Shadow Box Card !

After watching Jennifer McGuire's video on making shadow box cards, I was desperate to have a go and after seeing the new "You Sleigh Me" challenge over at "The Christmas Kickstart Challenge Blog " I knew it would be a perfect subject for my card.

I haven't got any Christmas sleigh stamps so I found a free digital one online and printed and coloured it with Zig markers, adding some Nuvo glimmer paste for extra sparkle..  I then created my card front and back as in the video and decided to stick my extra card panel to the front, that way I could emboss it with the Tim Holtz Icy Frame folder.

Next I created the backdrop using a handmade cloud stencil and some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink,  The snowy scene is all die cuts.

I then added the gems and , glued the back to the front, the sleigh on the acetate moves really well when you shake the card.


I had a lot of fun making this and will definitely be making more!

Sorry about the long post.
