Christmas Shadow Box Card

*Merry Christmas Crafters &  Friends - New and Old 
Welcome to my blog!  

If you're here to see the fabulous project that is featured in my Youtube Video " Christmas Shadow Box Card " I will just add a few pointers and information to help any of you - YOU MUST TRY ONE OF THESE! 

Watch Laura Cline's Tutorial Video below at the end of this post.

My Christmas Shadow Box Card.....

*Here is the beginnings where I took a kraft blank of the basic card structure and I covered it with some designer paper....I made a second one in Very Vanilla since I thought it would be better to create two right away, and after Christmas I will come back and finish the second one in a whole other style!

*Now I have created the "accordian-pleated" Shadow Frame.....

....and I have gilded the interior fold edges with metallic gold paint.

*I have added my backing paper to the Shadow Frame....it is very pretty paper which cannot be captured properly here as the circles have delicate glittery edges....so pretty. 

.....smooched edges with FROST Smooch, and added bling, and you can see that the Greeting from Christmas Lodge Stamp Set has also been embossed using the same embossing powder/glitter mix I mention in the video....

*I am keeping the palette in frosty metallics with some blue to counter all the natural tones and the flowers add just a dash of red!  But I used a metallic pen to add an accent here and there such as the Star - but then afterwards I added tiny rhinestones to the star....you can't help but glitter this project up! You can't!
