It's a Snow Globe Kind of Christmas

Oh yeah....it's the 1st, so you know what that means...RELEASE DAY at DOODLE PANTRY! Laurie has some fabulous sets for us this month. Here is the card I made.


I had soooo much fun making this card. I used images from two of the new released sets this month, Snow Globe Gala and Snowhorse Charlie. So, to start, I brought the PRE-COLORED snow globe into my Silhouette Cameo. I traced the snow globe and then did an offset. I did a mirror image of the offset and then overlapped the image a little at the base and on the globe and welded the two together. This created the snow globe base card. I still had the trace on the pre-colored globe. I used a circle cut line for the center and then brought Charlie Snowhorse into the Silhouette. I centered him at the base of the globe in the circle cut and then did a print and cut on my Silhouette. I also did a cut of the globe using a piece of acetate. I colored the background of the insert and the outer edge of the globe using Copic marker B0000. I used a pre-colored version of Charlie Snowhorse and then colored his body with C0 and C2. Using removable tape, I taped the globe to the base and then attached the insert into the middle, then removed the globe. I added white snowflakes and 2 green trees to the insert. I used large foam dots to then attached the globe on top. The sentiment is from Snow Globe Gala and I printed it on white card stock and used green ink to distress it. I also used the same ink to distress the card base. I added two white snowflakes and green crystals in the center to finish it off. Here are images of the two sets used:
