 2 cards to show you what you can do with this gorgeous stamp and co-ordinating framelits bundle.
To make a Shadow Box card, I cut two pieces of card measuring 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″. On both pieces of card I scored on the left and right side at 1/2″ and 1″. Then I used a bone folder and creased the card into a “Mountain – Valley ” fold, this allows the front of the card to sit forward.
The first card is using one of the co-ordinating stamps and framelit. I stamped the image using Momento Black ink and then I used my blender pens to colour in the flowers- Light and dark Pink Pirouette and Light and Dark Old Olive. I love love love the new Whisper White Organza ribbon which is on page 23 in the new catalogue.
The second card is still using stamps and framelits from Charming café bundle. I coloured in the image using the blender pens again but I also used a Aqua Painter to add a soft colour to the window panes and the floor.
Next on the hop is the very talented Martha from Canada. Click on the “NEXT” button below and it will take you to her blog for you to see what she has done with this fabulous fold.
