Garden Marci Shadow Box Card

La-la Land Crafts 2 day Workshop Project #9:
This card is extremely special – the special shape, the details, the image: everything about it is just wonderful.  Thank You, Irina for designing such a fabulous card.  It was truly a joy to assemble.  Card front inside the shadowbox: Note the die cut Picket Fence popped up with foam squares and couple “dots” of Gold Viva Pearl Pen.  LOVE the inside frame double mat papers used.Opening (shadow box) is 4-1/4” x 4-1/4” x 3/8”.  Finished project size: 6-1/2” x 6-1/2” x ¾”.  More details about this project in the photos below.

Garden Marci is popped with foam squares.
In the top left and bottom right corners, are a couple Open Leaf Flourish lightly sponged with brown ink and a couple “dots” of Gold Viva Pearl Pen.  There are three Cherry Blossoms: spritz with water, crumple, allow to slightly dry, then open – don’t forget to add the matched stamens (not sure HOW Irina was able to find matching stamens).  Add a little sponging of Ranger Distress Inks to match on the flower edges makes them ever so realistic, too. Also in the top left corner are two die cut Flag Banners: one is solid color card stock, top banner is pattern paper offset to show off the solid color underneath.
Card front, right side has a Tall Birdhouse with a butterfly, and at the bottom right corner is a a popped up Pot of Flowers from the Love to Garden die set.
Bottom left corner of the shadowbox opening is a neatly tied bow with a cute button, adhere using mini glue dots.
Here's a side view. The hinge for this card: even in this small area, paper is used to decorate the open space.  Love it!!!
Open the card to reveal: the top (underside of the front) is nicely matted to hide the mechanics of the shadowbox.   Nice touch!
Card inside for a personal message: how sweet can it be to receive this and also get a decorate card inside?  A heart flower pot from the Love to Garden die set and part of the Picket Fence (cut off from the front).  The graph design paper is perfect for this card, too.
Back of card: let’s not forget the back………….how cute it is to have another Tall Birdhouse die cut to adorn the back of the card?
Thank you for stopping by to visit today.  Stay tuned for more amazing projects from the 2 day La-la Land Crafts workshop.
