Each week we bring you a fantastic free template download and a video tutorial showing you how to decorate your DIY template base! Keep your eyes peeled for more shaped cards and templates in this series!

As you will see in this quick video, I show you how to create a shadow box card blank using our exclusive template download. First things first, scroll down to the bottom of this post and click the link to view a video about how to use printable templates. You can apply the top tips to help you to create a card base. This template only has a few folds, making it ideal for beginners. This is a truly unique design, the way that the card sits is open, making it beautiful for your recipient to display.

I have kept my design fairly simple, with inked pattern paper matts, a focal sentiment topper and co-ordinating paper flowers.
