Snow Globe Bears

Hello there, you would think that by now I would have finished making Christmas cards wouldn't you? Well no, I am still making them. In fact, I only started last week! (that's one of the bad things about being unwell during this time of year). This is the card that I made for my mum. I really love the look of the MFT Snow Globe and I thought the Bitty Bears would look adorable inside.
 

I started off with a piece of Bristol cardstock that was cut using the second largest die in the A2 Stitched Rectangles Set 1 Dies. I lightly applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then spritzed with a little water. Once dry, I cut the Snow Globe die from it. I then cut some snow banks using the Snow Drifts dies and cut these in to the snow globe piece too, so that it created one entire scene across the card and in the snow globe.
 
 
I took the Bitty Bears and stamped these on to white cardstock and coloured them using Copic Markers. I then fussy cut them out with scissors. I took the Scenic Snow Globe Die and cut this from white cardstock. I took the trees and coloured with Copic Markers. I took the snow globe panel and adhered this to the centre of a grey card base. I then assembled my scene that will be inside the snow globe. I added in some Diamond Dust and then added the Dome Shaker Pouch on top with Scor Tape.
 
 
I took the original panel that the snow globe was cut out of and added this on to to the card base around the snow globe portion, I also added the snow banks back in. I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments set on to more grey cardstock and then cut this out with the bottom portion of the Snow Globe Die. This was then added to the card with foam tape.

  1. They do look great, those shaker pouches! I love the snow you’ve added to it - just so shiny too. All Christmas cards should have some sparkle :) Glad you’ve got caught up and are starting to feel better too. I have two left to make and can’t find any mojo whatsoever..... here’s hoping it arrives soon! Xxx
