Sledging in a Snow Globe

Hey, hope all is well with you and yours.

Another Christmas card today I’m afraid but I made this base ages ago and just had to use it.

Now, just some trivial information for you, I am an avid collector of snow globes.  There I said it.  I have too many to count and I absolutely love them.   I know that I am old enough to know better but I just can’t help it.  So therefore a snow globe card was inevitable.

I started by cutting some Centura Pearl card into 2 circles with my EK Success Circle Scissor.  I then embossed one of the pieces with an old snowflake Cuttlebug folder I have and then inked with Stormy Sky DI.  To create a little more dimension I added some silver glitter and liquid pearls.  The base is a Spellbinders Label 22 that I cut it in half.  I then sparkled it up using a snowflake background stamp and WOW embossing powder (mmmmmmm sparkly).

The sentiments are both LOTV as is the image which I coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers.  The snow is torn pieces of paper covered (well covered) with Pinflair Ice Diamond and Snow Dust.

And there you go, some bakers twine and we are all done.

See ya!

Smiling always (!)!

Scribbly hugs
