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.

Golden Ornaments

I have a feeling I’m going to be skipping over Fall cards and crafts this year because the Christmas stuff from SU is just so cool! This stamp set is called Delightful Decorations. I stamped the ornaments on Whisper White with Versamark and embossed them with Gold Embossing Powder. The bow/string stamp is from Berry Christmas but I think it goes great with this set too! I stamped the string in Riding Hood Red ink.

The card base is Real Red, layered with two pieces of Christmas Cocoa DSP. The DSP is so beautiful–many of the papers have a shimmery effect and the Soft suede looks almost gold in some of the papers.
