Cape Cod Shadow Box

Shadow box – front view

Today I’m sharing a little shadow box card I made using a brand new stamp set developed by Jenn Shurkus. I’m helping out Jenn as she works to help locally owned businesses in Cape Cod. For more details about this stamp set and the cause it supports, please read the explanation below.

Details about my card

I always enjoy using this shadow box die set and all of the add-ons for lots of different themes. They are easy to use and so much fun.

Looking at the inside right, decorated with a sailboat and anchor
Looking into the shadow box to the left, decorated with a lighthouse

I decorated all sides of the box, although you don’t have to. I liked repeating the waves motif on the outside panels and I cut little elements from the paper to decorate the sides on the inside. The fishing boat, lobster trap, and lobster are all from the Cape Cod stamp set. I will have another post coming up this week with a card using this same set.

The shadow box folds flat to make it easy for mailing.
