Good morning friends. I have a Card/Box Ensemble to share today that I realized I had not shared yet. I’m always amazed at new ways to use the Adjustable Frame dies from the Shadowbox Collection and here I used the frames to fashion a caddy to hold cards. Can I just say it was easy? Or rather, the concept is easy.
Also, Amazing Paper Grace will be kicking off their first Guest Designer on June 1st and showing a new Die of the Month of June 2nd – busy times ahead, I hope you’ll peek in for both of those events. Also, for the last blog hop winner, please scroll down to the bottom of the post :-)
I was on a time crunch back when I made this so I purchased cards and envelopes but in real life – one of my Glimmer borders would be up to the task. With cards in hand, I decided which size frames to make using the 1″ Adjustable Shadowbox Frame and constructed a three-sided frame – leaving one edge open.
I constructed a base, that looks much like a book cover and simply glued the three-sided frames inside with the opening at the top.
Although each frame could simply be closed in with a piece of design paper, I opted for vellum so that you could see a hint of what was behind.
There are definitely more of these sets in my future. I think it’s a lovely way to keep, display and have handy, the little cards we need just for a quick thanks. As always, I have found that friends greatly appreciate this kind of kit as a gift because it’s the kind of thing they don’t buy for themselves.
The winner from the last blog hop is:

I hope you had a lovely Memorial Day and kick off to the summer. I’ve had some wonderful and unexpected blessings come my way last week – so much so that it has really given me so much hope for the future. I’m still displaced but patient. I’ve learned that sometimes it’s not the outcome that is the lesson, it is the journey. Thanks as always for letting me share my creations and musing with you – I really appreciate it!
Becca, this is SO LOVELY! I LOVE what you’ve done with the Shadowbox Frame Die! I JUST got one & have yet to play with it! I’ll HAVE TO go back over your video’s to learn again. I’m EXCITED to make something for a few people! ;) But, what you have made is LOVELY! I LOVE the vellum you used on this! I also LOVE your cards & envelopes & kept telling myself, “I hadn’t seen this die!” That was just with a quick glimpse! LOL But, NOW I am DETERMINED to get one of those border glimmer plates! Just BEAUTIFUL!!!! ;)<3
P.S. THANK YOU for your visit! I DID post my creations in the gallery! ;) HUGS! <3
Thank you for sharing this Becca…I have this die and all these supplies so you know what I’ll be doing this stormy day in KY.. Love everything you do, your talent is so amazing ! Namaste
This is very elegant as always…the vellum is perfect.
That is such a cool card box!! I love it – so creative!! I love the velum so you can sneak a peek at the pretties inside. Brilliant, as usual Becca. Brilliant!
I’m so happy things are turning for the better for you. My heart has been broken for 850 since Oct 10. I keep you in my prayers.
This is really lovely Becca, as always. Congratulations to Katie. Looking forward to the new things to come and hope that you will soon be back at your home.
Love this idea just beautiful as are all your designs
This card makes my heart sing!! Sooooo lovely! I use a simple glue stick to adhere vellum so that the adhesive won’t show through the vellum ^_^
First I am so happy for you and hope the blessings bring you much happiness and, that you also had a nice Memorial Day. Thank you for sharing another beautiful, cleaver design. (I hope the future has a little tutorial on “how to” for us.) Awaiting the DOM with much anticipation – love this idea!!
Always in my prayers. God is in control. The framed gift is incredible. I already bought the 1″ frame die as soon as I could get my hands on it. Haven’t used it yet. But you are always inspiring. TU!
Hi Becca and fellow Designers, laying in hospital after major surgery it was great to see a post from you. The Shadowbox Designs are beautiful, thank you, stylish and elegant. Hopefully once back on my feet and find my mojo I can start to make some more beautiful cards bases on the stylish cards that you create so beautifully.
Thank you, Jan S from Australia
