Darsie's Snowman Shadow box.
To create your shadow box cut 3 panels - cut 1 panel sized 6" x 7", cut 2 panels sized 6" x 7 ½". Score on each side at ¼ inch and fold.
Next cut the last panel is sized 6" x 10". Score on each side at ½" and 1 ½" and fold. This panel is the front of your shadow box.
Using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A #3, #5 and #7 (die #1 is the smallest die). Place die #7 in the middle of the first (non-scored) panel, secure with tape, and cut with your machine.
Place that frame onto one of the ¼ inch scored panels, then place die #5 into the center, secure with tape, and cut.
Place that frame on top of the last ¼ inch scored panel, then place die #3 into the center, secure with tape, and cut.
Stamp and emboss each panel with Snow Days Background Cling stamp.
To create the snow hills, used Spellbinders Curved Borders One with cardstock. Make two of these.
To put the shadowbox together, add glue to the ¼" scored panel with the smallest opening and glue to the side flaps of the main large panel. Add a snow hill to the frame. Add glue to the second ¼" scored panel with the middle sized opening and glue on top of the previous frame. Add a snow hill, the snowman and a snowflake.
Glue the final frame on top and add the trees, a sentiment piece and the remaining snowflake.
