Festive Shadow Box

Here is wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year in 2013 !!

It's been a long time since I posted on my blog and it has been sadly neglected.  The gap has been caused by major re-furbishments to my home which caused havoc.  I still can't find most of my craft stuff .......... it is all there but in a mish-mash of boxes etc.  I will get this sorted in the New Year and I very much need my craft fix again as I have really missed it.

This little 6 x 3 inch shadow box and stand is made from chipboard and contains no stamping at all.

Papers used are from Prima (North Country 6 x 6 stack), trimmed and applied in the compartments as shown.  The box was given a couple of coats of bronze acrylic paint beforehand.

Various embellishmnets were added to give a bit of dimension, some stickers, a brad and metal charms.

Some maroon gingham ribbon was added around the box and some ice Stickles added around the front edges.

  1. Whoa Sid, how lovely to hear from you. I've been wondering where you've been and hoping everything was okay with you, so pleased to hear it was all only because of a few bricks and mortar (well a bit more than that, but you know what I mean!!)

    Wishing you and your family a merry Christmas and all the best for the coming year, including getting your craft stash into some order!!

  9. Well hello stranger. I kept checking your blog to see if perhaps you disappeared from BlogLand and am so happy to see you back.

    Sounds like you've had your hands filled with other "crafty" projects and here's hoping that when you, as my grandmother would have said, "get all your ducks in a row" you'll be back creating like crazy and sharing with us so we can sit here from afar in awe.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
