Christmas Snow Globe – Card & Tag

Happy Christmas Eve…hope you are enjoying it…even if you don’t celebrate Christmas,it is usually a holiday for most so is quite a happy and/or relaxing time..I always think of the emergency services employees like doctors,nurses,police,paramedics,fire fighters and such at this time and am always thankful for them as they work on the days everyone else are having a great time…
Today I’m sharing a card and a tag with the same theme….a snow globe..now when I made the card,I did not have the dies yet but I did use the shaker dies to create the tag…

The card base is a very light aqua blue and I chose a foil print DSP by Stampin Up! for the top layer for a bit of a shiny background…

On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the snow globe,sponged in some distress inks for the background as well as Santa’s sleigh,trees and snow…I stamped and coloured in the little houses on a separate piece of cardstock and added some glossy accents on it…I also used glossy accents on the stamped sentiment at the base of the snow globe…

To embellish this card I have used silver sequins in various sizes…

I didn’t get the coordinating dies for the snow globe stamp set but I did get the additional coordinating shaker die…although I didn’t create a shaker snow globe in either of these projects..
I die cut a white base for the snow globe and a blue glitter panel for the background….another white die cut for the snow ground and a silver glitter outside frame on which I adhered the little ribbon loop for the tag…
I stamped and die cut the little birdies and added them to the card as well as the sentiment panel which I stamped on blue foil cardstock..

I have never used Kraft cardstock for a Christmas card before so thought it would be a good idea to try out one of them…
The card base is plain white and the top layer is cut to size from Kraft cardstock…I have rounded two opposite edges of the card and the top layer using a corner rounder punch…
Using black ink and the winter sparrows stamp set by Lawn Fawn,I repeat stamped the images to fill the top layer…then using my Spectrum Noir markers I coloured in all the sparrows…I also used a white gel pen for colouring in…
Once the top layer was stamped and coloured in,I stamped a part of the sentiment on a white glitter cardstock banner and die cut the word wished from the same cardstock and adhered then to the card…
Finally I used a few snowflake sequins to embellish my card…
Thanks for visiting today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!
