Box Frame: My decision was to make the Shadow Box frame into a small display of frames featuring the Chandelier as a focal point.

To achieve this, I grouped the main Shadow Box frame design and enlarged it; sizing it to it’s fullest extent on the Scan N Cut 12 x 12 mat to create the centre frame. Next, I proceeded to cut it and once cutting was completed it placed the card into an 8 x 8 embossing folder that gave me the distressed look. After, I repeated this process with the two side frames by grouping and reducing the size.
I then coloured the frames whilst flat with gold and copper chalk paint.
Once the frames had dried, I assembled them together. Natalie recommends doing this with a combination of red liner tape and wet glue such as a strong PVA or bookbinding glue.
I decided to foil the chandelier onto acetate; to achieve this, I used the Fine We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill nib and gold foil. Be sure to preheat your nib well when working with acetate and foil.
The dancers are cut from the Tattered Lace Glitz and Glam USB 7 and the musical notes and treble clef are pre installed files in the Scan N Cut SDX.
I attached the three frames using 3D foam pads; glued the musical notes into the side frames; placed silver mirri behind the dancers dress and raised the dancing couple onto foam pads. Finally, I inserted micro lights around the frame; then slid the acetate into either side of the large frame to give the domed shape.
