Beautiful Shadow Box Frame Card

Hello friends, I recently made this beautiful Shadow Box Frame Card using supplies from the lastest Papercraft Society Kit 11

Sadly we lost a member of our Mixed-Up Crafters group very suddenly, Sandra had supported me for many years and was an active member of our group and regularly shared her lovely cards with us all. I wanted to make a special card from us all to send to her family and this is what I came up with.

Shadow boxes are lots of fun to make and perfect for any occasion. You can add small gifts inside or turn them into shaker cards.

As these are dimensional cards I would recommend a box envelope to send them in.


Papercraft Society Box 11 available here.


1 piece of 11″ x 11″ cardstock.

Score all 4 sides at 1/2″, 1″, 2″ & 2.1/2 then score 2 opposite sides only at 3.1/2 & 7.1/2 down to the second score line only.

1 piece of 12″ x 6″ card, score along the 12″ side at 6″ for your card base.

1 piece of 3.5/8 x 3.5/8 card for the centre mat layer.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.
