Shadowbox Photo Composition


One of the Christmas gifts that I made and couldn't post before Christmas is this shadowbox photo composition. It was a lot of fun to make. J&K went to Paris on their honeymoon and this picture of them in front of the Eiffel Tower is great.
I stamped the inside frame with a Stamping Up French writing stamp (of which I have no clue what it says but am sure one of the words is amore). I found the basket, tree, and bench with the love birds at Hobby Lobby. I couldn't believe it when I found the photographer figurine and the basket with the French bread which tied the theme in place. I made a faux cobblestone street for the inside bottom and the rest is history.

I cam over from A Redeemed Sheep and just love all your cards. I just started stamping last year. I see a lot of inspiration here!

What a great idea and it looks so darn adorable! I made a shadow box display for my son's diploma, tassel and his picture. It was cute, but not as cute as what you have made.
Hugs, Leslie

This is wonderful! I purchased a shadow box to do something similar and the fear of failure is holding me back. This really is wonderful!
