To build the shadow box, you can find the tutorial I followed here. Please see sketch for the exact size of my box and number of pieces needed.
Cut a piece of white cardstock 6 1/2” x 6 1/2” for back of shadow box and a matching piece of your favorite patterned paper design. Glue patterned paper to cardstock, glue frame to cardstock. Cut 4 pieces of patterned paper to match sides of shadow box, score and glue to frame as pictured.
Cut Royale Gateway from white cardstock. Cut two pieces of clear transparency to match the side panels on the gate making sure to add 1/4” on one side and bottom, score at 1/4” and fold. Glue these pieces to either side of the box, glue gate to transparency panels, this will make your gate sturdier.
Stamp leaves and flowers on deluxe flower shaping paper, cut with coordinating dies. Color as desired, shape Clematis flowers and leaves with coordinating 3D shaping mold. Shape wisteria petals with flower shaping kit. Add flower stamens to clematis, for mine I colored them with a yellow alcohol marker.
Stamp birdhouse image 3 time on white cardstock with Watering Can Archival ink, cut with coordinating die. Stamp birds on white cardstock with same ink and cut with coordinating die. Color images with Prismacolor Color pencils. For my birdhouse I gave it more dimension by layering the birdhouse and some of the flowers with foam dots.
Glue birdhouse to gate with foam dots, glue leaves and flowers making the corner arrangements as pictured. Glue little birds. Add glitter to flower petals. Add mini prills to centers of small wisteria flowers.
