Snowy Day

The Alpha Stamps December kit is titled "Christmas Nostalgia", and oh boy, do I have some nostalgic artwork for you today: using the 2" by 3" Mini Shadowbox and lid, I made the sweetest little winter scene. It reminds me of a vintage Christmas card. A swag of tiny holly leaves frame the inside of the opening, some Stickles (glitter in a tube) frame the outside, and glittery snowflakes finish off the top.

I used two copies of the same image to achieve a 3D look inside. I glittered up the background of the full image, and then cut out the girl and her dog and glittered only the snow. I attached the figures on top with foam tape so they stand out from the cold and snowy background. Aren't they the sweetest?

I used a stripey paper for the sides of the box on the inside, and there's some cream colored rick rack trim around the outer sides of the box.

Sides and back, with a little contrasting paper for fun.

So much glitter and sweetness in such a small box! Here's a little better idea of how small it really is.
A very merry Christmas. For a list of supplies, click here.
