Sewing Shadow Box Card

This was a blast to make.  A bit on the difficult side but still a really fun project. 

I had purchased a kit from Crafty Secrets to make this card but when it arrived the color of the paper wasn't what I wanted.  It came in browns and black and I will probably use it in the future. For now I decided to make my own.  I traced the pattern onto blue card stock and cut it out by hand. Then I used the same score lines as on the kit to score all my pieces.  It worked pretty well and is certainly different, so all in all I am happy with how it turned out. I'm sure you could adapt this in many ways.

Giving credit where credit is due, the original design was made by Pam Hooten, a very talented gal indeed and I believe there is a die available to cut out the pieces. I came across it some time back but it was somewhere close to $200.00 and I am not sure where I saw it.

Stamps Used:  Material Girl Clear Art Stamps, Oxford Impressions Dress Forms and Corsetry.

Just an idea for you all.  Some additional photos for you:
Have a super super day!
