Hi everyone! Here's my Carta Bella Design Team project that's up on their blog today, a patriotic shadow box. I used the Ahoy There paper collection, this was definitely a fun project to make, I love this paper!!
I used the 5 x 7 shadow box by Lori Whitlock; she has an assembly video here. The Good Times sheet from the collection makes a perfect American flag, I just cut out a 4” x 5.25” piece and a 2.5” x 2.75” for the smaller rectangle.
The new matching dies are so fun to use I cut the ship’s wheel from some thin cork. For the anchor I used the 6 x 6 paper pad, I wanted a smaller pattern for it.
