This is another first for me. I have never tried to make a shadow box card before, and as you all know, this is my month for trying new techniques, so here is my first shadow box. I do like them, and I am really liking all of the new things that I have recently tried with my cards. I think I will have to attempt these new things more often instead of always feeling so intimidated by them.
I do like the look of this, and this is one of my favorite Christmas images that I own, so you will see this one again a few more times from me. I was considering giving this one to my Dad for Christmas, but I am not sure that bow would be considered in any way ok on a masculine card. I will have to think about this one before the holidays get here.
I hope that you enjoyed your visit and a look at my first shadow box card. I also hope that you are being inspired to try new things as you visit me and see that they really are not all that bad to give a try. Thanks for coming in for a look today, and I hope you will drop me a line and let me know what you think of another one of my firsts.
Have a wonderful summer day, because before you know it, the Christmas in July days will be gone, and Christmas, along with the cold weather will be quickly approaching us once again!!
