Partial Die Cutting

This is another way to use your framelits dies and give live to a minimalistic project with dimension a fun folding and a striking background.  You can do it!

Shadow Box Card

After making the card above,  I decided to try to go a little bit further and I made a shadow box card which is very trendy nowadays.

The card folded flat  measures 5"x 6 -7/8" inches ( 17.5 x 12.9 cm).   3D measures : Height: 5", Width: 5-1/4", Deep 1-1/2" (12.7 x 13.4 x 4 cm)

you can add a LED battery operated tea light

Boom!! isn't it cool?
