A Cozy Christmas & Flurry of Wishes: Another Snow Globe Card!!

Hello..... I am absolutely smitten with creating these adorable snow globes for my card fronts. The best part is they are super easy to do. I made one a while back, this one is very similar - but I changed a few elements. I still kept used the {Cozy Christmas} to fill in the globe.  Check it out...

My colours are Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Soft Sky & Silver Glimmer Paper. I stamped the background just as before with the {Flurry of Wishes} stamp set. One of my favourite sets from the Holiday Catalogue. I just love the double lined images - very designer! 

I used the {2" Circle & 1-3/4" Circle Punches} to create the "snow globe". Then using the {Lots of Labels Collection Framelits Dies} - I believe I used the 3 smallest die for the base using Silver Glimmer Paper. The great thing is you can get two globes from one die cut. 

I added a {Snowflake Element}, which I totally love the wooden element and you can change the colour simply by tapping  your ink colour of choice over the element - it does appear darker when absorbed into the wood. I used Marina Mist for mine and it appears more like Island Indigo. I still like the look. I added some glitz with some {Silver Stampin' Glitter} using watered down Multi Purpose Glue. You can use an Aqua painter or just a plain paint brush works just fine and splatter your glue. Apply your glitter, tap off the excess - takes a few minutes to dry, you can use a Heat Tool to speed up the process.
