Shadow Box Card Technique

Today's card was made by Julie K. from Terri's downline.  This was one of the cards I had received in last month's swap.  I LOVE it when I can participate in the swaps.  I don't always have the time to do that!  But when I do I always get such beautiful cards!!  

This technique is very fun to do too and it's not hard at all.  You need a 4" x 4" piece of designer paper.  Fold it in half and then fold it in half again.  Unfold it and fold each corner to the center of the paper where the fold lines meet (dead center).  Fold back the tips just to the outside of the outer folded edge.

You really need to make sure your paper is a perfect square or it will be off kilter.  And a bone folder will help make those creased on the second and third fold a lot sharper.

See, I told you it was easy to make.  Then all you do is add whatever you'd like on the inside of the shadow box and layer it on some card stock and you are done!!

That's it, easy peasy!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
