Snow Globe

I’m back today with another very fun Sneaky Peek set from The Cat’s Pajamas called Snowman Accessory’s a companion set to yesterday’s very adorable Build Your Own Snowman that celebrates those very fun snow globes you can shake any time of the year, in any climate and see a swirly snow scene.  Who hasn’t had fun with those right?  

My card has a bit of an unusual fold style, I’m not even sure what I’d call it, but the front is cut away so that the snowglobe folds open.  I used the Slhouette cut files Alma will have available for this set to form the snow globe, then I stamped the outline of the snow globe and glued acetate behind the snow globe frame.  I stamped some of the mini snowflakes from the set in white ink onto the acetate. It’s all very swirly feeling!

Next I formed the hill out of the He Said, She Said CutUps die, and the placed the snow man on the hill and the snow globe over top.  

Here you can see that it’s got a cute little inside fold that holds the card front open and also has the sentiment.  From this angle you can see the snowflakes stamped onto the acetate.  There is space to write inside the card behind the snow globe or on the back of the card as well.  

On the patterned paper layer I added a snowflake with the Double Snowflake CutUps die, and some pretty rhinestone accents.  A little strip of glittered ScorTape finishes off the front.  

Here’s how this cute set looks.

Love your card, Christine. So very clever with the multi-panels. Your globe looks 3D, you really captured the look.

That card is so neat. I love the little snowman in the globe, it totally looks brilliant. Well done.

This is an adorable card. The globe coming open w "let it snow" is so imaginative. I also love the igloo in the cat pack. When I grew up in Vancouver Canada, some high school students in the US thought we lved in igloos. Now..northern Alberta!!! Lol.
