Winter Scene Shadow Box

Hi friends, I have been working on some Christmas projects and today I have a winter scene shadow box I made with stamps, dies, and paper from Heartfelt Creations.
I colored all the images with Prismacolor color pencils.
I adhered all the branches on a stamped piece of clear cardstock.
I adhered the little snowflakes and added glitter to the centers.
Here is the back of the box, after I covered it with the patterned paper I applied a coat of sparkle mod podge.
Here is another closeup of the inside, I used small strips of clear cardstock to hold the light post and deer in place.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

  6. This is absolutely gorgeous!!! I have to know where you got the deer stamp! I tried clicking on it in your supplies list but it doesn't take me anywhere! LOL PLEASE let me know because I MUST have this stamp. My entire family are hunters and this would be such an incredible stamp to use on their memory pages! Thank you!

    1. Hi Barbara,
      Thank you for your wonderful comment. I just discovered my self that this deer stamp has been retired, I made the project and when I was linking all the Heartfelt Creations' items I couldn't find it that's why it's not linked like the other items. I'm really hoping that we bring this image back with a new collection, I love it. It's so perfect for masculine cards or layouts.

    2. Thank you for letting me know! I am going to have to search the web and see if I can locate one anywhere! It is absolutely perfect for my needs!
