Step 1. Take a sheet of black cardstock and cut it in half score each end at ½ inch and 1 inch.
Step 2. Cut an aperture out of one half this will be the front of your shadow box card
2 (2)Step 3. Print 2 mummies from the free CD-ROM from the  Crafter’s Inspiration Magazine 11. Using Spectrum Noirpens colour one entirely black (true black) and lightly shade the other using IG1 and cut them both out.
Step 4. Print the papers from the CD-ROM you wish to use.
Step 5. Adhere the background paper to the base of the card and add sticky pads to both mummies
TIP: add a little glue to sticky pads to give some movability when putting in place.
Step 6. First add the black Mummy to the background and then offset the white mummy so the black one looks like a shadow
Step 7. Add sticky tape to both sides of the base card and attach the front with the aperture on top.
Step 8: Finish the card using the rest of the print outs to decorate.
