Shadow Box Christmas Card

Hello Everyone

This shadow box card was inspired by the new Colour Coach that is available in the UK Stampin' Up! catalogue for the first time this year.

For those of you who don't know, the Colour Coach helps you create winning colour combinations. This project uses a selection of colours that I wouldn't have put together - but that Coach was right - I love the vibrancy of Melon Mambo, Concorde Crush and River Rock.


The design of this card is a total original, in that not having a large circle cutter, I had to be creative and use three 1 3/4" circle punches.

I stamped a snowflake background using an image from Sparkly and Bright and once again used my Contempo Christmas stamps to create the ornaments.

Love how this one turned out. My next project is also Colour Coach inspired - back with it in a couple of days.

  1. It is surely cute & adorable, but very unique too... Don't seem to understand the pattern of it... & wondering how would it fit into the envelope... ;)The pattern must be a sure challenge..... It is very different, new & nice too..... Hugs)))
