A Wednesday hi to I have for you a super yum show box card with the introduction of the new wonderfully cute collection from Heartfelt Creations

Take an adventure on the path less traveled and lose yourself in an enchanting woodsy wonderland filled with magnificent wildlife, beautiful scenic expanses and delicate field flowers.

Heartfelt Creations invites you to explore the new Woodsy Wonderland Collection.  Step softly as to not spook the peaceful inhabitants or trample the native wildflowers as you set about exploring your surroundings.  Immerse yourself in a stunning paper collection showcasing a beautiful outdoor themed color palette of rushing river blues, orange and yellow sunset hues, grass like greens accented with the softest wildflower whites, deep purples, and posy pinks, pulled together and grounded with dark tree bark browns, sky blues and moss like greens.  Discover charming cottages, babbling brooks, and grassy fields boasting home to majestic deer, chattering squirrels, prancing skunks and frolicking foxes.  Bold stripes and crosshatch patterns will remind you of trampled wildlife trails, creating eye catching backgrounds for the tiny woodland creatures depicted on the varying sizes of premade card panels or within the three extremely detailed and realistic forest themed cling stamp sets which provide the ideal elements for creating your very own woodsy wonderland on your next paper crafting project.  Pair with the coordinating dies to create dimensional forest scenes laden with fallen tree stumps, grassy knolls, darting rabbits, scampering raccoons, decorative butterflies and song filled birds all at play in majestically treed forests!  So, breathe deeply, exhale and allow the beauty of our enchanting woodlands to bring a sense of wonder, calm and peace to your soul as you craft your cares and worries away in the tranquility of our Woodsy Wonderland Collection.

The shadowbox when opened...opening into a full woodsy wonderland of cuteness and wonder...
The finished size of this project is a little over 15 cm x 15 cm.
To make the tunnel base, take the card stock and cut x 4 15 cm x 15 cm. From 3 cut a hole into the square form a frame. The cover frame edge is 2.2 cm. The remaining two are 3 cm and 1.5 cm frame edges. The supporting box the measurements are, 15.1 cm x 15.1 cm for the base, 3 sides at 2 cm, 1 side at 2 cm + 1.5 cm. ( this is for the front frame hinge. ) Ink the edges using the different colored inks. Green inks for the ground and blue inks for the sky. Adhere all together to form a box with a hinged cover. Adhere the ribbon to the side of the box. Make a sentiment using the ‘Thinking of you‘ stamp from the Paw-fect Pooches stamp set. listed above in the product list. To make the inside; Stamp all the images from the collection with the archival ink on aquarelle paper, you can never have enough. Color the images with the watercolor pencils then die cut the images. Arrange across the openings of the frames. Checking that you will see the treetops and critters in each layer by placing on top of each other before adhering in place. ( I know it is a bother, but it is worth it, as you do not want to have to start all over again to get it right. ) Once there is a base line of tree lines and bush you can then add the critters and birds. You can trim to size the flowers and forest foliage as fillers, that is the reason why it is good idea to color and die cut extra images. What is over can always be used in other projects at a later date. Once all is glued and secure on the frames, you can adhere the frames together in a stack. Adhere two foam dots together to form one dot to give the height needed between each frame. The dot placement is three across on each side.  Because you have used ink you will need to add a spot of wet glue to the foam dots to secure the hold. Once you have adhered the entire frame together, add double sided tape to the base and sides of the box. Place the frames into the box, tie the ribbon, add the sentiment and embellish the frame front. Add a few spots of stickles here and there to add interest.

These two cute critters are adhered to the sides of the box.
The critters hide the adhesive for the ribbon.
