Spread a little Christmas joy and happiness featuring these warmhearted inspirations with the new Merry and Bright Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Share cheerful Yuletide greetings and well wishes with a fun and cutesy paper collection overflowing with precious outdoor scenes of cozy snow laden cottages, beautiful birds nestled in delightfully decorated pines, and pleasing decorative holiday arrangements!

Instructions:  Finished size of shadowbox is 6 3/8” wide x 6 2/8” high x 1” deep.  Start with a white shadowbox, cut patterned paper panels to cover front and sides as well as the village panel for the inside of the box.  For the front panel I used a die from the Cut Mat Create 2A set and cut half of the opening, repositioned the die and cut the other half of the opening creating the perfect fit for the opening on the shadowbox.  Ink all edges of patterned paper with tumbled glass ink, glue all pieces as pictured.  Add frosting powder to village image and heat emboss if desired. 

With die from Fleur Border Basics, cut 3 pieces that will make the mountains in front of the village, ink edges with distress ink and glue to the shadowbox flaps.

Stamp reindeer and sleigh image with black ink 4 times on watercolor paper, cut with coordinating dies and color with distress ink re-inkers.  Trim sections of the sleigh image to create the 3D effect, shape all pieces slightly on back with large stylus tip and glue with foam dots.  For the deer, cut out one collar and rope with scissors and glue with foam dots as pictured.  Glue image to front of shadowbox as pictured.

Stamp the following on white cardstock with black ink -  one ornament branch, Sepia ink - several pinecones, Emerald ink - several pine branches, holy leaves, small pine branches, 3 pinetree sets, Vibrant Fuchsia - 3 poinsettias.  Cut all images with coordinating dies.  Color with inks used to stamp the images.  Shape with flower shaping kit.  Layer and glue all images to upper left corner as pictured, for poinsettias add some blue stamen to centers and hot glue on box as pictured.  For all trees add frosting powder and heat emboss, glue to mountains as pictured.  Add frosting powder to greenery and pinecones, heat emboss.
