Good Sunday morning. Today I’m sharing a festive die cut Christmas shadow box card with you today made using several of the new dies by Rubbernecker Stamps. I used the Window with Pierce, Tree in Oval, Holly, Poinsettia #2 , Stars and Small Birds. I especially like how perfectly the tree fits in the tall window with the bright star on top.
The Window Frame and Tree
- Cut the window frame using red cardstock.
- Hand cut a snow layer using white cardstock deckle scissors.
- Cut the tree portion of the Tree in Oval using green cardstock.
- Apply double stick tape to the lower back of the tall window opening.
- Attach the snow layer to the back of the tall window.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window frame.
- Attach the tree to the back side of the tall window.
- Attach the window frame to the card base.
The Holly, Star and Bird
- Cut the star using yellow cardstock and the small bird using red cardstock.
- Apply yellow stickles to the star and set aside to dry.
- Cut the holly using green cardstock and the berries using red cardstock.
- Gently form the holly leaves using a large stylus and molding pad.
- Apply glossy accents to the berries, pick up the berries using a jewel picker and attach to the berry base.
- Apply red stickles to the berries and set aside to dry.
- Cut the poinsettia sections using red cardstock and the larger poinsettia section again using green cardstock to use a a base for the flower.
- Cut the tiny flower sections of the poinsettia using yellow cardstock.
- Lay the poinsettia sections face down on the molding pad and form the petals using a large round stylus.
- Lay the poinsettia sections face up and press down in the center of each section using a smaller tipped stylus.
- Layer the poinsettia sections together, offsetting the petals and attach with glossy accents.
- Attach the tiny yellow flowers in the center of the poinsettia using glossy accents.
- Apply yellow stickles to the flower center and set the flower aside to dry.
- Apply sparkle to the red poinsettia petals using a clear overlay pen.
- Check out my poinsettia tutorial if you would like to see the basic steps I use to create my dimensional flower.
Assemble the Shadow Box
- Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the holly leaves and attach them in the top and bottom window openings.
- Apply glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach to the card base inside the middle window.
- Tuck one small holly section under the poinsettia and attach in place with glossy accents.
- Attach the star to the top of the tree using glossy accents.
- Finish by attaching the little bird to the snow layer using a small piece of mounting tape.
I had lots of fun making this die cut Christmas shadow box card. It’s a different way to use the window die but I love how the windows accentuate the festive holiday images. I hope you enjoyed my project and I appreciate you coming by today.
