The inside of the card...which is the shadow box. 
The shadow box card was in spired by this film HERE 
The card front is cut to fit the shadow box.
 The box front is cut a little lager than the embossing folder, the sides have 1.5cm to allow for the shadow box pop up.

above you see the card opened.


See the smaller size of the Dragonflies


You get see the detailed embossing highlighted with the gliding wax.
Staring from the centre cut out and working out to the sides....bringing layer on layer lets  the wax do it's work.


The sentiment is stamped onto an oval, adhered to the card base with double sided 3D foam tape so it won't get lost with all that yum going on with this card.

I hope I have been able to inspire you today...these cut and emboss folders sure do make crafting a breeze....and more fun!
