How To Make a Shadowbox Valentines Set - DIY Tutorial

Todays I'd like to share a Valentine's gift set created using a combination of my favorite products - Spellbinders dies, Maja Design papers and embellishing accents from Creative Embellishments
  My gift card set  has two elements, a decorative shadow box frame and a matching card.  The shadowbox frame was created with a cool new die from Spellbinders and Becca Feeken -   Spellbinders Adjustable Shadowbox Frame 1/2 inch - Becca Feeken. 

Watch Becca Feeken's Video Tutorial...
 If you scroll down, I added a link to Becca Feeken's video tutorial on YouTube.  
The coolest thing about these frames is that they are totally adjustable and can be made in any size you desire.    

I paired the dies with the gorgeous raspberry pinks in the Maja Design Summertime collection . Below is a look at the papers I used for the Shadowbox.

The beautiful flirty bicycle image is from the die cut sheet in the Summertime collection.  

See those darling wood veneer hearts?  Those are from Creative Embellishments wood veneer hearts and I simply adore them because they are "conversation hearts" that I turn backwards so they become "all occasion" hearts.  

The flowers were custom made using another Spellbinders die, Spellbinders Cinch and Go IV Shadowbox (Flowers) by Becca Feeken - 
to customize and perfectly coordinate my project.

Next I made a matching card to accompany the Shadowbox Valentine.  
The card was made using the following Maja Design Summertime papers and the delicate Spellbinders Lace Hearts die.  Yes it's a very simple card and still graceful.
