This week, the project for the Cutting Cafe is a free week. So I chose to use the awesome Snow Globe Shaped Card Template. I made and sold a bunch of these for Christmas. They can be used year round with lots of different things inside. Think of the possibilities. New Year's, Valentine's Day, 4th of July, etc.
For this card, I used the Snow Globe Template from the Cutting Cafe. You can find the link for the template and the instructions to make a snow globe shaped card here.http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com/the_cutting_cafe/2011/12/snow-globe-shaped-cardtemplate-cutting-file.html
The image I used was from a package of Thomas Kinkaid Christmas Cards. They were pre-glittered and gave it such a pretty look to it. Very old fashioned.
If you positioned the pattern differently on the back of the Christmas Card and trace, you get different parts of the card which give you several varied appearances for your designs.
It is hard to see, but the images are very glittery.
I finished each of the different Snow globes with branches in various colors, papers, vellums, etc. and ribbons or flowers. It gives them the appearance of having Christmas greenery around the base. This is done using the Martha Stewart Branch punch. As you can see, there are many things you can do with this pattern.
Thank you for taking the time to look and a Happy and Blessed New Year to You all! God Bless!
