I can't believe it's the week before Christmas!
This is a quicky post before I tackle wrapping presents. Today I'd like to share a card I made for Crafter's Companion
I've always had an affinity for snow globes. I used to collect them as a kid. Sadly, over the years, one-too-many moves has rendered many of them broken. Note: If you live in Colorado...do NOT store them in an unheated storage unit in winter. Let's just say it was a hands-on lessen in the physics of freezing water.
Ice expands, ya know?
I still have a few that are intact. But only a very few.
So, today I'm paying homage to those little glass bubbles of joy. This is one snow globe that is guaranteed NOT to break!
I used an adorable Barkley stamp from Crafter's Companion and colored both him and the base of the snow globe up with Spectrum Aqua makers! The "snow" inside the globe is a combo of micro glitter, white crystal glitter, and sequins.
Shaker cards like this are SUPER easy to make. I used a rectangular piece of craft foam (6mm thick) and cut a circle that is slightly larger than the stamped globe. I mounted it over my colored background image of Barkley and added the sprinkly/shaky glittery stuff.
I cut out the glass globe part of the cover image and adhered a piece of transparency under the cut-out part to make a transparent window. Then I stuck the whole thing over the foam base...and voila! You got a snow shaker!
