Let's prance votive

 For the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: shimmer and shine.
The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: pop it up showcasing Lawn Fawn.

I made a fold flat votive/shadowbox/card thing that is big enough to hold a (electric) tealight.
For it you need to strips of card 8,5inch x 4inch. Score at 1/2"and 4 1/2"on both strips on the long side. Then I like to notch the "catches".
Then I cut a window out of one of the sides. Any shape will do.
For the hills I used the Lawn Fawn forest border and My Favorite Things Snowdrift and I cut it from white glitter paper. I made it more sturdy by sticking it onto card first, then diecut.
The strips are 5 inches and I score at 1/2 inch and 4 1/2" so it will fit and it will have flaps to stick them down.

I'm kind of making my own version of the Lawn Fawn shadowboxes as I don 't have the die.
Also wouldn't be big enough to fit the tealight hehe

I used white glitter for the Monday challenge and also because it would look like sparkling snow.

The reindeer are from Clearly Besotted (let's prance) I stamped them on Crafter's Companion Neenah paper with SSS intense black ink and colored them with Spectrum noir markers. I gave them Christmas light noses (red, yellow and blue) as there can be only one Rudolph ;-). Cut them out with the coordinating dies.
Popped them up with a bit of acetate and gluedots and attached them to the scene. Popped a tealight behind it.

You can't see it, I think, but I chose this particular scrap paper as there's tons of mini reindeer on it, that I thought would look like there's more in the background.
