Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

There were people on my Christmas list that the plate of cookies I was thinking about didn’t work for. I like to give something small and preferably homemade especially to those who give gifts to my family. This year I decided the gift would be a 3D Christmas card that could be displayed, maybe even from year to year.

Here’s what I made from files by Lori Whitlock:

This is the 5×7 Bird in Tree Shadow Box Card – perfect for the nature and animal lover.

Santa

This is the 5×7 Sleigh Shadow Box Card for the one who still believes…

Bridge

Introducing the 5×7 Winter City Shadow Box Card just a beautiful scene

Nativity

And my favorite the 5×7 Nativity Shadow Box Card. Lori has a tutorial for how to assemble these cards on her YouTube channel. I will say it’s a bit tricky getting everything lined up, but they did all fit into their 5×7 envelopes, but sometimes it wasn’t as pretty folded as unfolded.

And while I’m sharing my Christmas projects from Lori Whitlock (since I’m entering the Christmas Gift Giving link up on her blog) I might as well share the Double Sliding Santa Gift Card Holder I created from Lori’s files:

Other than using some velvet paper for Santa’s beard, mustache and fur trim I find that keeping things simple with colors and textures really works well for these files. I wanted to stamp a bit to decorate the inside of the gift card holder, which I’m pretty sure the intent of the design, but other than that I just kept it simple.

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful 2015!
