Shadow Box Fireplace...

It's my turn to post over at the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Blog and I created this 3D card using the PPPR Shadow Box Card 2 and the Fireplace cutting file. I tweaked the file a little using Cricut Design Space so that the battery-operated tealight would show through the back.

------------------------------------------
There are a bunch of little details that make this card so unique...let's start with the layers that create so much dimension...then I added velum behind the flame so the tealight would light it up (here you can see the opaqueness).
----------------------------------------------------------
Here's the top view...I used a 2-1/2" circle punch to punch a hole in the back so the tealight could fit under and shine through...
---------------------------------------------------
Here's a look at the back of the card...this is where I would write a sentiment!
-------------------------------------------------------
And...this card is made to lay flat for mailing! You would still want to add extra postage so they'll hand-cancel and nothing will get torn.

Thanks for stopping by!

Don't forget to head on over to the PPPR Blog and see what files I used so you can create your own shadow box card!
