New Snowglobe Dies
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  Today I want to share a dimensional vignette using some of the new snowglobe dies.  You can use the dies individually flat on a card (samples at the end of the post), or you can use them in conjunction with each other to make a dimensional ornament or home decor item for your shelf. I was pleasantly surprised that my scene stood up just fine on its own, so I think I will keep it on my desk instead of hanging it on the tree this Christmas.

To make my snowglobe, I cut out various layers from the new dies.  Notice that the treelines are staggered in what I think of as "stadium seating." The back trees and snowbanks are higher so that you can see them.


Originally, I was going to use a light blue cardstock for the back, but I later switched to grey to make a night scene.

If you are building a snowglobe scene, there is a backer die that forms the back of the scene as well as the base and front snowbank.  Everything is scored and when you fold it, it looks like this:


The base has three scored lines.  I did not fold at these lines because they are meant to be guidelines of where to add your various snowglobe layers. 

When I added all of my layers to the base, I was left with a 3-D scene.  Here is a view from the side:


The dies cut a hole at the top so that you can add a string to turn your scene into an ornament.  I used the backer and all 3 snowglobe scenes to build a very detailed vignette.  However, you could fold the base smaller and only use 1 or 2 of the snowglobe dies for a thinner scene.  I will show you how in an upcoming post.

As I mentioned earlier, if you only have one snowglobe die, you don't have to make it into a home decor item.  You can adhere it flat onto a card, and it still looks just as great.  Here are some samples:

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

These are all just fabulous, love how you can use them to get dimension or on their own for a flat card!
