Heartfelt Creations...Shadow Box Wedding

Good morning crafty friends! Today I'm showing you a Shadow box that I made for Heartfelt Creations using a wedding theme. As you can probably tell, I'm a neutrals kind of gal when it comes to this kinda are my definite go-to colors. I added lots of book print flowers, flourishes and Heartfelt Creations' beautiful die cuts. Here are quite a few pictures showing various close-ups and the whole project:

Shadow box instructions: (you'd better grab a cuppa joe~)

Cut designer paper to 8" X 10". Adhere doily to top right corner, ephemera die cut on top of that and then the photo. Add white lace and then slightly overlap black lace over it. Die cut the Bella Rose shapes in both black and cream card stock. While the cream card stock is still in the die, sponge exposed areas. Adhere them to base. Cut out all sizes of Daisy Patch dies from old book print pages. I stacked the pages because they were thin, you'll need about 12 of each shape. Assemble flowers in a descending order, pulling up the edges gently for dimension. Add pearls to the middles. Adhere to Bella Rose die cuts. Add gem flourishes. Punch antique brad through paper and anchor. Sponge a chipboard heart with Walnut Stain distress ink, spray with adhesive glue and add glitter. Sew a piece of pom-pom trim across the center and add twine adorned button. Stamp sentiment onto Labels Eighteen die cut, sponge edges and shadow stamp small design from the Palace Entry PreCut set. Adhere to lower left corner with dimensionals. Lastly add pearl stems from behind the daisies.
