For today’s project, we’re going to do something different with one of our gorgeous card kits! We’re going to use the components of the Christmas Layered Scenes Card Kit to create an amazing layered scene, but on a scrapbook page! We love that there are so many different ways to use our card kits, all you need is a little imagination!
Grab your Christmas Layered Scenes Card Kit and a favorite photo or two and let’s get started!

If you have access to a Cricut cutting machine, steps 1-4 are prepared to cut at the link below. Before cutting on your Cricut machine, be sure to manually center each design on the mat in design space.
- Draw a decorative window shape on the back of the 12”x 12” silver and gold patterned paper, leaving approximately 1” on each side.
- Using the craft knife, cut along the pencil lines.
- Using the silver and gold pattern as a guide, trace the design on two of the pieces of chipboard, making identical cuts.
- Draw a similar shape on the blue metallic cardstock using the silver patterned frame as a guide. Draw the shape approximately ¼” away from the silver frame on each side. Cut with a craft knife.
- Cut the striped paper into ¾” long strips. Cut the cardstock perpendicular to the striped pattern.
- To make the ruffles:
- Create a wave in each strip by curving the paper half way around the pencil in opposite directions.
- Working in sections, secure the “valleys” of each wave along the inner edge of one of the cut pieces of cardstock using double-sided adhesive or glue. Make sure the ruffles overlap the edge by approximately ½”.
- Secure the edges on the cardstock with clear tape.
- Using the Empress and Mini Christmas Botanical dies, die cut the following:
- 4 sets of snowflakes from the pearl metallic cardstock
- 5 sets of pine needles from the pearl metallic cardstock
- 2 sets of snowflakes from the gold foil cardstock
- 2 sets of snowflakes from the silver shiny foil cardstock
- Punch out the Christmas layers.
- Using double-sided adhesive, attach the silver glitter cardstock to one piece of 12”x 12” chipboard.
- On the right side of the layout, attach the Christmas layers with foam squares in the following order from bottom to top: D1, D2, A1, C1, C2, A2. Leave approximately 1” of space on the right side of the layout and ½” of space on the bottom of the layout.
3. Adhere two silver, one gold and one pearl snowflakes on the base of the layout using foam squares.
4. Attach the photo to the gold foil photo border with double-sided adhesive.
5. Adhere the photo with border to the left side of the layout using foam square adhesive.
6. Attach the sentiment sticker to the bottom left corner of the photo.
7. Attach the ruffle chipboard frame using stacks of foam squares.
8. Attach the die cut pine needles along the bottom of the layout, tucking under the ruffle layer slightly.
9. Adhere the 2nd chipboard cut out layer to the blue metallic cardstock layer and the silver and gold patterned cardstock layer using double sided adhesive.
10. Assemble the frame with the chipboard on the bottom, then the blue metallic layer, and the silver and gold layer on top.
11. Attach the frame using stacks of foam adhesive.
12. Adhere the remaining snowflakes using foam square adhesive.
13. Attach the journaling tag to the bottom right corner of the layout.
