Santa Sleigh Shadowbox

Here's another shadowbox card. Slightly different measurements - still a challenge to photograph it!

Closer view of the scene:
The words at the card front created by using a Versamark Pen, white embossing powder. Definitely need to use the Stamp-a-mah-jig for this.

Measurements for this card (see photo below):
(1) 6-1/2" x 4-1/4" for the Front, on 6-1/2" side: score 1" on the right and left side
(1) 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" for Middle Section, on 5-1/2" side: score 1/2" on the right and left side
(1) 6-1/2" x 4-1/4" for the Back, on 6-1/2" side: score 1" on the right and left side
Use the 1-3/4" Circle Punch for the card front. Push punch all the way into card, line up the right and left side of punch. Punch center last.

Use the 1-1/2" Circle Punch for the middle section:

Using Versamark ink, stamp across bottom front with Lovely as a Tree stamp. Apply white embossing powder and heat. Be sure to use the embossing buddy for this. Use Craft white ink and a stamping sponge to add white "snow" as the background.
Back panel details:
-To ensure the Santa sleigh is lined horizontal across the punched circle, use a Stamp-a-mah-jig.
-Using the punched middle section as a template, lightly pencil the right and left side circles as a guide for the sleigh image.
-Use a Versamark Pen to ink the Sleigh and stars (no words).
-Apply Black Embossing powder, heat and let cool.
-Punch, on a scrap piece of card stock, a 1" circle to make "sun". Use More mustard and a sponge. Tip: See how I have used a binder clip around the sponge so some of my fingers can stay clean?
- see photo below for sky background
Using a 1" punched circle, mask the "sun" and sponge Ballet Blue Ink for the background.

WOW Patti! You always have such fabulous tips on your blog. Wish I had known this tip with the sponge and the ink for a project I was working on last weekend. I turned not only my entire fingers but the nails too a beautiful shade of green. I was sponging some Holiday Tree chip board books for my grandkids...what a mess.

Thank You for this fabulous tip and believe me-I'll use it next time I'm needing to sponge my projects. It totally would have saved my beautiful french manicure....oh and learn. YIKES! Kadie
