Welcome to the Spellbinders Shadowbox Blog Hop!
I'm so excited about today's project. If you love shadowbox frames, you have to check out the amazing new Shadowbox Dies by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders! I've created an encouragement shadowbox frame today with the 1" Border Dies, the Make Today Count Glimmer Plate, and florals from the February Large Die of the Month Club Kit Dies. Let's get started!
I created a 5 1/2" fsquare rame. The awesome thing about these dies is that you can create any size frame depending on how long you cut your strips of paper! I wanted a 5 1/2" square frame so I cut four panels of black cardstock 4" (the width of the shadowbox edge dies) x 5 1/2". I then used the the Adjustable Shadowbox Frame with 1" Border Dies to cut the ends of the cardstock panels. I also cut four of the connectors from the die set.
If you're looking for an instructional video on how to assemble these shadowbox frames, check out Becca's awesome tutorial HERE.
Once the frame was assembled, I used the Glimmer Hot Foil System and the Make Today Count Glimmer Plate with Gold Foil to foil the design on white cardstock. My cardstock panel measured 5 1/2" square. I adhered the panel to the back of the frame and then die cut a bunch of flowers from the February Large Die of the Month Club Kit Dies using white and gold specialty cardstocks and adhered them along the bottom edge of the frame.
If you're looking for a way to make your shadowbox free standing, the Filligree Shadowbox Easel and Pocket can be used as an easel really easily! I trimmed off the bottom of the pocket, folded the die cut in half and secured it to the back of my shadowbox frame.
