Card Creating Tuesday

Hello, and welcome to another design team post for My Cricut Craft Room! Today we were instructed to create a card with a window. I decided to make a shadowbox card. There are many tutorials on Youtube for you to see exactly how the base card is constructed. I feel as though it would be easier for you to watch how to do it, than for me to fumble with words trying to explain it. If you need help, you can use this link. I by no means am telling you you need Stampin Up! products to do this. You don't. :) Use whatever you have at home.

Scallop Square from CCR Basics cut at 4.236
Background 4 from Spring Holiday Cards cut at 2.875
Castle, and castle layer from Birthday Cakes cut at 2.722
Wand, from Birthday Cakes cut at 3.056

Weld the background 4 shape onto one of the scalloped squares to form the "window." You could do this with a regular card too, and pop the window part up to make it stand out. Next, I layered the castle pieces together and adhered it to the base using foam tape. After I adhered the princess wand, I added glitter to it. I used some yarn to tie a bow, and the card is essentially finished. You could add a sentiment if you want, or embellish it further. Hope you liked today's project.
