Shadow box card

Hello!  Are you enjoying your weekend so far?  Hope so!  I have a little project that I made yesterday that I wanted to share with you!  I have started sending my grandma (she is 94!) a card every day and I am trying to keep them fresh and different.  I found this idea and knew it would be perfect so I gave it a try!  It was super easy to make and I just love the way it looks all finished!  It is called a shadow box card. Here is is:
I was really tickled with how it came out!  It is pretty cute in person if I do say so myself! :)

Here is a view from the top. It stands up by itself and has lots of dimension to it.  In addition to being 3-D
 I used lots of pop dots! LOL

Here is a close up of the inside.  I 2 step stamped (say that 3 times real fast!) and then water colored the stems. I raised the insides of the flowers with pop dots and I stamped the tiny butterflies and  added Dazzling Diamonds to them to make them sparkle.

I also made a 3X3 card to send along with it.  I stamped the large flower once and the smaller flower 4x and cut out each section and layered them with pop dots.
Here is a side view to show the layers.

Here is the recipe for this project:
Stamps: Raining Flowers, Easy Events, Itty Bitty Bits and Thanks for Caring
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Island Indigo and Pear Pizzazz
Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Regal Rose, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla
Extras: Pop Dots, Pearls and Dazzling Diamonds

I plan on making more of these!  They fold flat to mail and make a nice table decoration!  
I will be back soonest with more to share!  Enjoy your Saturday!  Do something fun...stamp a little! :)
