Christmas Day Shadow Box - Spellbinders Large Die of the Month


Christmas Day Shadow Box - Spellbinders Large Die of the Month 

This month, I used Spellbinders Large Die of the Month to create a scene from Christmas morning - complete with a warm fire blazing in the fireplace.  The fireplace is from Spellbinders of course.  

Perfect for holiday cards and great for memory keeping scrapbook pages but I thought it would make a wonderful focal point to a dimensional holiday scene. 

Here is an image of the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for the month of October.   

Above is a close up of the completed fireplace with stocking decorations, candlesticks and greens for the wreath that come included in the set  ( I added my own florals).  

The "crown molding" along the top of the house was created using the fireplace grate die.  

The wooden frame comes from a big box craft store and was part of their thanksgiving home decor.  I purchased for the purpose of repurposing and using as a shadow box.  
The "wall paper" today is Maja Design's Traditional Christmas  fort he wall paper and the 6x6 paper pad for the gift wrapping and stockings.  

Let's talk about the Fireplace: 
Of course the fireplace die is Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for October.  

The fireplace is dimensional because I added a few layers of foam to create the desired dimension.  
I wanted the inside of the fireplace to be brickwork so I used a chipboard castle from Creative Embellishment, cut and pieces it together, then white washed (watered down paint) with a sponge.  

The chipboard pieces
Here are the chipboard pieces used on the scene. 

Here is a nice image of the top of the house showing the "crown molding" die set from the featured die set,  the decorated chipboard house topper (Creative Embellishments Chipboard Filigree Corners), and the decorated wreath.
