Heartfelt Creations - Golden Christmas Shadow Box

 Hi and welcome!

Today I have a shadow box card to share with you. This is one of my favorite fun fold cards to create. Once again I've used the gorgeous Holiday Ornament Collection for this project.


Instructions: Card size is 7 x 5”. Score and fold 10 x 7” white cardstock at 5” on the long side to create card base. Cut Luxe Gold cardstock 2x to 6 7/8 x 4 7/8”. Cut Holiday Ornament Paper Collection sheet 3A 2x to 6 3/4 x 4 3/4”, ink the edges with Leaf Green ink, stamp the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from the Festive Berry & Birdies Cling Stamp set using Archival Vermilion ink on one of the designer papers, adhere it to a Luxe Gold layer and adhere to the inside of the card. Adhere the other designer paper to the other gold mat layer and adhere to the card front. Cut two tags from the paper collection using the smaller Tickets and Tags Die, ink the edges with Leaf Green ink and adhere to Luxe Gold cardstock tags cut using the larger tag die. Punch the holes in the tags, diecut the reinforcements for the holes from gold using the same die set, adhere the reinforcements to the tags and add Red satin cord. Trim a little off the bottom of the tags and adhere them to the right side of the card front as shown.

Create a 5 x 5” shadow box. Score a 7 x 11 1/2” piece of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper on the short side at 1/2”, 1”, 6” and 6 1/2”. Score the long side at 1/2”, 1”, 6” and 6 1/2”. Trim the right top and bottom score lines off up to the first vertical score line, using scissors to cut tabs. (See sample on my blog.) Cut paper from the paper collection sheet 8B 1x to 4 7/8 x 4 7 /8”, 4x to 3/8 x 4 7/8” and ink the edges with Leaf Green ink. Using removable tape, temporarily adhere the 4 7/8 x 4 7/8” designer paper to the front of the shadow box. Using the Cut Mat Create 2A die, cut the aperture in both the card front and the designer paper at the same time. Adhere the designer papers to the box using dries clear adhesive prior to assembling. Cut a 4 7/8 x 4 7/8” piece from the paper collection sheet 10A and adhere to the inside of the box. Finish folding at all score lines and adhere to form the shadow box. Adhere the shadow box to the left side of the card front using dries clear adhesive.

Stamp the images from the Sparkling Holiday Ornaments cling stamp set on white cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder, heat set using the Heat It tool, color using Stampin Blends markers and diecut using the coordinating dies. Diecut a second time from white cardstock and adhere to the back of the stamped images for stability. Spray the images with Imagine Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray – Sparkle and let dry. Adhere the ornament images to the shadow box as pictured using dries clear adhesive and dimensional dots. 

Stamp the Small and Large Festive Poinsettias on red cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter and heat set. Diecut using the coordinating dies and shape in the coordinating molds. Use the stylus to press down in the flower centers, offset two flowers and adhere together using hot glue to create two small and one medium flowers. Add a little hot glue to the flower centers and cover with Gold Gala Glitz. Stamp the holly leaf image from the Small Festive Poinsettia Cling Stamp set on Luxe gold cardstock, cover with the WOW Embossing Glitter, heat set and diecut using the coordinating die. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to add shape to diecuts.

Adhere the flowers and leaves to the shadow box. Randomly sponge the shadow box, ornaments, tags, inside of card, flowers and leaves with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Magic Glitter powder.
