Holiday Snow Globe Cards

Whether you like a classic style or cute, holiday snow globes are just fun.

Especially when they are made into cards that you can send.

For my cards, I used the Snow Globe stamp and die set from The Maker’s Movement

to make two snow globe cards with two different styles.

Both of these cards could also be made into a cute little shaker cards.

Penguin Snow Globe Card

  • Stamp the penguin on watercolor paper with a black permanent ink pad.
  • Use markers, colored pencils, or watercolor to color in the image.
  • Use the coordinating die to cut out the penguin.
  • I like to use the Xyron Creative Station* to add adhesive onto my decorative scrapbook paper before die-cutting  fine detailed pieces. It makes adhering to detailed pieces like the snow globe outline so much easier to adhere to.
  • For the base of the snow globe.  I adhered a small piece of woodgrain scrapbook paper onto a small piece of double-sided adhesive craft foam.
  • Run the woodgrain/foam piece through the Crossover II die-cutting machine* to create a think foam base.
  • Add a couple of thin foam mounting squares* to the back of the penguin before adding him to the card.
  • Adhere all your pieces together and stamp a little greeting on the top of the card.

Winter Wonderland Snow Globe Card

Create  the soft look of freshly fallen snow with this Winter  Wonderland Snow Globe.

I love how different this card is.  (can you tell it’s my favorite)

It’s made similar to the Penguin Snow Globe.  The two trees in the middle are popped up using

thin foam mounting squares* to give the forest dimension.

  • Align the ship die over the ship image.  Place a piece of washi tape or removable tape over the die to keep it in place.  Run the die through the Crossover II Die Cutting Machine* to cut out the image.

Aren’t these are the cutest little ships?

You can add a skull and crossbones to the sail, or a sweet little heart. (included in the set)

You will need to cut out several pieces to create the Message in a Bottle Shaker Tag.

  • Cut a bottle shape out of clear acetate and a wavy-look scrapbook paper.
  • Place a small piece of distressed woodgrain look scrapbook paper into the Xyron Create-A-Sticker, Sticker Maker* to add adhesive to the backside of the woodgrain paper. Die-cut the woodgrain paper using the Bottle Frame Die. Creating a paper bottle frame sticker makes it easier to use when it comes time to place on the acetate.
  • Cut a second Bottle Frame using the double-sided adhesive foam sheet.

  • Remove one side of the protective blue coating from the acetate bottle.
  • Align and stick bottle frame sticker onto the acetate.
  • Remove the second side of the protective blue coating from the acetate.
  • Use a dryer sheet and rub on the blue wavy bottle die-cut to eliminate static created from the acetate.
  • Align and stick craft foam bottle frame onto the blue bottle die-cut.
  • Adhere die-cut ship in the center of the bottle.

I found a paper that replicated the look of cork.  I used that paper and cut several layers using the cork shaped die and glued them together to create a thick dimensional cork. I made the cork the same thickness of the foam.

  • Cut a piece off the top of the craft foam bottle to make room to place the cork.
  • Add Ice Cube Sprinkles (from the mixed drinks shaker sprinkles) into the well of the bottle frame.
  • Remove the protective coating of the craft foam frame and carefully place the acetate frame over the bottle.

  • Stamp your message on a piece of white cardstock and cut out using the banner die.
  • Punch a small hole at the end. Tie the banner die cut around the neck of the bottle with a piece of red and white twine.

If you’re not into Pirates and Pirate Ships…

the Message in a Bottle Die also makes a perfect Congratulations tag.

Use it for a Wedding, Anniversary, New Home, or Retirement.

Directions:

  • Stamp the bunny image onto a 2″ x 3″ piece of white heavyweight acrylic paper.
  • Start coloring the edges of the bunny with the saddle brown marker and blend the colors together using the light sand marker.  ( Stamping on non-porous white card-stock helps the markers blend easier.)
  • Highlight the bunny cheeks and inside of the ears with the baby pink marker.

  • Stamp a “heart balloon” and “small banner” onto a piece of  “Sunday dress” (purple) scrapbook paper.  Stamp the word “hugs” in the center of the balloon.  Stamp the words “hopping you all the best” centered inside the banner.
  • Align stamped heart image with the heart die and cut using the Crossover II*.
  • Cut the banner image using scissors.
  • Cut a 2 ½” x 3 ½” piece of “baby bunnies” (small flowers) scrapbook paper.  Cut the top of the paper with the wavy die and the Crossover II*
  • Adhere the small flowers layer onto  a 3 ½” x 4 ¾” piece of “blue skies” scrapbook paper.

  • Cut a 2 ¾” x 3 ¾”striped layer and round the corners of the layer using a rounded corner punch*.  Adhere onto the small layer onto the previous layers.
  • Add 3-D foam mounting squares onto the back of the bunny and balloon and adhere to the front of the striped layer.  Adhere the small banner using the tape runner to the lower right section of the striped layer (overhanging the edge).
  • Glue small hearts onto the front of the card using craft glue.

  • Adhere the layers onto a thin turquoise layer and then onto a 4″ x 5 ¼” piece of “Sunday dress” (purple gingham) scrapbook paper.  Adhere onto a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” white card-stock card folded vertically.  Tie a sheer ribbon around the top of the card.

    

Happy Harvest Wreath Card

Happy Harvest Wreath Card

Sometimes when I’m creating a card…the process is easy and it works out the first time.

Most of the time it takes a couple of tries to get the look I want.

Yesterday, was no exception.

I was playing with my new Hello Fall Stamp and Die Set from Maker’s Movement,

trying to come up with a quick and simple card to share.

I’ll be honest, It took me all afternoon to come up with this one card.

I had an image in my mind of what I wanted the card to look like and I wasn’t quite getting it.

Usually when it comes to creating fall cards, I use traditional Autumn colors.

After setting the finish card down and coming back to it a couple times…

I decided to change the background to something softer.

Not my usual fall colors, but, I like it much better.  (I hope you do too.)

  • Draw a light circle using a pencil on a piece of watercolor paper.
  • Using my tombow markers I colored directly onto the clear acrylic stamp.
  • Center the small wheat stamp on the circle line and stamp.
  • Continue until the circle is complete.
  • Cut wreath out with a bigger circle.

  • Stamp the words “Happy Harvest” and cut out using the matching die.  Using thin foam mounting squares to raise the words,  mount “Happy Harvest” onto the corner of the wreath.
  • Create greenery by coloring onto the small leaf stamp using a darker green marker and coloring in with a lighter marker.  Cut around image and layer under the “Happy Harvest” words.
  • Add additional soft layers and ribbon to complete the look.
