I made this card after I saw a video by Jennifer McGuire on shadow boxes.

My friend had a birthday and I had just bought this stamp from Heroarts and I thought this would be perfect.

So this is the front.


When you open the card this is what you see

For instructions on making this card, please go to Jennifer McGuire’s blog. But after I assembled the Basic box. I started with my panels. Since I had cut the oval for the inside, I used that on the outside of my card. I stamped the leaves on the outside, added a sentiment from mft stamps. Added the lilies from heartfelt creations die, colored with distress inks. The inside panel I colored with distress inks and then stamped the layered parrot, it looks so beautiful in real life. I stamped the leaves and added tiny flowers colored with distress inks from Impression Obsession dies.

Hers is another card my daughter made with the same stamps and Gina K design inks.

I love the bright colors and how everything pops out of the card. The second generation stamping and the color combinations.

Thank you for visiting and for your sweet comments.
