Instructions: This project measures 5 1/4” x 4 1/4” (13.2cm x 11cm) when finished. To make the snow globe card base, use the white card stock and the snow globe die cut two outer shapes. Taking the scor-pal make a fold at the top of the globe on one of the die cuts for the fold. Apply double sided tape to this then adhere the two die cuts together. This will form your tent fold globe base.
Using the silver card stock die cut the snow globe frame and adhere to the card front. Taking the centre of the snow globe, the large snowflake shape die, cut this and bring the cornflower blue colour onto the shape. Apply clear drying glue to the outside of this frame then glitter. Leave to dry then adhere in place to the snow globe.
Make the embellishments for this card as follows: The trees, x2. The colours used for the trees are leaf green, olive and sepia. The leaves in the trees are highlighted with the crystal lacquer. The bakery house, x1 stamped and x4 from cardboard. The colour used is sepia, red geranium and cornflower blue and finished with the crystal lacquer. The truck x1 stamped and x4 from cardboard. Coloured with cornflower blue, red geranium, and sepia. Finished with the crystal lacquer. The lamp posts are stamped x2 and from cardboard x6. The colours are red geranium, tiger lily and sepia. The glass is finished with the crystal lacquer. The leaves, x2, the colour used is leaf green. The poinsettias, each flower has 3 layers. For this card, x6 smaller sized petals. The colours used are tiger lily and bay blue. Once they have been shaped with the matching flower mold and adhered together, clear drying glue is applied with the hydra sponge and then dipped into the glitter. Once the glitter is dry and excess tapped away, glue is applied to the flower centre then the prills are sprinkled onto the glue. Once the glue has dried the flower is tapped so the excess prills will come away. Now they can be adhered to the project.
Adhere all the embellishments to the globe as shown using clear drying glue and the hot glue gun. The flowers are placed to the left side of the globe round then the sentiment made into a banner is placed under the flower and leaf cluster. The sentiment is stamped by masking the sentiment, so you get “Cozy Wishes” instead of “Cozy Winter Wishes”.
