JUGS Color Challenge Shadow Box Card


JUGS challenge this week was to use red, white and blue in our cards. I have been wanting to make a shadow box card ever since I learned how to make one at the Madison Mingle. It is very simple actually. Just cut two pieces of cardstock 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" and score at 1/2" and 1', fold and attach as shown in the pix below.


The funny sayings and "hare" stamp are from Skipping Stones Design. I cut the hole out of the front with a nestie and then a smaller scalloped nestie to frame it.


The last pix is the back- when I cut out perfectly shaped ovals and they are sitting on my desk, I just have to use them. The sentiment is a sticker. I flattened out the shadow box for this pix to show how you can easily send the card in the mail.
