Christmas Snow Globe

Julie Warner -

Congrats again to Marcie, the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast (FS298)! This time I chose her Tree Trimming Christmas to case. I kept the Christmas tree theme, colors and big circle but changed the layout, put my tree inside my circle to make a snow globe and added some trimmings w/ the die cut holly and cut out pine cones.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I really wanted a big snow globe card and when I saw Marcie’s Christmas tree card, I thought I’d try putting my tree inside the globe. The music bg was stamped w/ the sand ink and I used deckle scissors to cut it out. I die cut the snow globe out of white and again out of metallic gold. I used 2 circle dies to cut out the gold rim for my globe (I needed a way to hold the acetate down). On the white one, I stamped the tree and presents, masked them then using a stamp positioner, I stamped the music so it would line up w/ the bg…as if you’re really seeing thru the glass globe. The the greeting was added and instead of worrying w/ loose glitter, I just smeared stickles on the tree and presents. After it dried, I added the acetate and gold rim and attached it to my card. The die cut holly and cut out pine cones were added for trimmings. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
