Wedding Shadowbox | Scrapbooking

Hello friends!  We're bracing for yet another arctic blast here in the northeast, which I am NOT happy about.  It's bringing a snowstorm with it today, and I'm quite frankly just over it.  Yeah, I know.  It's only January.  But still.  Over it.

I hate winter.  I'm 33 going on 90 when the temps dip below 60 degrees.  My whole body just hurts.  UGH.


One good thing about hibernating during these really cold days is that I get a little more time to craft than I do when it's warmer, simply because I make it a point to be outside more often when it's warm.

My friends Angela & Joe got married in October, so it was time to use some of this hibernation to make the shadowbox from their invitation.  If you've followed me for a while, you know I've done one for my sister, my friend Danielle, my friend Jamie, and my friend Erin's sister-in-law.

It's seriously is a shame that everyone's beautiful invitations just get tossed aside after the main event, which is why I started doing this with the invitations I receive.

Plus, it's fun!


Ang's colors were black and champagne, so I got as close as I could to the champagne with bronze.  I sprayed the black background with Heidi Swapp's Color Shine in Bronzer, and used her Color Magic hearts, which I also sprayed in Bronzer.  I used my Cricut to cut out the "H" monogram, using glitter paper, and black for the shadow.  The font is from the "Tie the Knot" cartridge.

Simple, yet elegant.



Congrats, guys!  Love you both!
