Christmas Shadow Box

Why make a card when you can make a shadow box? And it’s sparkly!

I just got back from Atlanta, Georgia where I had the good fortune to attend Stampin’ Up! OnStage and Brian King’s World Card Making Day event. I got to meet lots of new people and many Facebook friends, too.

While I was there I also had a few of my burning questions answered:

  • How tall is Brian King? VERY tall. Beyond measurement, really.
  • Mary Fish can jump REALLY high. I mean, higher than kangaroo high.
  • Sometimes it does take the bartender more than one try to make me the perfect Dirty Martini.
  • It is indeed possible to clap so hard that you bruise your palms.
  • Yes, this here Yankee could teach the Southern gals at my table a few new tricks! Y’all come back now, y’hear? And finally,
  • Whether they’re five or sixty-five, a good chunk of your audience will FAIL at following directions! And at listening for said directions!  😉

Here’s my anything but a card 3D shadow box

One of the events of World Card Making Day was a 3D swap. I decided to make a shadow box.  I actually wound up making about five of them. One of them was successful (guess which one that was, one through four don’t count), and it is so sparkly that no matter how I took the picture it’s really hard to see the fine details!

Christmas Shadow Box

Here’s another look, this time from the table where all the swaps were laid out, and where you can at least make out the detail!

Christmas Shadow Box

This shadow box is made completely from a 12 x 12 piece of Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper.

I leave you now with some words of wisdom. So until next time, stay thirsty, my friends! ~ Amy
