Instructions : 1. For the snow globe background use any snowy pattern paper or make your own with stamps. Stamp random pattern with all three snow flakes with Versamark ink to the white card stock.

18. Attach rectangle on top of the base with foam tape on center and glue on the edges.
19. Fold brown approx 4 x 10" card stock in half and trace the snow globe shape to your easel card base. Move the template a bit up so you won't cut the fold line. Cut it out. Make the score line about 2"from the bottom of the front piece. Put some strong glue or Tear-ific tape to the part what is below the score line. Attach previously made snow globe card.
