Cutting Cafe Inspiration - Shadow Box Cards!

Welcome to this edition of Cutting Cafe Inspiration!  Today we're playing with the Shadow Card File and I've used that and lots more today!  Lots of photos because it's almost two cards in!  I decided to go with a bit of a St. Patrick's Day theme...and Regina has a bunch of files in the shop that are good for this... you can find some of them here and a bunch more here!!

And for the Shadow Card itself, the wow is on the inside!  This card is so cool because it lays flat when it's closed but then you get this great pop up shadow box when you open it!  I used papers from the Authentique Charmed paper pad that I purchased last year... you may still be able to find one... if you do, pick it up because it's fantastic!

I started with the Lucky To Know You Overlay... I resized it so that it would fit inside my scalloped die cut background.  I got super lucky that it fit inside the stitched frame as well!  It gave me plenty of room to add some wider popup tape to create a shaker!

I used a few dies from my stash as well to decorate using "lucky" as the theme... and lots of sequins from my stash from all kinds of places!

Another cool thing about this Shadow Card File is the window pieces also come in a Circle shape (which has cool circle shaped sentiment frames!) and a heart shape.  So many possibilities!  Perfect to add a shaker on the inside if you wanted!  There is a fantastic video that you should watch before you start... so helpful and made this quite easy to put together.  You can find that at the bottom of the page where you'll find this file... right here!

I used a sweet sentiment from the Authentique paper pad... perfect wish to send to a friend that you are Lucky To Know.

And a view so you can see the depth this adds!  I can't wait to see what you create using this file!

I'm playing along over at Simon Says Stamp's Work it Wednesday... it's all about Green and Gold!  I've got that covered!  And I'm also linking up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is No Stamps Allowed... I didn't use any... not one!  I'm also playing along with the Doodles Paper Playground #showmeyourshaker contest on Instagram!  You can find info about the contest on their blog here!

That's me for today!  Be sure to head on over to the Cutting Cafe Blog to see what my teamies have created for you today and comment there for your chance to win one of three files of your choice!  And please be sure to tag me should you use this file so I can see how you use it!

Thanks so much for visiting today and I hope to see you again soon!
