Today I am featuring the Enchanting Snowglobe Deep Edge Die from the new Winter 2017 Collection from Memory Box.
If you have been following the blog posts this week, you have seen so many creative projects using the new Deep Edge dies. These dies are designed to cut through many layers of material. Felt, fabric and acetate are just some of many examples!
For my project I used a combination of felt, thin cork board and heavy weigh watercolor paper. I was able to cut through three layers of each material using the new metal shim that was designed to use with the deep edge dies. That way you can prep several projects at once.
I die cut the trees, house and "Let it Snow" from heavy weight watercolor paper and inked them with distress inks. To incorporate different textures I die cut the snow hill and globe from felt and the base of the snow globe from metallic cork paper. I glued them together and moved onto the snow! I dotted on white acrylic paint to create a snowing effect, as well as adding some to the house and trees. While the paint was wet I added my favorite part, glitter! I felt like the ornament was missing something but was not sure what. I was looking around my craft room and came across some batting and thought "this could work as smoke!". I torn a small piece off and glued it beneath the chimney to add some more dimension to the house. Lastly, to give the ornament a finished look and add stability I cut an addition snow globe from felt and placed my string in between the two layers.
