This is a very simple card to make, but has high impact with all the little dimensional details and the shadowbox effect created using Spellbinder Dies.  It truly reminds me of an old postcard but with lots more yummy colors!

To create this effect, Cut your background paper to the size of card.  Mine is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".
Now use your spellbinder die to cut the center out of your background. 
For stability while cutting, use a little repositionable tape to hold your die directly in the center of your paper.  Now once cut, you want to use the negative, open space that is left over. 
Make sure to place whatever image you want underneath first.  Then adhere your negative with pop dots over top.  And now just embellish.   This allows for a lot of dimension while decorating!

WOW! I've had Boardwalk in my papers for a while and never been really inspired to use it - until now! I love the 3D effect. I want to just walk off into this card.

So clever and wonderfully dimensional.
