With holidays on the horizon, I've been busy creating lots of Christmas cards to share this year. One of my recent favorites this this sweet holiday snowglobe card. I love matching die and stamp combos and I love this Memory Box duo. Memory Box even has more coordinating stamps making me excited about all the fun possibilites.
Today my snowglobe holds the sweet Santa Globe stamp. I'm thinking I'll have to try making this card again and put a family photo into the globe. Wouldn't that be fun?
To start off with, the Memory Box Globe die comes in one piece. This is fine if you are just die cutting layers but I wanted to die cut a window and so I cut them apart. super easy with some strong scissors. And how cool is it that the globe comes with a gridded window for easy placement?!
Putting together the card is super easy in layers. Notice that I use a smaller separate layer of white to stamp the image on. It makes it SO much easier to line up the stamped image inside the snowglobe this way.
In order...white card base, red layer, stamped image white cardstock layer, Crystal Clear Plastic layer, Die cut window layer.
Here it is all adhered together. You can see the shine that the plastic layer adds making it look more like a glass globe.
I love stamping sentiments on tags and this little fragment is the perfect place for an "icy" ho ho ho sentiment.
For final embellishment touches, a little twine and snowflakes makes for a fun and festive design.
Have fun getting your holiday craft on and thanks for stopping by the CLASSroom!
