Hello, friends! Today I’m excited to join the Spellbinders blog hop celebrating the launch of Shadowbox collection by Becca Feeken. I’ve been a long time fan of Becca and her genius designs for layered dimensional cards.
Becca’s latest collection is called Shadowbox is it perfect for all things 3D and also idea to make boxes for those dimensional handmade cards. Win-win! This collection also coordinates with the Elegant 3D Vignettes one released in 2018.

While these types of projects is not something I do often as I mostly gravitate towards the Clean & Simple style, Spellbinders dies and layered cards were the first things I have tried in my cardmaking journey. I still very much love and enjoy this style, I just don’t create in it as often.
Today I have a sweet shadowbox to share with you. When I was making it I envisioned it as a piece of home decor, something to put on your desk or hang on a wall, perhaps. It was just when I had re-arranged my IKEA Pegboard and was thinking that I need some sort of handmade decor piece to go on the board to pretty it up.
The size of this shadowbox is 5″ x 5″ x 3/4″. With the Shadowbox collection you are the boss of size and can make your box any size you like (the depth can be 1/2″, 3/4″ or 1″). The dies to make shadowboxes are a little tricky to figure out, but there are video tutorials available that will show you how to put them together (here’s also a great one by my friend Kathleen). Once you’ve made your first box it will be very easy to make them again.
I used plain white cardstock for the box itself. I backed it up with pretty pink paper and decorated with some die-cut butterflies and flowers. Both were made using dies from the Shadowbox collection. The butterflies were die-cut from Journey Brush Gold cardstock and the flowers were die-cut from foamiran, colored with Copic markers and shaped with a heat tool.
I also added a little “With Love” banner and this was created using the Spellbinders February 2019 Glimmer Kit of the Month and Matte Gold Foil. In case you haven’t see the new Glimmer kit – do check it out, it’s one of those must have kits! Btw, another sentiment set like this is coming soon from Spellbinders.
