Robin's Nest Cards in amazing fabulous shades of blue


Today I am sharing a great mix of cards in shades of blue. These are just a few amazing paper lines from the Robin's Nest collections. For this card I am making a smaller version of a shadow box.
And for an added bonus today be sure to check out the extra cross promo project with ScraPerfect.

Supply List:
The Robin's Nest Products
Other: ribbon, card base

Instructions:
1. I cut the circular back base piece the same size as the front piece.
2. On the front piece however I cut and added a cardstock base piece for layered look and to have a colour change between layers.


3. I used a roll of strip foam and placed the strips on the backside of the upper front section.


4. I went with another paper lay in the stripes to add more colour.
5. Glue down the shadow box circular piece on the base. 
6. Now glue down the front foamed pop up piece centred over the circular piece.
7. I made the sentiment and matted it for more colour and layers.


8. For more colour contrast I added yet another shade of blue accent using ribbon on the left side.

The next card was very easy but was accented by using matted white border with added ribbon.
