Shadow Box Card

I wanted to make an unusual card for my friend's birthday and found this style card on line at:

Here are direction:

Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 4" x 7'

Cut a 2 1/2" circle from the middle of one of the 4" x 7" pieces

Stamp an image on watercolor paper

Cut 2 1/2" circle from the stamped image

Color the image
Use whatever color method, for this I used my new inktense pencils by Derwent.

Score both 4" x 7" pieces of cardstock at 1" and 1/2" from both sides (in that order)
                      Should be like this 1"/1/2"/4"/1/2"/1"

Glue circle image to middle of the uncut piece

Glue both 4" x 7" pieces together and embellish
Fold on score lines

Two flowers were made using the Cuttlebug Quill Kits, Recollections Silver glue and Flower Soft was also used to finish off this card.
