French Shadowbox Card

The Shadowbox Card technique was featured as an online Bonus technique in the October/November '09 newsletter. I think that many of you may have been intimidated by the construction aspect of this card. Let me tell you - it is so easy! Once you figure it out, you will become addicted to making them.

All the stamps I used for my card are from Oxford Impressions' Marie Antoinette and Le Beau Monde stamp collections. The images were all stamped on smooth white cardstock from Paper Temptress using Archival black ink, and colored with Distress inks and a water pen (I am not big on coloring, so this was a fun challenge for me!). I felt like it needed a little more sparkle, so I edged the window and the outside of the card with glitter.

I hope that this will encourage you all to try this fun and versatile card!
