Christmas Box Frame 2019
Good afternoon all, I hope you are having a great day. I have been up and about since 7am this morning and have been feeling quite creative which is always good. I am a little tired now though so I have decided to sit down for a bit, listen to some music (today's music is a blast from the past - The Bangles - Eternal Flame) and update my blog which I really enjoy doing.
Box Frames are incredibly difficult to photograph so I apologise for any shadows. I have made a Christmas Box Frame picture for the last 3 years so decided I would add another one to the collection. If you don't already know I love Snowmen so I bought yet another Snowman Die and added some more Tree Dies to my collection and this is what I created. My original plan was to add a little dog beside the tree but the Robin looked better and I love Robins too.
The smaller trees are cut with an original Sizzix Die (yellow box) which is now retired and the larger tree is cut with a Marianne Die - all are cut in stardust glitter card. The Snowman is cut in pearl card, I normally use googly eyes but they just didn't look right.
The small snowflakes are glitter pre-cut embellishments which I have in my craft stash. The Christmans Word and little Robin are from my local craft shop - Laser Creations / Doodle Craft and I have embossed them with Wow! Embossing Powder ... there was glitter everyhwere, I think my face may have sparkled just a little.
I finished this off with artificial snow and some scatter glass beads, the snow is a little static with the perspex but I think it just makes it look like it is snowing.
The background paper is Echo Park which unfortunately is now retired but I have found a few alternatives which I think will also work well with the design.
I have a few more projects which I hope to have finished in the next few days so I will keep you all updated.
As always if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
I hope you all have a fantastic evening.
Bye for now.
Take care, Heather
