Instructions: The ready card base measures 6” by 6”. To create the card base cut 12” by 6” smooth white cardstock and score at 6” on the longer side and fold. For the first mat layer, choose a red pattern paper from the Young at Heart Paper Collection and cut 1/8” smaller on all the sides than the card base. For the second mat layer, choose a 6” by 6” panel from the designer paper collection, trim it to 5 1/2” by 5 1/2”. Distress all four sides of both of the layers using paper distressing tool or a sharp scissors. Adhere both the layers to the card base using foam dots.

Follow the video on creating with Shadow box cards and construct a 4 1/4” x 51/2'' kraft shadow box. Cut the photograph and adhere it with dries clear adhesive in the inside of the shadow box. Cover all the sides with pattern papers from the same collection. To cut the front window use Cut Mat Create 1B Die.

To embellish the cards, Cut 2 tags, distress the edges and add twine. Also cut the image of aeroplane from the paper collection and cut it using its coordinating die. You will also need a single die cut from white cardstock from Window elements die. Cut it across the center and keep aside.

For the Sunflowers, stamp multiple images of sunflowers from Classic Sunflower Cling Stamp Set with dark brown Color Box ink and cut them out using the coordinating die. Color them using Harvest and Pumpkin Spice inks. Shape all the flower petals using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Assemble the flower and glitter them using Crystal Clear Powder.

For leaves, stamp several leaves from Classic Rose Collection with Library Green ink and color them using Fern Green and Olive Green Archival. Shape them using Deluxe Flower shaping kit and glitter them using Crystal Clear Powder.

Once all the elements are ready, adhere distressed tags and white die cut behind the shadow box and glue everything on the right side corner of the card panel as shown. Arrange the flowers, an aeroplane image and finish the card by adding a sentiment from the paper collection.
