Happy Holidays Snow Globe

Today I decided to be creative.  Elizabeth Craft Designs has a very cute Snow Globe die set, but it is smaller than what I wanted.  I decided to create my own snow globe.

This is a 6-inch square card.  

To cover the front of the card, a 6-inch square piece of the ModaScrape Let It Snow design paper was used.  To create the round cirecle (globe) the largest Frame It/Stitched Circle die was centered on the Let It Snow design paper.  

Behind the die cut circle is a piece of white card stock that has Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.  A 6-inch square piece of white card stock was covered with Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Cool Diamond Glitter added.  Polish the glitter with your fingers.  Attach behind the die cut circle.  Attach these pieces to the front of the card.

Use a piece of the ModaScrap Wood Effects card stock and cut a base for the snow globe.  Sponge around the edges using black ink.  Use the Winter Sentiments stamp set and stamp the sentiment on the snow globe base.  Attach the base, using dimensional tape, at the bottom of the die cut circle, being sure to align the top outer edges of the base with the edge of the die cut circle.  You want the circle (globe) to appear that it is inside the base.

Use the new Krista Elves stamp set and stamp and color the Elf with gifts.  Die cut using the matching die.

Use the new Krista Christmas Kids stamp set and stamp and color the boy and girl with the gift.  Die cut using the matching die.

Use the Els Van de Burgt Studio 5-Part Pine die set and die cut one tree using silver metallic card stock.   Attach the pieces together using dimensional tape at the bottom of each branch section  Attach the tree in the snow globe toward the upper right side.

Attach the Elf on the left side of the tree with clear double sided adhesive.  Attach the children on the lower right side of the snow globe.

For a finishing touch, add silver Peel Off Sticker Corners to the upper corners of the card.
