I made this card a while ago to learn how to make a shutter card for my class last month. I followed the directions and dimensions from Sam at MixedUpCraft. The star of this card is the beautiful Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper. I picked a piece that had glitter on it and then added some of the new Ice glitter to my snow globe.
For this card, I stamped the snow globe using gold ink, masked off around the globe, and then sponged on Night of Navy to create the night sky. In the second photo you can kind of see shimmer on the sky, that’s from the gold ink that I stamped the snow globe in. I should have let the ink dry longer but I kind of like the extra sparkle in the sky.
I love the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper! I wanted to showcase one of the cute snowmen so I just die cut it from the paper to make the snow globe. The Real Red piece is sprayed with a mixture of Frost White Shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol that I keep in a spritzer, it’s hard to see in the photo but it gives a slight shimmer to the piece. I also like how the ribbon looks like it has snowballs.
I wanted to do at least one card where I only used the stamp set. I’d also forgotten about the beautiful red glimmer paper in the holiday catalog so I used it too. It’s hard to tell in the photo but the snow globe base is stamped in Real Red and Shimmer Silver so it’s much sparkly-er in real life.
Who says snow globes need to be for winter? I made this Spring-ish card for a birthday. The little flowers in the shaker (with the sequins) where made by stamping and die cutting using Shrinky-Dink plastic.
I love white cards. I don’t know if it’s how clean they look or what but I love them. This card was inspired by a card where someone (I don’t know who) used three strips of paper for the background and I thought it would look nice if they were white and embossed.
