Have you ever watched the Up animated film? It will have you roaring with laughter one moment and grabbing for a box of tissue the next. Up is a heart warming tale truly worth watching. It comes as no surprise to me that Up was named the #1 Animated Film of the year in 2009. Anyway, all that to say that today's Shadow Box Card was inspired by the Up Film.
Do you have a huge selection of stamp sets? Don't be afraid to mix them up and combine them to make something truly original. That's what I did in making today's Shadow Box Card for our Pastor and his lovely wife. By using a combination of Stamp sets, I was able to create a card to celebrate their 20 years of service and to congratulate them on a new adventure. They started our church 20 years ago and are now moving on to a new position, a new adventure.
I love that I was able to say exactly what I wanted to say by combining stamp sets. Scroll to the bottom of the post for a complete list on Card supplies. And watch for a Shadow Box Video Tutorial coming up soon here at Stamping Country. I used an array of beautiful Stampin' Blends to color my balloons.
The Up Film wasn't my only card inspiration. This card sketch by Freshly Made Sketches gave me a jump start for my card front.
