EASY Floating (POP-UP) Shadow Box Cards

Hi everyone, last week I showed you how to make these easy Floating Shadow Box Cards.

I have a few of these on my channel already in different designs, but I thought I would revisit it again.

I think this style works well with the cute layering bird stamps.

These cards fold flat and will fit into my bouncy or box envelopes.

You have plenty of space on the back to stamp and write your message.
