Jingles the Snowman, Shadow box / Shaker Card and Some Challenges!!

I have been wanting to make a Shadow box forever and finally got around to it!! I actually went one step further and made it a shaker shadow box!!

I used one of my latest illustrations from the new releases over at Digital Delights, Jingles the Snowman, and printed him out twice. I cut him out and then on the other just cut the head and scarf, then put him together with foam dots. The background was made with a cloud template and water based ink. The rest of the scene was created using paper piecing which I cut from different card stocks. I used my dotty cuttlebug folder for the snowy hills and then added some flowersot around the edges.

The front of the shadowbox has an acetate window. For the shaker part, I added some micro beads and  Diamond Dust. I also used my cricut to cut out the word "SNOW" on the front and also to cute out the frame around the box which I distresed with my nail file!!
I finished off by adding some snowflake buttons, a row of beads and some ribbon.

Of course being a shadow box the card is pretty deep, so that called for a handcrafted box!!

On the inside I made a small envelope to hold a gift card and used my new MS Loopy punch for details!!

I also entered it into the following challenges:
Stamp with Fun - Create a Scene
Papertake Weekly - Spots & Stripes
Creative Card Crew - Snowflakes
Cuttlebug Challenge - Favorite things (Jingles te Snowman)
Stamp with Stampavie - Blue and Silver
Color Throwdown - Eggplant / Blue / Razzleberry (kind of close!!)

Hope you are having a fun day!!
