Christmas Box Card

after watching a video by Jennifer McGuire on how to make shadow box cards and thought it would be fun to make a little Christmas scene.  I have used various stamps and dies, the little penguins are by Heffy Doodle and the reindeer by Clearly Besotted.  I have stamped and water coloured with my Zig brush markers then die cut.  The background uses a really old house and tree die from Memory Box. the sky and clouds in the background use distress oxide inks and a stencil i made myself.


This card folds flat for putting in the envelope but pops up nicely when you stand it .  The video was so easy to follow and I am really pleased with the results, I am sure I will be making more like this.

I am adding this card to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes" and the Die Cut Divas Challenge "Watercolouring".

I am off to my daughters for a few days for a visit , I am really looking to playing with my little granddaughter Eva. Enjoy the rest of your week.
