Happy Halloween Shadow Box Card
I had a fun afternoon of stamping with the Fabulous Five ladies yesterday. They have a private monthly stamping club with me and took the summer off. I'm happy to see them back stamping with me!!! They are very energetic, happy and a lot of fun to hang out!!!
We started our workshop with this fun shadow box card. It is very easy and fun to make. Believe or not, it becomes flat and you can put it in an envelope. Love it!!! The stamp in the shadow box is the Haunted Forest, one of the A la Carte stamps, in the Holiday Mini Catalog. We simply stamped it in Whisper White Craft ink on Basic Black card stock. Our Whisper White Craft ink is very rich and stands out on a dark card stock easily. No heat-embossing needed. We used the Big Shot to die cut the circle in the center of card front and then embossed with the Spider Web Embossing Folder.
I hope you like the card and try it yourself. Please leave me a comment if you have any questions. I've got to go now. I have a Big Shot workshop this afternoon and get to have more fun! Have I ever mentioned I LOVE my job? It's the best job ever........!!!
