Hello everyone...hope you had a great weekend!!! Are you ready for a super fun and easy technique?? ( hummmm...I think I say that every week..LOL!!)
Sue (bensarmom) sent me a PM suggesting this super fun challenge...a Shadow Box card!!! Here is the link to the video on Karen's blog Stamping Videos.
You really need to watch the video to get the folds just right...I thought this was going to be difficult but I was shocked at how easy it was!!!
Supplies includes an 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of two sided designer paper, a strip of designer paper for the belly band, a bone folder, and what ever decorations you want on the front and the inside. Now, go to the video for the directions!!
You might want to use a piece of computer paper for the first one so you don't mess up a piece of dp...I used a piece of dp that was too heavy and the folds didn't work.
I remember finding instructions for this card way back when I first started stamping. I think it was called Jane's Box card. I lost the instructions (or we would already have it in the resource section *smile*) and can't wait to try it out again.
Thanks for a great challenge!
Hugs and smiles
Hmmm, looks interesting but I don't have a live link on her blog to watch the video.
I am so sorry!!! If you go to Stampingvideos.com, it will take you to her blog and on the right side you will see a link to all her videos. Select the Pull out Shadow Box video...third one down. Hope you can find it this way!!!
A challenging challenge, Joan.......but fun, and not so hard after working out the "kinks" (my own kinks : ) ) with printer paper. I'm sure I will use this technique again. Makes an impressive presentation. Thanks to you....and Karen.

I had fun with this, but standard European printer paper wasn't the right size for a trial run. We make a lot of origami boxes in this house which helps - DH wants to give this technique a go.
