Simple and Sweet Snowglobe Christmas Card


This is a sample Christmas card I made for my sister using Sweet Snowglobe from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It’s a single stamp, offered for $8.95 and it coordinates with the Sweet Treat Cups. Since this is going to be mailed, I decided not to use the cups (postage for 40+ cards would be crazy!)

For the base, I used Real Red Textured Card stock, layered with Old Olive and Whisper White. The top corners of each layer were rounded with the Corner Chomper, but you could also use the Corner Rounder Punch on the two single layers.

I used the SU Markers to color the snowglobe (Real Red, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Old Olive). Then, I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the snowy parts with the 2 Way Glue Pen.

To continue the glittery theme, I added 3 Glimmer Brads (in Real Red, Old Olive, and Soft Suede–Brights and Neutrals collection). By using the cropadile, I made sure each brad would be lined up.

Across the top, I stamped “Merry Christmas” from Christmas Greetings in Real Red ink, paper pierced below it and added some Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon.

The White layer is adhered with stampin dimensionals to the base.

And yes, I know it’s September and I just made a Christmas card. It’s a sickness!

Snow Buddies Snow Globe

This is a CASE from the back cover of the Holiday Mini Catalog. I changed a few things, like the ribbon and base, and added a rub on sentiment. SO CUTE!

Directions: The sample didn’t come with directions so I winged it.

1. First, I used my Coluzzle (2nd to largest ring) to cut Bashful Blue card stock, folded at the top. Line up the Coluzzle cutting ring just above the fold to preserve it.

2. Cut another circle from a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock using the same 2nd to largest ring. Cut the cirle in half to make the base of the snow globe.

3. Glue the base pieces to the bottom of the snow globe and the back side as well. Make sure to line them up or your card won’t close properly!

4. Stamp the snowflakes onto the front of the Bashful Blue card stock. I used Vesamark and White Embossing Powder.

5. Stamp the snowmen from Snow Buddies onto Whisper White using Black Stazon. Color them in–I used Markers. Trim them out with paper snips.

6. Tie some ribbon around the base of the snow globe, here I used Very Vanilla 5/8″ Grosgrain.

7. Adhere your snowmen using dimensionals to the front of the snow globe.

8. Add a greeting to the base. I used Chit Chat Rub On in white on Bashful Blue card stock I punched out using Modern Label Punch.
