This is a 6" square shadow box. As you know, I love to create shadow box cards and these two cardinals seemed perfect for this type of card. Green design paper was attached to both the top and inside of the box. Spellbinder "Beaded Ovals" die was used to create the opening in the top. A green marker was used to outline each of the scallops to give it a finished appearance. The same Beaded Oval was used for the inside of the card. The Heartfelt Creations "Rustic Bridge (684E)" was stamped on the Oval and colored with Copic Markers. Pink Flower Soft was added to the trees. (I added the pink Flower Soft to create the feeling that those are the flowering trees the birds are really sitting in.)
Both cardinals from the "HCPC 3388 Spring Cardinals PreCut Set" were stamped, colored with Copic Markers and cut out with scissors. Additional cardinals and posy flowers were stamped, colored, and cut out with matching dies, then attached with dimensional dots. Soft Yellow Flower Soft was added to the center of each flower. Spellbinders corners from the "Parisian Motifs" dies were added. The side borders were created with the Martha Stewart "String Lace" punch.
All products used on this card, including all the new Heartfelt Creations stamp sets, can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
