INTRODUCING SHADOWBOX VIGNETTES BLOG HOP


3D Depth and Dimension are the order of the day!  Hi there, today we are sharing with you a great new collection by Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace with a blog hop featuring Shadowbox Vignettes.  It is a followup to her popular 3D Vignettes and at the core of the collection are a set of Shadowbox Frames that will allow you to make a frame any size you can furnish the paper for that sports a face that is 1/2", 3/4" or 1"

Whether you are hanging your kids' artwork on the fridge with a lightweight frame changed out every season or if you are sending your glorious dimensional cards is a frame with a lid - there are so many ways to use these Shadowbox Vignettes dies.  In fact, we think they are a great addition to your crafting toolbox.  If you've looked at the die and cannot quite imagine how it goes together, well never fear, there is a video for that and I'll show it at the end of my post.  The video has extra 3D inspired projects not seen here, so be sure to have a peek or even fast forward to the end.

About 3D Shadowbox Vignettes

Layered Die sets were introduced with 3D Vignettes and people quickly realized you could use them standing alone in cards or you could use them layered together in a diorama.  Shadowbox Vignettes continues the tradition and as you might guess, the layering sets can be used in both Shadowbox Vignettes and 3D Vignettes.  In addition to the 3 core adjustable frames and the four layering sets, Becca has designed a host of embellishments sized to fit your frames as well as your standalone cards.  We're particularly tickled by the easel (necessary to stand a shadowbox frame on a desk) that also transforms into a pocket or a basket.



I made this to have a decorative frame in the front to display and the card attached to the back. So it's a gift and card in one. These Shadowbox Dies are simply AMAZING!! So fun to make them! And so easy too! (See Video at end of Post!)


This Die Set is so beautiful! I love how it frames the shadowbox so beautifully. Gives a project such amazing dimension.


This is what the Dies actually look like.

Second up is S4-987 Flutter Wing Shadowbox Butterflies


These butterflies are drop dead gorgeous!! Perfect for a shadowbox, card or layout.


I simply die cut 2 butterflies out in 2 shades of pink and layered them over one another. I then added the body in gold to give it some glimmer.


This is what these Dies look like.

And last but not least, Next up is, S4-986 Filigree Shadowbox Easel and Pocket


I made a simple and quick, Gift Card Holder with the Adoria Square and Filigree Easel and Pocket Dies. This could also be a great place card setting as well.


I simply die cut the Adoria Square Die and folded it in half. I then cut off 2 of the swirls on either side to make it cleaner. I then adhered the Filigree Pocket to the front to act as a holder for the little note and gift card.

This is what that Die looks like.

Thanks for another great way to stand up the shadow box! In fact, seeing that, I bet if the box were the same size as a decorative die, it could be used in the same way... gonna hafta try it!! OH...
