Sweet Holiday Penguins Shadow Box

Did you grab Stacey Yacula's Sweet Holiday Penguins set? I'm still over-the-moon excited
that she'll be designing for MFT and I couldn't stop coloring her inaugural set of penguins.

While surfing through MFTv on YouTube, I saw Steph's video on making a shadow box
card from a Release Class project by Torico. Now I'm not a "paper engineer" type of card
maker, but I had to give it a shot. Torico shared a great pictorial in the Release Class pdf,
but I'm such a visual learner that I decided to follow Steph.

I LOVE how this turned out! I used a piece of the new Candy Land paper for the snowy
 background. The penguins were clear embossed and colored with Zig markers and a
water brush, then cut with the matching Die-namics.

I followed Steph's video--pausing at each step--and constructed the shadow box. I modified
it to add just one step instead of two, and Snow Drifts in the back. The sentiment was stamped
on the background before the box was closed, and finished off with Sparkling Clear snowflakes.

The best part about this shadow box card? It can be folded flat and sent through the mail. It
fits into an A2 sized envelope but you may need to add extra postage because of the thickness.
But it's so worth it--any recipient would love to receive a shadow box card. Especially one
with cute penguins on it!

Visit MFTv on You Tube for more great instructional videos using MFT products.
Thanks for stopping by today!
