Another Snow Globe Variation

When I got the snow globe  set I stamped and die cut four of them and have gradually been making them into cards of slightly varying design.  I admire people who can happily 'batch make' cards all the same but that method isn't really favourite with me and I hardly ever knowingly repeat a card design.  For this one I again stamped the bottom part of the globe onto coloured card, die cut as a whole and then fussy cut the base.  I have quite a few odd circles of card which are left over from die cutting frames and so on and the white one has been embossed with snowflakes,  Some background paper was printed onto lustre white heavy paper and a sentiment was die cut with more of my scraps of matching card.

Background - printed using Crafter's Companion CD free with their magazine

Still in Seasonal Production

Well I'm not sure where the week has gone since I last posted here but here is a quick look at another card from my Christmas collection for this year.  It's another version of the snow globe with a different scene and this time I stamped the base of the globe onto coloured card and cut it out rather than colouring the base with pens - quicker in the long run I found.  I added a banner and a die cut poinsettia along with a simple greeting.
