Taught my first Shadow Box Card class!

Last post, I showed you the first shadow box card I ever made. That was experimentation to figure out the dimensions to use for a shadow box card class. In class, we made two "versions". Both cards are the same size and orientation. However, one has an inside full panel, like the anniversary card I made (except the anniversary card had 2 inside panels). One has a shaped "wall" inside, instead of a whole panel.

Here's the paneled one.
I was going to put a cupcake inside - and I may still make that variant, but when I was leafing through my stamps, I found my trusty monster. I really love this guy! Since he was holding a balloon, it went well with this card! I coloured him with my alcohol markers.

So, the balloons are out front, with their twine strings, the gifts are in the middle layer and the monster is in the back.
And, since it was July when we had the class, it was time to start on the holiday cards! So, here's the shadow box card I made with a partial wall, instead of a whole panel for the middle layer:
I also bought a cheapo paint brush to do the snow speckling more cleanly (for my fingers) than the toothbrush method.
I love the look of the silver glitter trees! You can see the hill in the middle is the half panel and the house was stamped, cut out, and placed on the back wall of the card.

I especially like that these fold flat for mailing!
Do you have a favourite type of 3D handmade card? What is it?
