Stampin' Up! First Christmas Shadowbox Card!

I used a beautiful Holiday Catalog set, "First Christmas", to create this "shadowbox" card:

First christmas 1

I chose to use the Early Espresso Core'dinations cardstock for the front of the "stable".

Stampingrox! Product Review: After running this layer through the Big Shot in the "Woodgrain" Embossing Folder, I found the condition of the paper to be a bit more delicate than I really liked for a card with so many folds, but I was able to make it work! I also used the new "Stampin' Sanding System" to increase the distressed look of the woodgrain, which of course made the cardstock even more delicate! In the future I will limit my use of this particular cardstock to a flat second layer.

I heat embossed the baby in the manger, the greeting, and the star with Pewter Stampin' Emboss Powder. All were cut out with either the Labels or Bitty Banners Framelit Dies, as was the opening in the center of the "stable". The holly and berries embellishments were created with one of the leaf and stem "Cannery" framelits and Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details.

Hope you've enjoyed my "shadowbox" card!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! Day!
