Winter Shadow Box Card


Happy Sunday and merry almost Christmas!
Four more days! Can you believe it? How in the world did it get here so fast. It's like we went from December 1st to the 21st with nothing in between! I have a little more wrapping to do today, and some baking to do for our Christmas eve party, but other than that, I think I'm ready :) I just love this time of year. 

So in-between the Holiday rushiness, I have managed to get in my craft room a bit. I saw a super neat shadow box card by Lori Whitlock here and I thought, wouldn't it be fun to do that with dies! Oh yeah! So I fiddled and fumbled around until I came up with something I liked. 


I stamped the background with a Hero Arts stamp then built the shadow box up using the stitched dies from Lawn Fawn. I cut three white panels with the largest die and cut the centers out with the smaller descending rectangles. I mounted each of those with foam tape adding the trees on the layer closest to the background, then the snowflake on the next layer up. I added the peace sentiment on the very top layer.  This was a really fun card to create and my mind is off and running with this idea! So many fun things you could do with this!


Supplies:
Stitched Rectangles-Lawn Fawn
Snowy hills border- My Favorite Things
Snowflakes- Taylored Expressions
Peace- Papertrey Ink
Background stamp- Hero Arts

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all are enjoying the holidays!

Hugs,

Kay :)
