Peace on Earth

Working my way through my seasonal crafty stash and this time I've tried combining a large snow globe die with a magazine freebie set from 2018.  I wasn't quite sure how they would work together so I had a sort of dummy run using some odd pieces of card and paper to try out a few ideas and I finally decided that I needed a circular die as well which would fit behind the aperture in the globe (which cuts only one layer) so the various layers of the scene were die cut from three separate circles before being layered up onto a grey whole circle (the sky).  This was finally assembled using a mixture of thin foam pads and glue to account for the different thickness.  The words were stamped and embossed in silver.  I'm so pleased that the idea which I had in my head actually worked out and I think there could be a few variations being made using other small die sets within the snow globe.

Snow Globe - die from Crealies a few years ago
Nativity Scene - freebie die set from magazine Christmas 2018


  1. Love your snow globe card Val...reminds me of when I was a child I loved watching the snow falling and wishing would have snow...


  2. What a fantastic card Val, I love those dies, it's a shame they are from 2018. Well on second thoughts just as well they are from 2018 or I would be out hunting for them now.
