Quiet Meadow Shadow Box Card

Inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video, I designed this Quiet Meadow Shadow Box card with movable butterfly for this month’s workshop. It is made a bit larger than one we made years ago which I can post here for you too.

To make this card, you start with two pieces of vanilla card stock 6 1/4″ by 5 1/2″. Scored and fold at 1/2″ and 1″ on each end of the 6 1/4″ sides. And then, when glued together and folded in, they create a standard A2 card that is 4 1/2″ by 5 1/2″. A rectangle is die cut in the center of the front panel. The die cut pieces are sponged with Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz and attached to the front side of the back panel. The butterflies are punched from the Butterfly Duet punch and sponged with the same colors. The little butterflies are popped up, and the large butterflies are attached by a strip of acetate between them. The other end of the acetate is connected between the front and back side edges when they are glued together.

Here is the first shadow box card I created years earlier.

If you enjoyed this post, I hope you try making this Quiet Meadow Shadow Box card. You will see how quick it creates a real WOW card.
