Autumn Days~

This week all the of the DCWV designers are teaming up with Scor-Pal. Yippee!!

So, I got out my Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape and decided to tackle something I’ve been wanting to try for a while now… a shadow box!

And I will be the first to admit that I was a bit scared of this cut especially after I first opened Lori Whitlock’s image.

But, her instructions were easy and simple to follow.

And the weight of the DCWV paper was perfect for this project.

I chose the wood grain paper from the Autumn Melody stack for the boxes and outer edges.

The box cuts~

You can easily see the score lines that were pre-cut.

I lightly went over them with my Scor-Pal tool.

The boxes ready to be attached to the base~

I used Scor-Tape to adhere my boxes rather than glue.

I find that I’m a bit slow and heavy handed to use glue, so Scor-Tape was a great choice.

It’s strong enough to hold all the pieces together, and I can control exactly where it goes.

My completed shadow box~

A few pictures and embellishments completed my shadow box.

I was SO happy with how this turned out that I actually did a happy dance.

  1. Gorgeous! Your paper choices are perfect for both a construction and aesthetic perspective. Isn’t Lori Whitlock amazing?

    Love what you did here and the use of Scor Tape (awesome stuff) is a great idea! I’d be doing the happy dance too if I completed something as terrific as this!
