Shadow Box Snowy Winter

Greetings, I have been playing around with the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box die set.  Since I don't use stamps or have the ability to color I was really struggling to find dies small enough to insert into the box dimensions.  I did apply a small piece of acetate to the front just for fun.  The nice thing about this die is the entire card folds flat for mailing.

Update on my black bear issue, he is back, knocked over the container I have garden clippings in and managed to pull everything out on the ground.  I guess he was looking for the cantaloupe peels inside.  Gosh he is a big pain in the butt.   Also the people behind us have a huge horse farm and the bear took down the fence on their property in several locations.  He weighs over 200 pounds so the fence didn't have a chance.

Ventured out to have my teeth cleaned, wore my mask until I got into the chair, there is a limited amount of people in the dentist office now, there were only two of us getting a teeth cleaning. The hygienist was wearing a mask, goggles and a plastic shield.  

Husband finally got his hair cut, he worn a mask the entire time.  So far neither of us has gotten the virus from going out.  I just can't believe how it is ramping up in the United States now.

  1. I like your charming shadow box snowy winter craft. We are getting nearer to Christmas. The bear sounds scary. I am planning a visit to the denture to get my teeth cleaned, hopefully can get an appointment for next Monday. We are still wearing a mask whenever we venture out to public places.

  2. Hello,
    The shadow Box winter scene is pretty, well done. We had a bear once on our deck, it knock over a heavy trash can that held a 50lb bag of bird seed. It was spooked and we never saw it again. The Dentist visit does not sounds too bad, I should make my appointment. Thanks for visiting my blog. Take care! Enjoy your day and the week ahead.

  3. I love this, i love that it is 3d, amazing creation hugs Pops x

  4. A beautiful shadow box card Diane, you have created a wonderful window scene.

  5. Oh this is wonderful Diane :-)

  6. What a terrific card Diane, such a lovely scene. That bear seems to be quite a character!! Take care xx

  7. Oh WOW such a beautiful card! The scene is gorgeous - love it.

  8. Your card is fabulous Diane!! Love the dimension and shadow box. So pretty.
    I think maybe it's time for that bear to relocate elsewhere!
    Stay safe getting out of the house.

  9. Wow! I just love this gorgeous scene you've made with the box die! I one of the box or pop up dies and haven't used it for a while...now you have inspired me to pull it out especially for a fun Christmas design! Love that house! As for that black bear...OMG! I would be terrified! I will be getting my teeth and hair done in the next month or so...hopefully I can get things done before another something hits us! Stay well and happy! HUGS

  10. What a wonderful shadow box Diane, love the little scene, you are so clever doing these projects.
    That's a big bear, I hope he won't go after the horses. Well done with the teeth, our dentists aren't back yet, stay safe, Kate x

  11. that is an awesome scene you have created, so neat that it will collapse to fit into an envelope. Love how the cloud die worked great for the snow!
    Wow let's hope the bear stays away from your house and does no damage there. Glad to hear you are staying safe!

  12. Oh what a neat project! Love seeing this 3D shadow box--something I'd never make! A 200 pound bear is something I don't want to see near my place, but we did enjoy spotting one at Shasta Lake one year. Horrible situation in the US where you'd think things would be better than the rest of the world. I have to get a crown, but not sure I'll do the cleaning for awhile. This is really scary--stay safe & hopefully more people will wear masks & keep their distance.

  13. Such a creative project and it is absolutely beautiful and can fold flat too....how clever.
    Thank you for the update on the 'big' bear and hope he doesn't do too much further damage x.
    Dentists (and hairdressers) still not open our end and well done on getting yours done x.

  14. Very creative as always, i just how you create little scenes. Gosh a bear - can't even imagine that - the main issue we have with wildlife here is the seagulls. Stay safe, Hugs Emmax

  15. Loving this shadow box design Diane, a lovely scene
    and so very festive. Great too, that it folds flat for posting. We have squirrels, beautiful birds, rabbits that eat our veg and flowers, deer that nibble our trees and shrubs and pheasants that eat our seeds lol! but thankfully....no scary bears lol! Hope you are well.
    Hugs Jennifer xx.

  16. What a great Christmas card,love it!

  17. This is just brilliant - if I received a Christmas card like this it would take pride of place in my display! How er... exciting? to have a black bear on the rampage :/ I'm hoping you are safe inside - and he won't hurt the horses will he? The damage must be annoying. Well done for getting out to the dentist and your husband getting his hair cut. There's such a waiting list at our dentists - I've made an appointment for my son, who has a loose tooth, but am having to wait for mine while people with serious issues are being seen. Have a good weekend! Vicky x

  18. Well I don't know how I missed this really super creation, it is stunning and love the house and the layers of snow and not forgetting the trees.

  19. Fabulous shadow box and love all the layered steps-tbh you don't need stamps you are doing brilliantly with your dies and very creative-I tend to just use mine as is!I have been lucky with my hair as daughter came home last year and before she went to work in care she was a qualified hairdresser and manageress of a salon
