Prepping for Christmas with Art Impressions New Releases!!

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing two of the new Christmas releases from Art Impressions.
I have a tutorial for my first card, a shadowbox, using

My cards go along perfectly with the new challenge on the Art Impessions blog.

I started by cutting two white pieces of paper measuring 7 3/8" x 4.25"
I scored them at 3/8" and 6/8" in from the left, flipped the paper over and scored the other side at the same measurements.

Next I cut an oval in one of the panels. I used the second largest oval in Spellbinders Large Oval die set.   You can use whatever shape you want.  Just make sure all your images will show. 

Next I stamped, colored and cut out all of the images.

Remove the front panel and adhere the inside images.
Then add all of your images you want on the front.

I flipped the back panel over and added a verse and a place to sign the card.

Glue the front and back panels together where you scored them.

The great part is that this can be somewhat flattened to mail it and then popped back open.

Isn't the dimension you get with this type of card wonderful?!

I hope you enjoy the new sets as much as I do!

Art Impressions and Therm O Web also have a Rafflecopter giveaway...
