Instructions : 1. Using die cutting equipment, cut out three snow globes – two white & one brown. Stamp Snow Family using Black Memento ink onto one of the Solar White cardstock (cs) globes. Color Snow Family with Copic Markers.
2. Using the glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter, highlight the snow and some of the trim pieces on the snow family’s clothes. Outline the entire circle with the glue pen & Sparkling Snow glitter as well and also add random “snow dots” all over the snow globe.
3. Use the glue pen and Bridal glitter to add snow piles where shown on the stamped image (on the tree and on their hats).
4. Cut a third snow globe (or just a matching circle) from embossable acetate. Coat acetate thoroughly with static free bag and then using Versamark ink, stamp the snowflakes all around the outside of the circle (leave the center empty so you’ll see the image a little bit better). Emboss with white detail embossing powder – heat as you normally do being careful not to overheat the acetate and warp it. Set aside.
5. From the brown snow globe, cut off the base portion and also a small ball for the top. Emboss these pieces with a wood grain embossing folder.
6. Note: the snow globe “glass” (acetate piece) will be attached with the embossing to the inside so it looks like the snowflakes are inside the globe. Use Tearific Tape to attach the top of the snow globe glass and the bottom of the glass (under where the brown “wood” pieces will be). Attach the wood pieces over top of the glass using Tearific Tape.
7. Stamp the snow family saying using black pigment ink and embossing with clear detail embossing powder. Cut out & emboss using a Spellbinder Oval.
8. Using glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter, outline the saying. Attach the saying to the wood base using Tearific Tape.
9. Put the second white snow globe behind the finished piece and use the snowflake brad to attach the two sections together. This will give you the inside to your card.
