Tim Holtz Style Shadow Box Card Tutorial


Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a full tutorial for two sweet and simple Shadow Box Cards on the Frilly and Funkie blog.  I was very much inspired by THIS beautiful card by my friend Julie.  The beauty of this card design is that it folds flat for mailing, yet is quite dimensional when extended.  I hope you will hop on over and pin my tutorial, because I'm sure you will find these cards as easy as they are addictive to make.  Have a great Saint Patrick's Day!

Super design and love what you created. I will definitely have to try this sometime! ;-)

MaryH said...

As so many other commenters have said "These are both just gorgeous". Not only so pretty with so many details, but I like that each folds flat for mailing. I love the little vintage photos on each card, that adds such a touch of vintage & nostalgia, but loved the addition of the seasonal shamrocks on #1. #2 was very delicate with the intricate cut out in the window - great work on both of these, Autumn. TFS & hugs

I love these, Autumn, they look amazing and fun to make! Thank you for your tutorial which I need to check out. Love your St. Patty's box with the boy sitting on some shamrocks and carnation- perfect! Your second one is so pretty and sweet and I think the shadow box is a perfect fit for that gorgeous TH die cut (still haven't used mine yet!). I hope to see more of these in your blog posts. Hugs!
