LMS072 Inside Shadow Box Card

Lynn here with another Let's Make a Scene design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps using their newly released Enchanted Dogwood Multi Step Clear Stamps. I also used KSS Trees Multi Step Clear Stamps as well as sentiments from Words 4 Celebrating Clear Stamps. My card today was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's June 4, 2018 post in which she shared a video tutorial describing the construction of an inside shadow box card. It was truly easy to create with her clear and concise directions. Thank you, Jennifer!! Check it out and give it a try!! You won't be sorry!

It takes one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock to create this card cut in half either direction depending on which way you want the card to open.

You might remember another style shadow box I have used in the past. Both styles are fun to make and loved by those who receive them!

I am entering this card on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog in their June Anything Goes Challenge.

You might remember another style shadow box I have used in the past.
