3-D Snowglobes & Glitter Paper
by Angie Cimbalo

Hello and welcome!  I have made a couple of pretty 3-D scenes using the newly released snowglobe dies and some beautiful glitter papers from Memory Box.  These die sets can be used individually or in combination with each other to create lovely 3D snowglobes.  In addition to the main large die piece in each set, they come with other small dies such as a cloud, a cabin, critters, snowmen, and more.

For my projects today, I combined four dies for the first one and three dies for my second snow globe.

To see how these dies work together, check out Laura's post HERE.  She has some great tips and pictures that show just how easy they are to assemble.

For the first snow globe, I applied Distress Oxide and Distress inks direct to white card stock panels, splattered them with white acrylic paint and die cut the following:

1)  "Snowmen Snowglobe":  Iced Spruce Oxide panel

2)  "Cabin Snowglobe":  Speckled Egg Oxide panel

3)  Background opening:  Pastel Glitter Paper (blue) 

4)  The cloud die:  White Pastel Glitter paper

5)  The tiny cabin:  Watercolor paper inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink

6)  "Snowglobe Backer" & snow on cabin:  White card stock (I added a strip of Iced Spruce on the bottom front)

7)  Chimney smoke and back of cabin:  Brown card stock

Once the die cutting was complete, it was very easy to assemble because the backer has score marks to 1) show you where to place the inner snowglobe dies and 2) another one on the edge to actually fold upward to create the bottom snow drift in the front.  I had cut the backer in white and after assembling it, i decided I wanted Iced Spruce on the bottom snowdrift, so I used a scrap of that card stock to die cut just the bottom of the backer die.  I trimmed it with scissors and added it to the front of my snow globe.  Now my bottom snow drift was the color I wanted it to be!

Here's a look at my second one:

Radient 1

This time I used Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink then die cut the "Radiant Snowglobe" background.  I only used the sky background from that piece and combined it with all other white die cuts.  The trees in the front were cut from white using the "Cabin Snowglobe" die set.  After adhering the two snowglobe dies together inside the backer die, and before gluing the bottom snowdrift on the backer die up, I stamped the sentiment from the "Spirit of Christmas" stamp set.  I added a star gem from my stash on the background to draw your eyes to the gorgeous radiant die-cut lines.

On both projects, I added thin gold twine in a loop though the holes at the top.  Now I can either hang them on my tree or use them as home decor items during the holidays!

Here's a few more views of my finished snowglobes:
