Work of Art Shadow Box Card

I know it's been a while since I posted.  I've tried for a long time to post several times a week, and I've found that it's become more and more difficult to blog and give my family the time they need.  So while I have no intention of stopping, I will be blogging less, at least during the summer.

But the good news is that I do have a card to show you today!  This is one we made at stamp club a few weeks ago, and while it looks complicated, it's not.  I love the ease of shadow box cards, and the wow factor that they give.  If you'd like directions on how to make a shadow box card, click here.

This card uses the new set Work of Art.  I LOVE this set.  It's mostly comprised of brushstroke images, which are great for backgrounds.  For this card, I paired it with Gorgeous Grunge, and it's a match made in stamping heaven.  They are perfect together.  I topped the whole thing off with a couple of buttons I made from the Simply Pressed Clay and Molds.  If you haven't tried out clay yet, you really should.  It's so versatile and inexpensive...totally worth your money!
