The Greetery: Christmas Shadow Box

Hi there! I have a project up on The Greetery Blog today and wanted to share it here on my own blog as well. I have been loving all of the shadow boxes I've been seeing made with stamps and die cuts, so  I wanted to try one for myself using some of the beautiful new Christmas products from The Greetery.

I used the Christmas Eve stamp set, the Fir And Foliage stamp set,  the Speed Tagging Christmas Sentiments and The With Love At Christmas stamp set. These images really lend themselves to creating fun scenes for a shadow box. 

My shadow box measures 4.5 inches wide and 4.25 inches tall. You can make them any size, but I wanted one large enough to fit the taller trees and church.  This card folds flat, but  will not fit in a standard A2 size envelope.  I plan on making one to fit with my envelope punch board. 

I used the Drifting die to cut the hills inside the box and I also added one across the front of the bottom of the box. For the background, I used the Frosty Flakes Stencils and watercolor.  I also added  the snowflakes in the front corner cut with the Frosty Corner dies. I love how the Merry Christmas border from the Christmas Eve stamp set fit perfectly across the top!

I hope you have enjoyed my project! All of the products I have used for this project are linked below!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Oh my, Kay! This is beautiful. It's like a page from a vintage story book. Look at all the spectacular detail. The scene is wonderful and the details on the edges of the shadow box are amazing. LOVE this!!

  2. I enjoyed your project very much Kay! What a treat it will be when the recipient opens the envelope!

  3. This is really pretty. I have all of these components from the Greetery and I am loving them so much. It has inspired me to try one of these, thanks Kay...

  4. "All is calm, All is bright"...makes me sing inside my head. lol Beautiful Christmas creation Kay! I love it! This will be so pretty sitting out for decor! Who needs Hobby Lobby?! lol

  5. Hi Kay, Oh my goodness- what happened to my comment on this BEAUTY! I stopped by to take another look, because it’s stayed in my mind, and no comment from me? I’m sorry about that. I’ve studied your Shadow box many times, then headed over to You Tube for some help, as I’ve never made one before. Not only is this my favorite, it may be be my favorite Christmas card of the season. It is AMAZING! ( I’m not sure I could part with it). I LOVE this! 😊👏❤️


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! I read and appreciate each and every one so much! Hugs :)
