I have wanted to make one of these Origami Shadow Box cards for a long time! (Have I mentioned how much fun it is to be on summer break and have the time to tackle such stamping projects?! *wink*) I used this Origami Shadow Box Tutorial by LeAnne Greff and combined it with items from Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit. I have used that kit over and over again, and still have a lot of paper and self-adhesive die cuts left. You sure get your money's worth with Stampin' Up!'s Simply Scrappin' Kits!

Paper: Sunny Day Simply Scrappin Kit DP, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie CS
Embellishments: Whisper White 5/16" Jumbo Brads
Tools: Modern Label Punch
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

This CAS (Clean And Simple) card also uses self-adhesive die-cuts from the Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit, and sentiment from Chit Chat Rub-Ons. I used Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #24.

This is certainly very 'sunny' and cheerful. I haven't bought a scrappin' kit yet but you may have convinced me! Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink and also linking to the Origami Box Card tutorial!
