Paper Sculptures

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Recently I purchased the Cricut March Digital Mystery Box and have enjoyed playing with some of the images this week. I am loving the 3D SVG images from Dreaming Tree. Today I am sharing my projects.

The design is for a 12" x 12" shadowbox. I had two 9" x 9" white shadow boxes which I purchased last year just because they were on sale! Does anyone else do that?? Well, they were still being unused so I sized the images to fit in the 9" x  9" boxes. I used Colorbok white paper and of course, I had to have some pink! Craft Smith Wedding Neutrals pink paper is used for the background. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Dreaming Tree Springtime Gifts - Butterfly Paper Sculpture is cut  26.54"wide x 8.25" high.
Also from the same digital cartridge - Hummingbird Paper Sculpture is cut 28.592" wide x 8.25".

For the 3D effect, the project requires the use of pop-dots (foam pads). I also added some pink gemstones. I will hang these in my craft room. These projects would make awesome gifts too.

The projects go together pretty quickly. But trying to take a decent photo to share turned out to be a big deal! The photo does not capture all the 3D effects.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for your visits and comments!
