After seeing Kathy's gorgeous Mother's Day card . . . and after experiencing serious card envy . . . I decided to make another card for my mother! (I know, I know, I already had a beautiful one made but I just wanted to make mine prettier than Kathy's. After all, I've had such a run of luck in winning all the card contests Kathy and I have engaged in . . . not! lol)
Anyway, here's my over-the-top card:
From the front, with the flash reflecting off the Window Sheet . . .
From the front, without the shiny spot (lol) . . .
From the top . . . (Can you see the "twist"?)
And from the back! Now you can definitely see the difference from my other shadow box cards, can't you?
I added a Whisper White cardstock (cs) piece to the back so that I would have a place to stamp/write a comment! Yah for me! lol
The Whisper White cs is 7" x 4 1/4" and is scored at 3 1/2" along the 7" side. I just glued it directly to the back of the shadow box card. And, yes, the card folds flat for mailing! lol
