I have to tell you that so many "firsts" went into this project.
It is my first shadowbox and it is the first time that I tried the
dryer sheet technique that I found on Splitcoaststampers.com.
I cut the base @ 4 1/2 x 11" and added the rectangle window in DS.
Now that I have the saved file, it will be a snap to create another one.
I made this one specifically for the Cooking with Cricut challenge this week:
Anything but a card, and use yellow and polka dots.
This is my design creation in an "outdoors" theme.
The background was stamped and colored with markers.
I added the dryer sheet, trimmed it, and then added white glitter.
It gives it a misty look with a hint of sparkle....cool!
I use the MS branch punch for "brush" and added a mama bear and
two cubs in the foreground.
The Happy Camper sign is from Campin' Critters,
and black polka dots finish off the frame.
I have to say....I really like the 3-D look.
This may end up in our camper when the season starts.
I have the perfect place for it.
