Here is a card that I made using the Bandanna Techinique from Techinique Junkies! I had so much fun making this card and especially that I made it for my sweet friend Judy aka Tinker Bell. I did this a while back, but was to pleased at the way it came out, that I thought I would share it with you. The center stamp is from the Studio G set I spoke of in my last post and the fun background stamps are from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. Thanks for stopping by to take a look! Big Hugs and Have a great day!

Sharing a "Shadow Box"

The 4 pictures you see below are of the same card. I was trying to take enough pictures, so you can see the whole card. This card is called a "Shadow Box" card that I got from Dawn's Stampin Studio...her link is to the right sidebar under my favorite blogs!

This card is sooooo fun and easy to make. I punched it up a notch from Dawn's by using my small circle Nestibilties to punch the opening and the inside piece. This card is made by using 2 pieces of c/s in you choice of colors. Scor at 1/2" and 1" on each side. Cut your hole in the middle and add what you want to show through the window, decorate the outside if you wish....Then using sticky strip adhere the ends together. Then push the ends in towards the middle and the card opens like a shadow box. You can flatten it back out to mail and the receiver can push the ends together, so that they can display it any way they wish to. Can you just imagine the possibilites with this card. Sorry for the blurry picture. Sometimes I am more camera challenged than others!

The Stamp in the middle that I used is from Studio G, which has 4 Thank you type Stamps in it! I also used a staple on the front from my EK Success Stapler. They sell these at Michael's and come with the neatest staples and a little Acrylic piece with a flower behind it (don't remember who they are from though).

I hope you like the card and would love your comments or if you make one, I would love to see your version. Just let me know where you post yours and I would love to go see! Hugs Lori
