Summer By the Sea Shadow Box card

Hi there
I am back from a mini camping break in the Lake District. We didn't have the best weather but it was still lovely to chill out for a few days and the bad weather enabled me to get my swap cards all finished for my Stampin' Up field training day this coming Saturday. The field training is for demonstrators and they tend to take this opportunity to swap cards with each other. This training day is the first one I have been able to attend so I am looking forward to joining in with the card swap. I will show all the cards I receive next week along with the card I made to give out.

My upline Jenny gave instructions on her BLOG for a shadow box card today and I just had to try my first one. You can make 2 of these cards out of just one A4 sheet of cardstock and they even fold flat into a normal C6 envelope.

I had to make my card quite simple in design as I am really busy today. I was supposed to be typing up instructions this morning for my card classes on Thursday and Friday but got distracted when I popped over to Jenny's blog and saw this little box card..........so all your fault Jen.....but thank you for the card ideas lol.
I used the beautiful little girl stamp from "Summer by the Sea" stamp set from Stampin' Up! I love this set of stamps. The cardstock is Pretty in Pink and Elegant Eggplant and I watercoloured the image using SU markers and aqua painter.

Anyway hope you like this card for today.
