Spellbinder's Shadow Box collection - Tea with my Bestie


Hi Everyone!!!

Today I'm here to share another project I made with some of the products from the Spellbinders Shadowbox collection. It’s amazing how easy it is to make a card that look this elegant and elaborate! Here I wanted to make a card from Shapeabilities Layered Friends Forever Café Scene but still get the feeling of depth. This is just two layers on top of the cardbase matted with patterned paper but it really gives you a feeling that there are many more layers.
I decorated the  beautiful Callista Rectangle Shadowbox Frame with flowers from the cafe set - I LOVE this die. 
.



Spellbinders supplies
