This card was CASED from Debbie Henderson of Maine. I found it in Stampin' Up!'s on-line site exclusively for demonstrators. She made this a regular card. I wanted to make a shadow box card and changed the background coloring. The next card I make will have the moon on the other side since I shaded the right side of the house. I also will try other backgrounds. I remember a soot background that might be appropriate on this card. Coloring was done use Blendabilities.
Detailed instructions on how to make a shadow box card can be found on SplitcoastStampers under tutorials. This card uses (2) 4-1/4" by 5-1/2" pieces of cardstock that are scored on each short side at the 1/2" and 1" marks. One piece has the circle cut out. I find it easier to use a separate piece of card stock to stamp the scene and then adhere it to the card back. This card will flatten and can be mailed using a standard size envelope.
School has started and I am going to try and post something at least once per week! I can't believe this is the start of my 27th year with my school district.
