I'm Yours Shadow Box

Hello my fellow crafters! Hope whatever part of the world you find yourself you are keeping warm. It has been frigid in my little corner of the universe and I am definitely counting down to those great summer days! I had the opportunity to put together this 5 by 7 shadow box this week, desperately trying to get away from making another card. It was really easy to put together, I was pleasantly surprised. I  enjoy using my silhouette Cameo, wish I could find more time to create with it...:(  The file is a die cut from Lori Whitlock, that can be purchased on her site as an SVG or on the silhouette online store. Not really sure what I am going to do with it. I thought of attaching a card to the back, with a magnet closure. It would make a really nice valentine for my husband. Although it is not the least bit masculine! Hey I tried I put hinges, also die cuts, on the corners of the frame. OK, I'm not done they need some bling! After all bling, roses, red, that's what I'm known for. Hope you find some inspiration in this project to create your own special valentines. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

  1. Sentiment, background heart doilie, cupids, hinges and couples silhouette are all die cuts using my Cameo. I inked the doilie with Tim Holtz walnut stain. The "I'm Yours" sentiment and cupids were coated with zig two way glue and covered with red glitter powder.
  2. Paper from Authentique, Lovely collection
  3. Muse token by Tim Holtz, Forevermore
  4. Metal keys by K and Company
  5. Roses in various sizes and colors by I am Roses
  6. Ribbon and heart beads from my stash
