Happy Birthday To You

 Hello all!!  It's Shadow Box time today!  Recently I have had quite a few emails asking about the Shadow Box Concept so here is a card that was shown last week during the Hochanda shows, but now for a more detailed peek at it!  I started by simply cutting the Birthday Shadow Box base with all the inside cutting edges taped in place.  This gives you a pretty frame for all your boxes and a lovely stitched detail around all the boxes as well.  I mounted foam on the back to raise it to give the boxes dimension.  I cut a piece of coconut white card to use as the backing to my shadow box and embossed it with the Daisy Burst embossing folder and adhered the shadow box over it.  Using the accessory dies that are part of the set, I cut the sentiments in black several times and layered then up for a bit more dimension.  I selected some fun bright colours to cut the balloons, party hats and presents.  I cut the balloons first and added a coat of Cosmic lacquer and allowed them to dry thoroughly.  I added black and white Bakers Twine to all the balloons.  I used the heart balloon in pink and intertwined the string through the Celebrate word and glued it into place sideways in the box.  I took the oval balloons and added mounting foam and adhered them to the top corner, outside the largest box opening and draped the strings along the side.  I glued the Happy Birthday into the largest opening below it.  I cut the party hats in the same colours and added the dots with a black fine tip marker.  I mounted them along one of the longer boxes in a whimsical manner.  The last two opening, I used the present in different colours to fill it.  I completed the card by paper piercing a white mat, bringing in a thin black mat and finishing with another white mat layer.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 1/2" in size.

Don't forget to scroll down to the post below this one to see if your name is one the list of the Festive Collection die winners!  It was posted yesterday afternoon in case you haven't seen it yet!  There are still quite a few dies that need to be claimed!  Don't forget to email me if your name is on the list! All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue.
These shadow box cards are so cute and so much fun, they would bring a smile to anyone's face no matter what the occasion, a keepsake to love and look back on for years to come.

Back to the hospital today for an angiogram to try and sort this short of breath out, I was so releaved to be sent home all be it touch and go I had to promise not to remove the wads of cotton wool Andy had smothered me in !!! Yes I'm very lucky and appreciation doesn't come anywhere close to how I feel but I can't just sit and do nothing, that's just not how I deal with illness.
Congrats to the festive die recipient's enjoy your gift, a couple of our regular ladies which is always nice to see. I think it's time our wonderful friend was nominated for an MBE too for all you give to art, design and a wonderful business woman to boot, let alone all you do for us on a daily basis, no email is left un-read, no question to stupid to be answered, your heart goes out to those in need, and your generosity knows no bounds so for all that Sue, thank you for being you xx

Hi Sue
What a pretty card! I really like this concept and have just bought the Christmas version. I quite like the idea of 'working in miniature'. Lots of the die sets have small dies in them that don't often get used. I will have to go and have a hunt for some extra bits! Best wishes, Anne O

Morning Sue, I have to admit when I first saw the shadow box die I was not sure about it. However having watched your demo on Hochanda I have changed my mind, only to find most of my usual sources have sold out. That will teach me to doubt. This is a great card and can now see so many uses for it. Thank you.

Love Rosemarie X X

Morning Sue, I adore this card, I love the stitched detail around the shadow box openings, I love the embellishments you have used and the balloons look fantastic. I can see lots of uses for this shadow box set, especially using for photos on a layout.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Patricia Howarth said...

Pam, Hahahahaha, you made me chuckle with your comment above. I was definitely doing a 'happy dance', Elaine had text me to let me know that I had won, I was busy cleaning all day and hadn't had chance to look online since first thing in the morning, so it came as a lovely surprise when I got Elaine's text. I was dancing around the kitchen (I was getting tea at the time haha), my hubby's face was a picture. I was thrilled to bits !! Thank you.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good morning all. Sue I love this card, it's so pretty...

I was in two minds about getting the shadow box die sets but after watching the shows on HOCHANDA I've changed my mind. I think the Christmas set will be the first on my list.

I'm going to have a little play session today with gilding flakes and Flake and Glitter glue. I also want to do a little experiment with the glue. If it works, I will be doing a happy dance.

Congrats to the winners from yesterday. I am so fortunate to have won the Christmas Blessings die.

Hi Sue, love the shadow box concept (still have mine from childhood, could never bear to give it away) and was pleased to see this sample on your shows,it looks even better in close-up on the computer.

Congratulations again to all the very lucky winners.

Hello Sue
I made my first shadow die Christmas card this weekend I love the concept and will have to buy the others. Sorry I missed yesterdays blog but my mum is poorly so running back and to her house just had the doctor out to her she has a chest infection not good when you are 89. Thank you Pam I realised today that I always rely on your post to keep me up to date. Congratulations to all the Christmas die winners.

Lorraine Freeman said...

Congratulations to all the die winners, good to see some regulars.
Love today's bright and cheery card. I think the shadow boxes are fab. I always think you are brave to cut so many at a time, I try to do one at a time just in case as I can't afford to replace damaged dies.
Hoping everyone has good news today.
My youngest daughter wants us to go to the Bristol pride event on Saturday. She would also like to go to an evening event but transport and or accommodation is not easy. Obviously if she had realised months ago that would have been easier to arrange.
Sending love n hugs to all of you xxx

What a happy card, Sue, my late Mum (dolls house buff and hobby miniaturist) would have been won over to card making with the shadow boxes - and I'm sorely tempted too!
Not to be won over, lol already there, but to have this die set.
Huge congratulations to all the winners, whether friends or visitors, lovely gifts - and thank you Sue for your generosity yet again.

Tracy Stitt said...

Hi sue.
Love ur card. Love the concept of the shadow boxes very clever and so many possibilities too.

Ladies. Dad will not be coming home and will not be getting anymore drips or blood transfusions he just want to be left now. Fed up getting poked and prodded.
He looks a wee soul today. Even tho he's dying he's still thinking of me and says he'd rather be in the hospital so I said if that's what he wants them that's ok. I said I was just selfish and wanted to have him to myself at home :-(.
It doesn't matter how much he's trying to protect me it's not going to hurt any less when his time comes. I've just asked him when the time comes could he heist try hold on till we get there to say goodbye!! I've never had such a strong emotional roller coaster before finding it difficult to cope with.
Thank you for all ur well wishes and prayers. X
