Card size is 6 x 6". Cut black cardstock 12 x 6", score on the long side at 6" and fold to create card base. Cut two pieces of designer paper from the collection as shown 5 7/8 x 5 7/8", ink the edges first with faded jeans and then with wilted violet using the stack and store daubers. Adhere one piece to the card front and the other to the inside of the card using dries clear adhesive.
Cut paper from the collection to fit the 5 x 5" shadowbox front, top, bottom, sides and inside back of the shadow box. You will need 2 pieces 4 7/8 x 4 7/8" and 4 strips measuring 4 7/8 x 7/16" each. Use the die from the Cut Mat Create 2A Die to cut the opening in the front. Ink all the edges with faded jeans and then with wilted violet. Adhere all of the paper to the shadow box using dries clear adhesive.
Stamp the Bethlehem scene and a 1 x 3 3/4" strip on black cardstock using VersaMark, sprinkle with Heat & Stick powder, heat set using the Heat It tool, sprinkle with the Blue Raven glitter and heat set again. Adhere the city scene to the 1" strip to add height.
Stamp the grass from the Wildwood Cottage Accents stamp set four times on green cardstock using Archival Olive ink and die cut. Trim them so that you have two continuous strips, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Crystal Clear glitter. Adhere one grass strip to the Bethlehem city scene and the other to the outside of the shadow box. Adhere the Bethlehem scene with the grass and the star to the inside of the shadow box using dimensional dots. Adhere the other grass to the front of the shadow box as shown.
Stamp the angels and the Merry Christmas on white cardstock using VersaMark, sprinkle with pewter embossing powder and heat set. Cut the sentiment two more times from white cardstock and adhere the layers together using dries clear adhesive. Color the angels using the Zig markers, shape lightly with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and glitter the wings with Blue Rain glitter. Adhere the angels to the top corners of the shadow box using dimensional dots and adhere the Merry Christmas to the top center of the shadow box with glue.
Adhere the shadow box to the card base and using a paintbrush and dries clear adhesive, add Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter to the stars on the designer paper.
