White Embossed Shadow Box Display By Jennifer Evans

(Supplies – Textured Cardstock: Momenta PA 1036; Punches: Punch Bunch (starburst), Marvy Uchida (flower), EK Success (large butterfly and small butterfly), and Martha Stewart (medium butterfly); Rhinestones: Momenta Black & White ST-3056; Embossing Folders: Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Folder by Sizzix & Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug; Other: 8×8 Shadow box frame, Texture Boutique by Sizzix, doily, & spray paint Instructions)

Cut an 8×8 sheet of white textured paper (save your scraps).Use that for your background paper.

Cut another 8×8 sheet of white textured paper and then cut the 8×8 sheet into four pieces (2 4×5 ½” and 2 4×2 ½”).

Run all four pieces through your embossing machine using a distress embossing folder by Sizzix.

Glue all onto the full sheet of 8×8 cardstock. Glue your doily on the 8×8 embossed papers about 4” from the top and 3” from the right.

Use black spray paint on your page by lightly pressing the nozzle to get drizzles and drips instead of a spray. Let it drip on the lower part of the page.

Tilt your wallet size photo to the right about 2” from left and 3” from the bottom of the page.

Glue into place.

To create the flower, follow Tim Holtz’ directions from his website on how make his grunge board flower.

For this one use with the white cardstock scraps and a flower punch.

Use hot glue to place it at the bottom right hand corner of the photo.

To create the starburst embellishments, punch three starbursts from your scraps.

ut a small slice half way into the circle. Make a cone and glue in place.

Use hot glue to a small butterfly and place on the seam. Glue all three cones in place.

To create the large butterfly, run a scrap piece of paper through your embossing machine and a swiss dot embossing folder.

Punch a medium butterfly from the embossed cardstock. Punch a large butterfly and fold the wings up a little.

Glue the medium butterfly in the middle of the large one and fold the wings of the medium butterfly up a little.

Place some rhinestones randomly on the large spray paint dots.

Put the 8×8 page in a shadow box. Remove the glass so that your art can be seen!
