Christmas Snow Globe Card by Sue Smyth

Hi! Couture Creations Designer Sue Smyth here today. Its that time of year again when we like to make small gifts and special cards for those friends and family who have everything. This is a project that I have done many times before and it always looks stunning. Using an Acetate sheet, blue cardstock and Couture Creations Embossing folders, you can create your very own magical snow globe.

This time I have used Couture Creations Embossing folders to create a snowy scene suitable for any snow globe.

I have used loads of glitter and white cardstock along with a reindeer punch.

Use the template below, print out on an A4 sheet. Cut out the semicircle from blue cardstock and emboss with the Celebrate Embossing Folder.

Brush gesso over the embossed cardstock and spray with Dragonfly and Mallard Glimmer Mists.

Cut out the base from blue cardstock and emboss with the Celebrate Embossing Folder as well. Apply gesso and mist as above. Allow to dry 

Attach both ends, spray with spray adhesive and sprinkle with lots of  white glitter.

Attach base 1 to base 2 with masking tape.

Use template for globe, and cut on the fold to form the folded globe top. Swipe with gesso and allow to dry.

Emboss a small circle with the Reindeer Games Embossing Folder, wipe with gesso and spritz with Glimmer Mists. Highlight the image with Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour and allow to dry.

Hand-cut trees and punch out a reindeer to create a snowy scene. Cut a rough circle of white cardstock, scrunch up, spray with adhesive and sprinkle with glitter. Allow to dry. Glue the trees and deer onto this circle and attach to the snow globe base. 

Decorate the front of the snow globe with paper snowflakes and Seaspray Self-Adhesive Gemstones. Cut out the embossed message of your choice, from a piece of white cardstock embossed with the A Magical Time Embossing Folder, and ink with blue ink, scrunch a bit and glue to front. Use a white paint pen to apply small flakes around the edge of globe. Add pearlized sequin stars around the edge of globe and white fibers around the base.
