Instructions: Stamp out Snowy Pines Cabin with Memento Tuxedo and colour with alcohol markers, stamp over with versafine and clear heat emboss. Die-cut the outer wreath and around the trees and cabin. Use low tack tape to secure the internal wreath die and place on the cutting place overhanging the area not to cut and run through the die-cut machine. Die-cut 2no. Diamonds & Lace and trim off 3no edges, 2no. Regal Pocket Accents and 4no. corners from Album Tags & Accents in white. Cut from the paper pad a decorative panel 5 3/8 x 4 1/8” and die-cut the aperture using Cut Mat Create 1A 2.75 x 3.75” rectangle die.
Create the shadow box to suit 5 3/8 x 4 1/8” paper pad decorative panel. Cut white cardstock 11 3/8 x 10 1/8” and score at 1/2, 1 1/2, 2, 3”, then rotate the cardstock and repeat the score line measurements to all sides. On one side, create an additional score line at 3 1/2” x 1 1/2” long (two score lines), flip your cardstock over and repeat. This has created two new score lines on one side. Repeat these score lines on the opposite side only. Cut along the 3 1/2” score line (two score lines) then out and diagonal to the next score line and straight to the final score line (to meet the rectangle centre) and repeat this cut to all four mitred sides. Make four additional cuts along the adjoining score lines to cut away each outer corner of 11 3/8 x 10 1/8. Create a finger hole to allow access to light switch, die-cut Album Tags and Accents 0.75 x 1.25” tag on the short side (landscape) of the score line nearest the rectangle centre leaving enough space for the battery pack. Prior to assembling the shadow box adhere the battery pack. Adhere the tag die-cut to the visible portion of the battery pack. Adhere the plain sides of the box first and bring the mitred edges over the top.
Cover the back of the box in red paper and a centre band in green/green gingham. Attach Diamonds and Lace to either side of the sentiment and adhere. Adhere Diamonds and Lace to the front top and Regal pocket Accents die-cuts to either end of the box prior to the aperture panel. Adhere corners around the aperture and Snowy Pines Cabin over. Finish with snowy fluffy stuff and dries clear and glitter.
