VALENTINE SHADOW BOX COLLAGE

I created this Valentine shadow box collage over the weekend. I liked the way it turned out so much that I'm making more as gifts for friends. I found the 8 x 10 shadow boxes at my local craft store in a 3-pack for $9.00. The Petty In Pink cardstock that each square is adhered to measures 6" x 8", and each square measures 1 3/4" x 1 3/4". I used many different designer papers, stamps, punches, and embellishments with a color scheme of Pretty In Pink, Real Red, Whisper White, and Basic Black. All products are Stampin' Up!.

Cookie said...

What craft store do you shop at? I love this..Love the xmas one too.I saw that at xmas time........

Kathy Mc said...

Nancy, what a beautiful Valentine collage! That would definitely brighten anyone's home. Love the different DSPs and punches you used to create such a fabulous piece of art. Also curious about the craft store you found shadow boxes at such a good price (if you could please email me I'd appreciate it). Checked our local Joann store, and it was way more expensive for just one. Thanks and happy to see you're squeezing in some stamping/creating time for yourself again!
