When Tonic launched their Shadow Box Creation Die Set I knew I just had to have it. There are so many possibilities available with this set of dies. I have previously made my own version of shadow box card but it took a great deal of figuring out and measuring. This card is my first creation made with the set and I can envisage making lots of different cards and home decor projects in the future. For details of all dies etc used and to see the full sized images just click on the individual picture. The photos featured in this post have been added to the Ladies Extra Special Gallery.
The shadow box is really easy to put together, I used 2 for this card and joined them together with an additional piece of card down the spine. The decorative layers I found to be a bit of a challenge to get symmetrical, even cuts and also to fit the frames onto the box, either my card stock stretched or the die is a smidge too big for the fit that I would prefer and I had to trim them. Having said that, the box was the main reason for me buying this and I’m not disappointed, I think I will use it more without the decorative layers.
