Hello everyone. I’m thrilled and honoured to be back as guest designer for the September challenge at Christmas Craft Creations (CCC). Their fun theme this month is Shaped Card.
Snowglobe Bases dies from Memory Box (MB), I was eager to put it to work. Here's my card.
To start, the largest snowglobe base was die cut from a scrap of X-Press It cardstock and coloured in with Copic markers. The bear image and tree from Mama Elephant A Beary Christmas was in my stash. I had stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock and coloured with Copic markers during Kathy’s daily marker coloring challenge. I just added the “swirling snow” trying to create that look when a snowglobe is shaken up... the idea looked better in my head. 😂 Added snow with a white gel pen then die cut out with the largest circle die from MB Circle Basics.
The same circle die was then used to partial die cut from a top folding white card base. Made sure the cutting edge extended past the folded edge and stopped short of the bottom cutting edge. I was a little worried the wafer thin die wouldn’t cut through two layers of thick cardstock, but luckily it did. Traced the snowglobe base onto the card base before fussy cutting out. Heat embossed the sentiment from My Favorite Things Bitty Holiday Wishes with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. Took the largest and second largest circle dies from Circle Basics to create a circle frame from a scrap of mixed media paper. Assembled the card to approximately 4.25"x4-7/8" finished size.
I was pleasantly surprised how well this turned out... even my hubby (who couldn’t care less about cards), said he liked it! So are you ready to join in the fun? For more inspirations from the design team, head on over to the challenge post HERE. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.
