Silent Night Shadow Box
Hello Everyone and Welcome to My Blog!
Had some fun creating this Silent Night shadow box project for my upcoming craft shows. This was a fairly easy project to do even though I took it step by step to make it come to life.
The frame is a 5 inch by 7 inch shadow box frame. There is about a 3/4 inch clearance between the back of the box and the glass so it gives you an option to add more 3 D items. I started by making the "Silent Night" letters from vinyl cut from my Silhouette Cameo machine. The letters are about 3/4 inch high and I needed them to fit on the frame. The "g" just slightly falls a little below the frame but I don't think this should be a problem.
I looked for a stable scene from the collection of images I had in my Silhouette library and sized this one to fit pretty well. Dimensions are about 4 inches by 4 inches and it's perfect. I added a silver mirror paper star above the stable and added a rhinestone to it.
I tore a piece of white card stock to make some "snowy hills" and made tabs about 1/2 inch wide to bring the torn paper forward in the frame. I also added a support to the back of the snow hill paper to make sure it wouldn't collapse.
For the background, I used Night of Navy card stock and embossed the galaxy and stars on it from the stamp set "Star of Light". I embossed with silver some trees from "Lovely As A Tree" stamp set and "Wonderland" stamp sets and added them to the design. For the last added touch, I added some fake snow at the bottom of the frame to make the project come full circle.
All in all, it was a pretty easy project and I hope you like it. Would love to hear your comments so please add...good or bad!
Until next time,
