Freebie Friday # 2 - Shadow Box Card

Hello crafty peeps!

This is the second in an occasional series I'm calling Freebie Friday, where I show you what I've made using the free gifts on the front of crafty magazines.

Today I have a clever idea to show you - when you open the card, a shadow box pops up, but the whole thing folds flat for posting ...


I followed a tutorial on You Tube by the lovely Jennifer McGuire - check out her channel for LOADS of inspiration - and I used the freebie stamp and die set from the front of Papercraft Essentials #160.

It's a really fun project and much easier to do than it looks - I enjoyed it so much I made three! Here's a ten-minute tutorial on my You Tube so you can see how it was made ...


I hope you enjoy watching and have a go at this yourself - there are so many fun variations you could try :o)

Thanks for popping in today, see you again soon!

Love Annie xxx

Such a cute little card, Annie! I hope it brightens up your father's mood and that he's feeling better soon. I've been binge buying some back issue craft magazines just for the freebies - will check this out on Ebay!
