This card features Ornate Floral Frame and I paired it up with Grumpy Georgia from Sweet November Stamps. I kept the majority of the card white to feature this elegant frame but also experimented with a new shadow box design.
This was my first attempt at making this type of shadow box and the sides are actually designed to be folded in so it will fit into an envelop. I made a few mistakes along the way but finally came up with the right measurements. Below you can see how it collapses and you can also see the pop-up details on the flowers.
Your next stop is on to BECCY for a fabulous card! However, before you go, don't forget to collect your hidden puzzle piece from my FIRST card!

Did you know? Decoupage (or découpage) is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf and so on. Commonly an object like a small box or an item of furniture is covered by cutouts from magazines or from purpose-manufactured papers. Each layer is sealed with varnishes (often multiple coats) until the "stuck on" appearance disappears and the result looks like painting or inlay work. The traditional technique used 30-40 layers of varnish which were then sanded to a polished finish. This was known in 18th century England as The Art of Japanning after its presumed origins.
