Christmas Elf Shadow Box Display




I love the way this new project came out. It’s a Santa's Christmas toy factory themed shadow box display that I made for my Christmas decorations that has lots of patterns and sparkle. My inspiration for this project is all the little Christmas Elf images that I’ve colored using my Copic markers. I used brown cardstock, Tim Holtz Distress Ink and brown paint on the frame and added lots of sparkle with Stickles (Silver, Star Dust and Platinum).  I colored up several crystal dots and Tim Holtz embellishments with the same Copic marker colors I used on the elves. I loved the cute candy cane stripe ribbon. Many of the images have been raised up with pop dots. The tree is wrapped with gold floss and I added a star charm to the top. The paper is mostly patterns from the Echo Park Season’s Greetings line and the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Collection.
