Shake Your Snow Globe

Snow Globe Shaker-Front

This snow globe is filled with pearlessense sequins and silver star sequins and a hint of snow glitter.  I was inspired by a number of snow globe stamp and die set project cards by a variety of companies, but in the end, I made the card with affordable alternatives that I had on hand.

I stamped the pine boughs and red berry branches on a stamping platform, turning the card four times and then changing color ink and stamp for the next layer and once more for the final color and stamp change.

Next, I cut out the opening for the plastic shaker globe from the stamped card. I then stamped and cut out the house, snow man and trees. Using white glitter paper to cut the two snowy hills, I attached the house, trees and snowman using foam squares.

Assembling the globe: I added a few white and silver sequins and a hint of fine snow glitter. (I find the that glitter clings to most of the surfaces inside the globe and a hint gives a sparkle without fogging up the globe.) Using clear removable tape, I sealed the back of the globe with the house and hills which were attached to the stamped globe cut-out. Once the globe was sealed, it was placed into the stamped card with the globe cut out.

The red and white background paper, heavy white card stock with the red sentiment stamped on it and the red globe base where all recycled from junk mail, and packaging. A ribbon was taped to the back of the pine boughs stamped card before it was adhered with double-sided tape to the card base. The “Magical Christmas wishes” and red globe base were attached using foam squares.

The inside sentiment is from an old Kaisercraft clear stamp set that I was unable to find a link for.
