I saved my best project for last the Merry Christmas Monday project of 2018!   I made my first shadow box card!  I saw a regular folded card made with the Winter Woods stamp set from the holiday catalog and they embossed the trees in white.  That got my creative juices flowing and I knew what I wanted to do, but I needed to figure out how.

I got on to YouTube and saw a tutorial from Dawn Griffith on how to do a shadow box card.  I watched her make one and went from there on how to design my card.  Thank you for Dawn for sharing your directions!

Isn't the side view so awesome!!!  I was so excited when I finished this card, that I had to run upstairs and show it to Mr. Wonderful and Erica.  I have to say, I think I impressed them with this card! Yay!!!  This card will lay flat so you can put it in a normal size envelope.

Here is a close up of the front of the card.  On this piece I stamped the trees with Versa Mark and then used Clear Embossing Powder to give them that shine.  On the inside of the card, I used Night of Navy ink to create the background and then used White Embossing Powder on the trees.

For my snow I did use the retired white velvet paper that was in the holiday catalog.  You could use the Sparkle Glimmer paper that is in the annual catalog.  I made this card about 2 months ago and the paper was available at that time.  It has been hard waiting share this card with all of you.  The trees in the Winter Woods are so beautiful.  It doesn't matter if you stamp them with ink, or emboss them with different embossing powders, they are still beautiful each and every time.   I am so excited that this stamp set is carrying over into 2019!  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Night of Navy

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" score at 1/2", 4". 4 1/2" and 8"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/2"

Whisper White

  • cut 2 at 3 1/4" x 5 1/4"

To cut the opening I used the Layering Square Framelits to create a rectangle.  In the new Occasions catalog there is Rectangle Stitched Framelits that I can't wait to try.  I used the Metallic Edge Ribbon in Whisper White to wrap around the front of the card.  I then took another piece of the ribbon and used it to tie a knot.

I really, really, enjoyed making this card and have already come up with ideas to make another one with this shadow box type of fold.  

I hope you like the card I created and would love to hear your feedback on it.  Please let a comment below.  I ended up making this card for both our moms for their Christmas cards this year.   I know they are going to love it, because moms are suppose to love whatever we make.  Right?  

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you are all finished with your Christmas shopping.  If not, I might see you out shopping later this week!

Such a beauty inside and out!!

Thank you Michelle

Carol

I just love this card, my question is what did you do to get the frosty looking background behind the trees. It has me puzzled. Cheers

Joyce Whitman

Hi Carol,
Sorry for the delay in answering you, I just saw your comment. For the background on the inside of the card, I used Night of Navy ink and a sponge. I stamped the trees with Versamark and then added white embossing powder. The embossing powder gives it the shiny look.

On the front of the card I used Versamark in and then clear embossing powder.

I hope that helps. If you have any more questions, please let me know.

Carol

I’m still puzzled Joyce. Above the snow line and behind the trees it looks frosted how did that happen?

Joyce Whitman

Hi Carol! I think it is the way the light is shining on it in the pictures. The only thing behind the trees is Night of Navy ink that I lightly put on with a sponge.

Suzanne

I'm confused by that image as well. Did you use the 4 x 5.5 piece of Night of Navy cardstock and add the Night of Navy ink? Or did you use white cardstock and then add the ink? It definitely looks white behind the tree trunks. Also, you only used Versa Mark ink and clear embossing powder on the front? Why does it look black?

Joyce Whitman

Hi Suzanne,

For the inside tree piece I used the white 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" piece of cardstock and used Night of Navy ink and a sponge to create the background. I then stamped the trees with Versamark and added white embossing powder.

Yes, I used the versamark ink on the front and then added clear embossing powder. It does look black in the picture and sometimes on the card, depending on how the light hits it.

The only place I used Night of Navy ink is on the background on the white piece and for the sentiment.

I hope I answered your questions. If you have any other questions, please let me know. I am happy to answer them.

Have a great day!

Suzanne

Hi Joyce -

Thank you for the clarification - it all makes perfect sense now!

Joyce Whitman

Yay! I am happy to help at any time! Have a great week!

Lori

Joyce Whitman

Thank you so much Lori!
