My Favorite Things Shadow Box Card

I've seen many versions of shadow box cards on the internet, and I decided to do one for a Christmas card.  This card is for entry into the My Favorite Things 2018 Card Design Superstar contest.  This was truly a challenge for me because I unfortunately do not own any MFT character stamps (the horror!). I have die sets, word dies, and one stamp set with hand-lettered sentiments. 

I created the base structure of my card with navy blue cardstock and mounted a lighter blue shade to the front with the Merry and Bright sentiment from the MFT Hand-lettered Christmas stamp set. I shaded around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink.

Inside the card I used the MFT Scenic Snow Globe die set and added fine glitter for the snow effect.  The backdrop is white cardstock shaded using a blending tool and shaded with Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink.  I used the Die-namics Elegant Rectangle for window openings, and cut a frame for each using the next larger die and the one used for the window.

Here's a closeup of the inside scene.  I had some MFT Frosty Ice Cubes, and decided to put a few around the snowman.  The "peace on earth" sentiment is also from the MFT Hand-lettered Christmas stamp set. 

This card was so much fun to create, and I can't wait to send it to someone for Christmas.  Good luck to all who enter the contest!
