Haunted House "Snowglobe"
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  In the Christmas 2020 release, there was a series of dies that could be used individually to make a 2-D card or combined to make a 3-D ornament/home decor snowglobe.  In the latest release, there are new dies that make spooky Halloween scenes.

To make my spooky 3-D scene, I started by sponging Distress Inks onto white cardstock.  I always make at least two backgrounds when I get out my inks.  I love having a spare.  Once I sponged the ink, I then spritzed it with water to give it a mottled look:


Here are the colors I used:


I cut out the various layers for my scene using black cardstock:


Some of the things I would like to point out about the pieces:

On the wrought iron fence die, I cut it out a second time with grey paper and then glued the grey on top of the black.

I glued the Distress Ink background behind the last piece of the scene.

For the haunted house, I cut it out in grey paper then glued yellow cardstock behind the windows and glued brown cardstock behind the door.  I then attached the grey house onto the black die cut piece.

The final piece is the Snowglobe backer that serves as a base for all the pieces.

Here is a closeup of the scene:


Last time I used the Snowglobe Backer to make a holiday card, I placed the big flap of the die on the front of the ornament.  I thought it looked like a snowbank for my scene.  For the Halloween project, I had the flap in the back because I didn't want it to obstruct the fencing.  You can use the backing die either way and it will work out just fine.

Have a great weekend!







Love it!
