Woodland Scene Shadowbox and Card

Happy Friday, all!  I'm back for one more share with the Shadowbox Collection by Becca Feeken.  Again I'm using the Adjustable Shadowbox Frame with 1/2" Border, but this time with the Layered Thinking of You Woodland Scene.

Just for fun I made a Christmas scene for the shadowbox.  No snow, just a woodland scene with green foliage, much like we'd see here on the Oregon Coast.  A brown deer and a white bunny.  I thought about cutting the bunny off, but there's no reason why you can't have a bunny in a Christmas scene.  Additional dies for dress up are Layered Poinsettia and Foliage.  I fashioned my own red polka dot corners.  Not sure it was a good idea, but they're not coming off now.




I made a card, too.  It's all guy with browns and wood grain card stock, but color added in the sponged background and the candy dot embellishments.  It took every ounce of self control I had to not make this all girly-cute.  I just know it would be so adorable with sweet colors and wildflowers!  We do have to think of the guys sometimes, though, don't we?




With these scene dies you can make such nice cards with minimal effort.  Seriously quick.  Maybe this weekend I'll make that sweet, feminine woodland scene with wildflowers.

Thanks for looking at my playtime with the Shadowbox Collection!  I sure had fun and it won't be the last of it.  I'll see you next week!

Gorgeous!! I wish I could figure out how to add so many elements to a card and have it look like they were supposed to be there! You got all the skills!

Love how you are using the shadow boxes. Great Christmas card and woodland scene. As I look at that woodland scene I recognize it would fit in the the Grand Cabinet. Don't you think I need that?

Oh my goodness Leslie, both are gorgeous! Fabulous masculine cards, love all your details on these. I can vision the card leaning towards the girly-cute style as well - oh what fun that would be. Okay I really need to get these dies! and I agree with Joan - you do have all the skills! Enjoy your weekend Leslie. Hugs,

WOW these are amazing! I bought the 1/2 shadow box frame and haven't figured it out yet but will watch Becca's video again first chance I get and give it a try! You have TRULY inspired me with all these amazing creations! Hopefully I'll have time before my April 17th show because I think the ladies would LOVE these! Beautifully created my friend!

You certainly captured two different "feels" with these beauties, Leslie! The 2nd one reminds me of wood grain imposed in leather working. Having a glimpse into the habitat of happy foresters makes it especially sweet. Your birch trees are lovey! We had some in our front yard in California when I was a little girl. A recent photo shows those trees no longer exist.

I especially like your dotted corners in the first card, rounding off all the straight lines, even though the berries are bursting forth in the background! Gorgeous poinsettias, too! Love both creations - and I admire that your fingers could so carefully place tiny pieces as you have done! hugs, de

Great shadow box card. The little bunny is perfect with the deer. Lots of die cuts that make sore quick card to boot. That bunny just makes me smile and think of Bambi with this friend. Both are very sweet Leslie.

These are SO DARN CUTE! I have been really good so far this year with not buying anything new, but I LOVE these shadowbox dies that you have been showcasing and I am really tempted to try one out. Looks like a great easy Christmas card.

Kathy Krug said...

Leslie what gorgeous creations. i love the shadow box and that ypu also used the layered die for a card without the frame. It shows of the versatility of the die.

Yes we do have to think about the guys and you have created a fabulous scene with it, love the wood backgrounds on each and I just like how your added touches gave it a Christmas box, and so glad you didn't cut out the bunny he is too cute in it. Like the sparkle touches you gave to it, terrific dimension!

Lynette said...

Those are amazing and so adorable. And of course bunnies can be on a Christmas card - we do have bunnies most of the winter, seems to me:)

Diane said...

Beautifully created shadow box cards with all your always fabulous eye for details!! Adding the bunnies is a clever idea, snow bunny for Christmas and a Spring bunny as well! When looking thru my basket that sits on my creative table, I found a Lawn Fawn Shadow Box die I haven't even opened...so thanks for inspiring me!!

Pam Sparks said...

I love the versatility of this shadow box! Delightful festive scene and thinking of you cards! The bunny is adorable and the corners just add to the festive-ness of it all! That bunny in chocolate... could be Easter too! :D

Ros Crawford said...

You take shadow box to the next level! These are terrific and would grace any wall too! I may be a CAS gal but I adore that first card!
