Good Morning Friends…
Today is a special day as we designers at Heartfelt Creation’s are debuting another series of their new Layered Cards and Shadow Boxes. I am so happy that one of my creations has inspired the company to launch the layered cards for crafters around the world. I created a Tunnel Album using their Monkeying Around Collection way back in March. Another fabulous release is Shadow Boxes. I always loved and got inspired by the shadow box cards that my friend Karan Gerber created using Heartfelt Creations supplies. I am so happy for my friend that her idea of shadow box cards too got recognized and manufactured by the company.
For today’s inspiration, I have a Christmas mini album to share. Don’t forget to see what rest of the design team members have created using this fabulous new release, on Heartfelt Creation’s Blog.

Other Supplies Used: White Cardstock, Festive BerrIes, Peeled Paint and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, Archival Black, Zig Clean Clear Markers, Foam tape, Red tacky tape, Seemed Binding Ribbon, Adhesive that dries clear.
Instructions: Construct 5 X 7 layered card (White) then cut designer paper for each side of each page. Distress all the edges of all pages. Sort the panels with the largest oval on top and nesting to the smallest oval. Select the papers from Festive Holly Collection that you want to use on each panel. You may want to coordinate the panels that face each other when each page is opened. To create the windows, tape down the selected designer papers back to back, align the Basic Oval Die and run through the die cutting machine. The papers were glued to all the pages on all the sides using appropriate nesting oval die, except the last page which is solid. The back side of the album has a pocket which can hold tags for journaling and photo mats. A decorative border was cut from a smooth white card stock which is then glued on the top of the tags and photo mats. On the second last page, cut some tags, layer them outwards as shown and tie a seam binding ribbon( painted using Festive Berry) to add an extra accent to the project.
