Feminine Fridays Week #11

I've always wanted to try the Origami Shadow Box so I created this one for my World Card Making Event last weekend. I was quite happy with the "it's easier than it looks" response. You start with a piece of 4x4 double sided designer paper. Fold in half, open it, fold in half the other way. This will give you a center. Make a cross in the center with a pen. Then take a corner and fold to your marking. Do this to all corners. Once that's done bring the tips to the fold of the outer edge. You have to make sure that your folds are perfectly straight otherwise your folds with not meet evenly.  Don't forget to use your Bone Folder to get crisp clean lines.

The stamp set used is Charming, the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The colors are Perfect Plum and Whisper White. On the Whisper White the image was stamped fully inked then stamped again before adding more ink. The punches used inside the frame are the 1 1/4" in Whisper White  and 1 3/8" in Perfect Plum.  For the sentiment the Modern Label Punch in Perfect Plum and the Word Window in Whisper White. Added a little bling from the Rhinestone Jewels.

On the inside a Whisper White layer was added and stamped in Perfect Plum using the same flower from inside the frame on the front. The corners were rounded with the Small Corner 3/16" Punch.

And now for Regina's Mission: Create using Designer Series Paper, current or otherwise, as the focal point.

In  the meantime make sure you drop by Regina's Blog to see what she has been up to this last week. She made some very thoughtful and caring cards for her parents.

Before I leave you for today, here's a pic of Frankii

He's changed his position from the tailgate to the tree. He's determined to have that squirrel play with him. He spent the afternoon here yesterday and by afternoon I mean ALL afternoon.

See ya next week!

Beautiful card, Julie!!! It's so perfect for smaller images and a great way to show off designer paper! I'm excited about the mission outlined by you!!!!! Love the picture of Frankii . . . I guess he has figured out that squirrels are quite fast, and he might lose too much time jumping from the tailgate. He might want to try an acorn costume. Ha!
