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.
