Shadow Box Cards

I saw the instructions for making Shadow Box cards in a magazine a while ago and have eventually found time to make two cards using this technique. I altered the dimensions slightly as I wanted to make bigger cards.  The first card is for a friend's birthday next week, using some of the lovely Lavinia stamps.  I used Ink Dusters and ink pads for the background.  The flowers were punched out and used to make a border around the aperture. The sides looked too plain, so I used a border punch to finish off the card.
The Lavinia Stamps Challenge for September is 'Add a Flower'.  You can see all the other beautiful challenge entries here.
UPDATE: My entry to the challenge was picked out as the winner! I now have lots of lovely new Lavinia stamps to play with!  Thank you, Lavinia Stamps, for such a fabulous prize.

As it's our wedding anniversary tomorrow, I made this Shadow Box card for Alan. I resisted the temptation to use blue and white (Bristol Rovers colours) and stayed with the traditional red this year!
