Lighthouse shadow box card

Since I saw Jennifer McGuire's Inside Shadow Box Card, I've been working to duplicate her technique.  I watched her video many times to get the technique figured out.  Here is my latest attempt:
Front of card
Inside, showing shadow box
 The inside view shows the 1/2 inch deep shadow box.  The background sky and ocean are made with watercolors on watercolor paper.  The lighthouse and clouds are on the upper layer.  I fussy cut the lighthouse and glued it to the upper layer, after cutting the rectangle with a Hero Arts infinity die.  The foreground around base of lighthouse was added with small stamps of grass and trees.

I stamped the back of card with a fun stamp from Judi Kins.

Shadow box birthday card

With my brother's birthday approaching, I'm always looking for something I haven't sent to him in the past.  I found this technique on Jennifer McGuire's blog: Inside Shadow Box Cards.  Since my brother also lives in the desert (near Death Valley),  I chose a desert scene for this card.
Since this a shadow box card, the inside took a little maneuvering.  Hopefully, my technique will improve when and if I decide to try another of these cards.

Graduation card

I've been admiring cards made with Distress Oxide Ink, so I found a sale and bought a few colors.  On this card, I used Fired Brick, Wild Honey and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks on white card stock.  They do blend nicely and give a lovely matte finish.  The sentiment is 3 stacked die-cuts from an old Provo Craft die.
I  added the black layer and mounted it on a white card base.  This is for a young man graduating from high school.
