Shadow Box card Tutorial


Hello All,

I have been on a bit of a creative roll lately (I think it’s because i have a “new” craft desk!)


I have been enjoying creating different card blanks so here is a tutorial for a shadow box  card!


Step One.


Cut 2 pieces of card stock to be 15cm wide by 10 .5cm tall.


Step two.


On both pieces score at 1cm, 2cm, 13cm and 14cm. Fold the front of your card to have Valley (Down) folds and the bottom of the card to have Mountain folds (Up)


Step three


One the piece that you want to use for the front of your project create an aperture. I used My Die cutting machine using Crafts-Too labels 2 dies (the 2nd biggest die) I also positioned my aperture slightly closer to the top of my card to leave room, for a sentiment below, but again where you place yours is up to you.




Step Four


Create image in the middle of your shadow box. I have cut a piece of coordinating paper (Kate Knight Totally tropical) to 10cmx10cm and attached to center of card back and used the label made when cutting the aperture to layer over the top. Then decorate as you like!


Step Five


Attach front and back using glue of your choice and Ta da you have one of these..
