Snow Globe

Upright Photo
I was asked to be a Guest Designer for Through the Craftroom Door Anything Goes Challenge Blog for this week.  Patties Creations on Etsy is sponsoring this challenge & has provided me with this digi Polar Bear Snow Globe for my project.  This card will also be published in the next edition of the Jan/Feb issue of TTCRD magazine.

Here is the process for this card:
  • The digi image was printed out three times on Neenah's Solar White /Classic Crest, 80 lb. Cover Stock, once on the Neenah "Desert Storm" CS of the base card & once on a wood grain sheet from PhotoPlay's "Campfire & Lakeside" 6x6 paper pad to create the Snow Globe's base.
  • An Exacto Knife was used to cut out the inside of the globe
  • Background inside the globe is a Handcrafted paper from Craft Perfect by Tonic Studios "Hailstorm" in light blue.  It was cut slightly larger than the Globe & glued to the front panel of the base card
  •  Copics used on the three images of the bear as needed included C00, 1 & 3; E33, 41, 43; & B91 
  • The bears were fussy cut, sculpted and layered using foam tape for the rounded areas and "attached" to the bear or background with Art Glitter Designer Adhesive as appropriate.  He was then placed on the globe background.
  • The perimeter was sealed with foam tape and clear extra small beads & blue sequins were added before sealing the panel to the card base.
  • Versafine Clear & white detail EP was used to stamp and emboss the sentiment from Paper Wishes: Hot Off the Press "Stockings" Die & Stamp Set.
  • A bow was tied in a silvery blue ribbon and attached around the base.

Create wildly and color with abandon!
