First Guest Design Team Post and Shadow Box Card!!

Hey Everyone!! Happy "Hump" day to you all!! I hope your day is off to a great start! For today's post, I have a card I created as part of my first Guest Design Team project for the Whimsy Stamps blog.
I made my first ever shadow box card using two digi stamps: "StampArt Designs" and "Owl Ways Winter  " from the Whimsy Stamps store.
It was pretty simple to make with the link I found on Pinterest.
Here's the link with full details on how you can recreate this card for yourself:
And here's the pic of the card I made:

Using the measurements and instructions from the link, I made the base of my shadow box card out of a sheet of dark green card stock.
Once I had the card base assembled, I cut some patterned card stocks from a DCWV Stack 8 pack and adhered them to the inside and outside of the card.

For the images, I printed them off onto a sheet of white card stock.
I used my Copics and Bic MarkIt markers to color them in.
Here's a rundown of the colors I used:

-Skin: E11, E13, R20
- Hair: E13, E15, E18
- Shirt and Shoes: RV14, RV19, YG03, Key Lime
- Pants: Oceanview Blue, Blue Skies Blue, Deep Sea Blue
- Apron: C03
- Owl's Body and Branch: E15, E18
- Santa's Hat: Rambunctious Red, Honey Brown
- Scarf::  YG03, Key Lime
- Beak and Claws: Summer Melon, YR04

Once I had the images colored in, I fussy cut them out.
For the owl, I glued him onto a 2 1/4 x 2 1/4" square of white card stock.
I inked the background with some Distress Ink In Faded Jeans, added a tree and stars.
I adhered it to the inside of the card, added a white 1/8" frame and some acetate to create a window.
I stamped a light garland in a light brown ink and colored the bulbs using Rambunctious Red and Forest Green.
I fussy cut the bulbs out and glued them around the window frame.

For the outside of the card, I stamped ornaments onto white card stock, colored them in, fussy cut them and glued them to some gold embroidery floss.
I added a few highlights with my white gel pen and adhered them to the top of the card base.

To finish the card off, I added the StampArt Designs image to the front of the card, some gold sequins and a sentiment banner that reads "Season's Greetings".

And voila!! card complete!!

I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
