A winter card with snow globe

 Hello everyone!

I am totally a person for warm and sunny weather. In winter, when it's snowing, an icy wind is blowing I love to look out my window and enjoy the nature but I don't really like being outdoors. But when it comes to crafting I love to add a lot of frost to my creations. And so I also added some to the card I am sharing with you today.

For the base I used one of the sheets from the Winter Feelings #59 paper pad by Studio Light. It's full of fun and frosty designs. To add even more frost I used Frantage Chunky White on the edges to add a frost pattern.

Across this paper I've put a piece of the Rebecca lace.

As the main element of my card I didn't go with an image this time but this snowglobe. It's made using the snowglobe die by Joycrafts. I've die cut the houses from light and dark grey cardstock and added another layer of white for some snow. The paper with the falling snow is another sheet from the Winter Feelings paper pad. I also added a few of the stars confetti here.

The frame and the bottom of the snowglobe were cut from silver glitter cardstock. It goes so great with an icy color scheme. To make the delicate pattern of the bottom pop out a bit more I used white cardstock behind the bottom.

On the left side I've put some trees behind the snowglobe. I used the birch trees die by Joycrafts to cut them and a white gelly marker to paint in the details through the holes in the die.

This cute Tilda with Snowheart by Magnolia is an older image but I thought it goes so perfectly with my card, I just had to use her.

On the bottom right of my card I've used some turquoise wax cord, white pixie blossoms and some of the white 5mm glass stamen. I only used the ends here, glueing the directly onto my card. They remind of me of ice covered berries. 

On the top right I've put one of the Paper Art Labels by Dutch Doobadoo behind the snowglobe. It looks like  a moon to me and just fits into the scene. I've tied some turquoise ribbon to it and added more berries and a die cut star to it.

 Wishing all of you a happy sunday!

  1. Beautiful Christmas card. Love the colours. Great idea to have a moon shaped tag and I love the loop of twine. Goes without saying the coloured image is 😍.
