I went with a snow globe shape for my little shaker card. The wonderful winter scene was stamped and colored with Copics then I added stickles to the snow for some sparkle and white dots to the sky for falling snow. While that was drying, I die cut a snow globe out of silver card stock and a larger circle to go with it. I used another size circle to cut a piece of acetate for the front. It is big enough to fit between the smaller and larger silver circles so the edges will be covered. For fun, I die cut a snowy border die out of white then snipped off a bunch of the snowflakes and sandwiched them between the layers.
I traced around the snow globe shape on my folded white card and fussy cut it in the same shape. After cutting the scene into a circle, I elevated the acetate layers, making sure it had silicone sealant all the way around, then added some tiny silver beads and round silver confetti (not too much..I didn’t want it cover up the scene) before sealing them together. A silver string and bow were added to the top. So it’s a card…it’s a snow globe…it’s a shaker ornament to hang on the tree! These are the Copics I used to color the scene.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please stop by and visit all of the Design Team blogs! You’ll be amazed!
