Hello my card making friends! I have a snow globe collection but most of mine are either everyday Disney or Halloween. I thought it would be fun to make a Valentine themed snow globe for this card.
It had been awhile since I had made a shaker card and this turned out to be a little trickier than I thought it would be because I used a slimline card which didn't give me much room to work with at the top or bottom.
I cut Ballet Slippers cardstock with the Scalloped Slimline With Hearts. I cut five more pieces the exact same way out of white cardstock. I centered the Build A Snow Globe die and cut each layer the exact same way so that when the all the white cardstock is glued together, there is a well created for the shaker pieces. My YouTube video shows it a little better than I can explain it.
For the ink blended piece, I cut the paper at 3.125" x 10.125". Using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and the Cloudy Stencil to create clouds on the upper part of the background. I cut patterned paper for the ground and used Twisted Citron to make it a little more green and then touched up the edges with Mowed Lawn. I used the same color combination for the stems and leaves for the Heart Garden Stencil. The hearts are inked with Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry.
The Copic Markers that were used are:
Mushrooms: RV11, RV13, RV14, YR20, YR21, YR23 C1
Snails & Flowers: BG000, BG02, Y02, Y18
Butterflies & Flowers: R20, R22
This would be a really quick card to make if you forego the shaker element and just have the illusion of a snow globe. I don't know what do you think?
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are well and are having a great day.
