Instructions:  Finished size of shadow box is 6 1/4” x 6 1/4”.  Take shadow box base and cut teal patterned paper panels to fit the sides and front as pictured, glue to base.  Cut a scene panel for the inside background of shadowbox, add some glue to top edge of panel and glue to base.  Cut 3 pieces from green cardstock with border dies from Fleur Border set (these pieces will make the little mountains in the scene), shade with green ink and glue to the 3 flaps on the shadowbox base.

Stamp the following images on white cardstock with black ink, 2-campers, yard table-umbrella set, planters, scooter, drink bucket, fire pit, flower border, dog, birds, welcome signs.  Stamp several of the fences, flower plants, flag banners.  Cut all pieces with coordinating dies, color all images with color pencils.

Stamp all flowers and leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping paper with the following inks - Floral Fashionista flowers with pink ink, Cherry Blossom flowers with yellow ink, leaves with Olive green ink.  Cut with coordinating dies, shade flowers with same colors as stamped.  Shade leaves with mowed lawn and twisted citron distress inks.  Shape all flowers and leaves with coordinating 3D shaping molds, finish off shaping with Flower shaping kit.  Add flower stamens to all your flowers.

Create a scene with all your images, glue them to the 3 layers on your shadowbox base, for some of the images I used small foam dots to give them more dimension.  Close shadow box and secure flaps with glue, add a panel of patterned paper to back of shadow box.

Glue banner flags, flower border to front of shadow box, create an arrangement with the flowers and leaves on either side of the banners as pictured.  Glue 2 little birds as pictured.  Add a touch of glitter to flowers.
