ShadowBox Christmas Card - Lawn Fawn ChristmasDreams - CTMH Window

 Recently learned how to make Shadow Boxes out of cardstock so I thought it would be fun to create a Christmas one.

Inside for the Christmas theme is the Christmas Tree decorated, presents below the tree, Fireplace, plate of cookies with glass of milk for Santa, and 2 dogs (one to represent each of my 2 dogs). Can you see the milk & cookies? Can you see the 2 dogs?
