Hi everyone, last week I made these beautiful Light Up Shadow Box Cards.

So many of you have been making and sharing your wonderful versions, it’s been lovely to look at them all.

I wanted to use my Daisy Mae kit again and create a special card.

I also turned this into a shaker box, which is optional but it really does look lovely with all the faux snow inside.

I’ve made these shadow boxes before and I also have a deconstructed style, which I used t make this style, which allows you to make any size you like.

Check out my playlist below.

I love this one using the Robins and the birdbath!

MATERIALS USED TO MAKE THESE CARDS

Papercraft Society Kit 12 available here.

Made To Surprise paper pad here.

Rice lights, I’ve changed the link as these selfish sellers have decided to increase the price of the ones I brought, not once but twice since I shared the link, if you want to pay £15.99 that’s your choice, however out of principle I’ve found another seller for you to try, you can choose your colours, you get 14 for £10.99. If the price changes again please let me know and I will find someone else. Check them out here.

Faux Snow available here.

I coloured the images using my Arteza coloured pencils.

I hid the battery pack on the back of the card, you can easily cover it with some pattern paper f you would prefer.
