For tips on creating the shadow box and fold out cards check out this video.

Instructions: Begin by assembling your shadow box, selecting a card panel from the paper collection and attach to inside of box. Close and adhere box.  

Die cut Grand Labels beginning with smaller one on the front of the box first and then follow with three larger sizes on paper from the collection measuring 8 x 8". Attach these together with foam tape. 

Using Coffee Archival ink, stamp out your images on Neenah cardstock, sunflowers and delightful daisy leaves, Wildwood Florals, classic rose vines, Beary elements, woodsy trees. Stamp bears on Canson water paper.  Die cut all stamped images with their coordinating dies and color. I colored the Wildwood Floral with the Archival ink and the rest of the elements with Distress Ink. The bears were water colored with the Distress inks using a water color pen. 

Poke a hole in all the flowers before molding as this is easier then trying to do this when you have them molded. Mold flowers, leaves, sunflowers and florals using the flower shaping kit. Attach pollens by placing small dab of art institute in center, set aside to dry. Learn how to shape the Classic Sunflowers here

Die cut the wildwood cottage and using a brick embossing folder on top. Lightly go over the raised areas of the embossing with dauber and distress ink. 

Create a stand up accordion fold by cutting a piece of chipboard 3 x 6".  Then cut two pieces of cardstock 3 x 3" and fold one in half, attach to top of back of shadow box and other to chipboard. On second piece, score four times at 3/4".  Fold to create accordion fold, attach one end to chipboard and other to back of shadow box creating a photo stand. 

Adhere all elements to box beginning with the house to determine where the inside of the box details will go. Off set the house a bit on the right. Add leaves and then flowers, detail with Crystal Clear and Alchemy Gold Wax.
