Winter is Coming for 2015

I've been working on some Christmas / Holiday / Winter projects of late. Our last two card workshops were all Christmas / Seasonal cards. But first, I'd like to show you a decor piece I've made for myself.

I've been on an ornament kit this year too (not for the holidays but for another, future, secret project). While working on them, I bought extras to make snow globe scenes. I really wanted to do the ornament version, but I thought, why not try my gable box?

I made an acetate gable box. Then I lined the inside with the blue snowflake paper. I lined the outside with a silver embossed snowflake paper. Inside the box window I created, I spaced out 4 layers of snowy hillsides with Stardust Stickles glitter glue on their edges.

Then, I added my hillside fixings: a stag (Cottage Cutz), Evergreen Trees (Quickutz) and little houses (my own die cut design on my Brother Scan'N'Cut). It was not easy to work with the acetate. This display is staying home with me, as I am unlikely to make another!

I opened the top of the box and dumped in some fake snow. It's like shredded cellophane with a nice sheen.

What holiday crafts have you been up to? What ones are on your bucket list?
