I love that they look 3D....it just brings them to life!






In my video I show how easy it is to use them and I share the pocket letter I made as well as the 2 cards so you can see how versatile these cards are.  They would also be great for pocket scrapbooking, gift tags, and so much more!!!

Christmas Shaker - Shadowbox?

I have been calling this a shadowbox shaker card but maybe that isn't exactly correct.  It's a shaker with some added dimension....kind of like a shadowbox.
To see what I'm talking about you will have to watch my video...and the video includes a tutorial so you won't want to miss it.

Like my last project, I'm using Memory Box dies.  
For this card I used 2 dies that work perfectly together!
and
Gentle Valley Oval 
and also this stamp set from Memory Box
Merry Christmas Sentiments stamp set
