Highland Mitzy Shadow Box

Hi! Today is New Release Day at Digital Delights. I made a lighted shadow box using Highland Mitzy, Scotland Background Set and Around the World Papers from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.


Digital Delights digi files:
  1.   Highland Mitzy
  2. Around the World Papers
   3. Scotland Background Set  

Santa Paperscapes Box by Dreaming Tree 3 d svg's
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir cardstock
Cardstock: green plaid, pine tree, cloud, plain white, plain green
Foam tape/pop dots, double stick tape, glue

    I started my project by uploading the Digital Delights images and papers into Design Space. Using the print then cut feature, I printed out and cut Highland Mitzy, the castle and the dog on Crafters Companion cardstock. Highland Mitzy is 4 1/4 inches tall, the castle is 4 inches tall and the dog is 2 inches tall. I printed the word, "Scotland" at 3 5/8 by 1 1/8 inches. Using a grass pattern from Cricut and the auto fill feature, I sized it to the same width as the back layer, and printed out the flower layer.

    I assembled the basic shadow box according to the directions. (Of the given layers I used only their back layer with the trees.) The finished box measures 11 inches tall by 6 1/2 inches wide by 1 7/8 inches deep. I attached the colored castle to this layer using foam tape. The next layer is the printed flower layer. I attached the finished Highland Mitzy to this layer using foam tape. This layer was attached to the box mid way between the front of the box and the back layer. The Scottie dog was attached to the front of the box. A light can be added through the opening in the back of the box.
