Butterfly Basics Shadow Box Frame Card

Created by Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa 010

Here is another Shadow Box Frame Card I made.

This time I have completely and unashamedly CASED my upline, Julie Kettlewell’s stunning card… Well you trying looking at this one and not wanting to make it!

And oh…  I can now confirm that the Butterflies Framelits have finally landed back in the UK!! So you can now buy the Bundles again…. 

But do also remember that these fabulous Something Borrowed papers are only available until 2nd June! These have definitely been an all-time favourite of mine – time to stock up!

Just 3 differences to Julie’s…. 

Firstly I used Blackberry Bliss & Sahara Sand (whereas Julie used Early Espresso & Sahara Sand).

Secondly – I used my Box Frame method which means it is “boxed/sealed” all the way round. I have definitely got into the groove with these….

And thirdly – a Rich Razzleberry button from the Brights Collection button pot to give an extra pop of colour

And here it is – ready in a box for handing over….

This is a 1” deep box – but I realised that a 3/4” deep box means that it can be used for the large letter postage scale in the UK – whereas the deeper box (which does look better!!) has to be hand delivered – or pay the price for a small parcel…
