Lilacs in Shadow Box


Today I have created a shadow box out of a piece of 12 x 12 card stock and filled it with pretty lilacs created with Susan's Garden Notes Lilacs.

I want to give credit to Amanda (The Craft Spa Blog), where I saw this type of shadow box.  Here is the link .  In the bottom of the box I glued in a piece of white card stock that was embossed with the Damask Embossing Folder.  It was glued down before gluing down the sides of the shadow box.  I created two light purple and two dark purple lilac stems and arranged them in the box.  Behind the lilacs I added 8 branches from the Flourishes & Branches die set.  On the top I added purple design paper.  Along the bottom, is a banner label from the Lorna Label PopUp die set. Stickers were used for the sentiment and two purple brads added at each end.  The white flourishes are from the Flourishes & Branches die set. To complete this shadow box, I added two ECD Small Butterfly die cuts.

I have had emails asking about my foot.  It is really slow going.  I am able to put partial weight on my foot and can not do much walking yet.  I will start physical therapy next week.  I am not able to sit with my foot down very long or it gets very swollen and painful.  I am working on my cards in spurts!  I am so happy to be creative again.

So very pretty, Selma! Lilacs are one of my favorites. I have a large bush at the edge of my patio, and every time I walk out there in the spring and smell that heavenly bouquet, I swoon a little.
