Make It Monday: Shadowbox Snowman Card

I love dimensional cards! They add an unexpected wow factor for the recipient. Two of my favorite dimensional fun folds are the bridge-fold and the shadowbox. For this week's Make It Monday, I used the Winter Woods and Snowman Season bundles to make this adorable winter scene. And, yes, you can mail this card! Just push the winter scene to one side to lay flat. :-)

I'll be showcasing projects you can make for the Christmas holiday season thru 12/16/19.  Join my email newsletter and receive an exclusive printable PDF tutorial of these projects in your inbox each week!


The card folds opens out to show the sentiment inside. 


Inside is a sweet snowy sentiment.
