Shadow Box Card

I have been playing with this silly card for a couple of weeks. I was so excited the day my order from Crafty Secrets arrived in the mail, hoping to get the creative juices flowing, but it took a few weeks. I had never ordered from them before, but when I saw these shadow box cards off I went...LOL...I finally finished playing with it last night, so here it is.



took this one with camera



and a scan what a difference in colors, huh!!!


I used all Paper Whimsy images, german scrap, paper flowers that I glazed and some glitter mist. They are lots of fun to make and I am thinking about playing with some lace and other goodies for the next one. The cards come in landscape and portrait style. I think I will try my hand at a portrait one next. They are easy to put together and have great instructions with them to assemble.

Debby,

This triptych is amazing. I love everything about it. I have often found that taking a photo with my camera and taking a scan results in showing colors in far different ways. I like using a camera when I have to photograph metallics, but prefer the scanner whenever it's possible.

I don´t know which one is better - with camera os scanner... I have also had difficoulties with taking pictures. You may need a studio to get realistic pictures (colours)!!!

I've actually never seen these before. They look very well constructed and upbeat. Wonder what will be next!

It looks like it all came together perfectly in the end. All crafters know the crazies that happen in the middle.
Well done!
