Another Accucut Shadowbox

I just finished another Accucut "Mother" shadowbox, this time for my SIL's birthday next week. The photo is of my MIL when she was about 6 or 7 years old. This version uses glitter papers from My Mind's Eye Laundry Line, paint, stamps, ribbon, quotes, pearls and a satin ribbon flower.

This shows the Accucut die which my friend, Vicki Chrisman, designed. There are both portrait and landscape versions. It is very versatile as you can cut it from chipboard to make the trifold standing shadowbox frame as I have done, or you can cut it from cardstock and fold it into a card. The smaller pieces can be used as embellishments, frames or even closures.
If your LSS doesn't have this die, you can purchase packages of pre-cut shapes from Crafty Secrets online. Vicki also has a great video HERE on her blog showing the assembly. This is a fun project to create!
