I had so much fun creating this little shadow box that could hold any number of goodies for the season and when it's empty you still have this lovely scene to enjoy.

This box is 6 X 6. Cut one piece of cardstock 8 X 8 and one piece of cardstock at 8 1/16 X 8 1/16. Score both pieces at 1" around all four sides. Glue the bottom piece together and set aside. Now working on the top piece, cut a circle in the middle of the card, then cut out a snowflake and cut off until there is only a short piece left. Glue it so that it makes a grid for the circle cut out. Next take a piece of blue cardstock and cut a circle in it. Place it behind the cut out on the top part of the box and glue the piece of the snowflake between the blue and the white so the cut part is hidden. Cut another piece of blue cardstock to fit the inside bottom part of the box and glue it down. Next I found an image of the sleigh on one of the card fronts and cut it out using the circle die again. Glue this so it is showing behind the circle on the box top. I used hot glue to apply some bling around the circle just to give it a festive look.
I fussy cut the little snowman and ornaments on another card front and glued it to the top of the box. Next stamp the little snowman onto watercolor paper and color using the Zig markers and the iridescent Medium. Once it dried, I glued it to the corner piece and fussy cut a sentiment out of the paper. Stamp, emboss and cut out the trees: add glitter to the front of the trees and then use dimensional tape to adhere to the top of the box. When I embossed the snowflakes, I added some glitter to the embossing powder and then embossed and cut out. I decided where I wanted the snowflakes to go and then used dimensional tape to adhere them.
This is actually the first time I have made a shadow box and I have really enjoyed making and decorating it. Try one for yourself. You will be so pleased you did.
