Today I’m sharing a shadow box winter scene card made using several die sets by Rubbernecker Stamps. This project is not quite as large and deep as the Gingerbread House Shadow Box card I posted a few days ago. I got my measurements a little off as well so the box is not quite as tall as I had intended. LOL! I used my favorite Splatter Background to stamp the falling snow on the box and inside layer and then forgot to stamp my trees before crimping them. The scene was made using the Wildlife Set, Globe Tree, Tabbed Birch Trees, Deckle Hills, Greenery #1, Small Birds and the frame opening was cut using the Nested Rounded Corner Rectangles. This whole card is a comedy of errors but I really love how the scene turned out.
The Shadow Box
- Stamp the blue cardstock using white pigment ink, apply white embossing powder and heat with heat gun.
- Create the shadow box by cutting the cardstock one inch wider and one inch taller than you want your box to be.
- Draw lines one inch in on all four sides of the cardstock.
- Cut the corners away from all four sides.
- Score lines at 1 inch and 1/2 inch all the way around the the card.
- Fold the scored flaps in all the way around the card,
- Cut 4 white snow layers to fit the width of the inside and outside of the box.
- Apply one layer of mounting tape to the back snow layer and attach to the base.
- Apply three layers of mounting tape to the second layer of snow and attach to the base.
- Apply double stick tape to the front of the third snow layer and attach it to the inside on the frame.
- Apply a single layer of mounting tape to the front snow layer and attach to the front of the box.
- Insert the inside scene layer to the inside of the box and secure to the top and bottom flap using double stick tape.
- Finish closing the box by attaching double stick tape to the side tabs.
- Apply double stick tape all the way around the back of the box and secure it to the folded card base.
The Trees and Greenery
- Cut the evergreen trees using green cardstock and the birch trees using white cardstock.
- Apply touches of Pumice Stone ink to the birch tree markings using a mini applicator.
- Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach in place using strips of mounting tape and glossy accents.
- Punch out 1/8 inch red circles and attach to the greenery using glossy accents.
- Tuck the greenery and berries in behind the snow layers and attach using glossy accents.
- Cut the deer using white cardstock.
- Apply Antique Linen ink over the whole deer body using a mini applicator.
- Create the darker shading on the deer using Vintage Photo ink and a mini applicator.
- Tuck the deer in behind the snow layers and attach with pieces of mounting tape.
Here is the list of dies and the stamp I used for my project.
This is the list of tools and supplies used for the project. You can check out My Favorite Crafting Tools Page to see all of the tools that I keep close at hand and use on a regular basis.
This fun shadow box winter scene card is the perfect card to give to one of the men in your life that loves nature and the outdoors. I’ll just think of them being out there taking photos of the deer and not hunting them. I appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have a wonderful day.
