Let It Snowglobe
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  I have a fun non-traditional color winter card to share today.  I really wanted to use the Snowglobe Bases die set again.  There are four snowglobe base sizes and initially I had planned on making a tag with this size, but ended up turning it into a card instead.  The largest die actually makes a great shaped card.

So I started by die cutting a circle from Bristol paper using Circle Basics.  Took the next smaller size die and die cut a circle frame.  Oops, I think I used a circle die that is one (or two) size too big. 😆  Next, masked off the snowy ground on the circle and ink blended Wilted Violet and Spun Sugar distress inks (DIs) for the fun sky.  Flicked on some water, then blot with a paper towel to give it texture.  


The snowglobe base and snowmen with their accessories were die cut from alcohol marker friendly paper and colored in with Copic Sketch markers.  The background is also Bristol paper die cut with the Pinpoint Burst Plate.  Blended on Spun Sugar DI, then black heat embossed the sentiment from Spirit of Christmas with clear glitter embossing powder.  Assembled the card on a white card base to finish.  


And that’s it from me today.  I want to thank everyone for joining me and leaving such kind comments throughout this crazy year.  2021 can only get better.  Whatever occasion you celebrate, have a happy holiday!  Stay healthy and keep safe.





So creative and such a fun and happy card. Great colour combination too x.

Fabulous! Love the snowglobe with the two little snowmen. Great colour scheme!

Love these non-traditional colors and the sweet snow people with their bright hats and scarves! I especially love that wood looking base! Fantastic and fun card!

love the colours Trina and that pin point burst background adds so much texture to your adorable snow globe. Awesome card :)

So adorable! I LOVE the non-tradtional purple and pink for your snowglobe, Trina! The burst background is just perfect!

Oooohhhh.... Amazing!! LOVE so much the design with the pinpoint radiant and the cute snow-globe in the centre! Love so much the colour choice, too!!
Thanks for sharing!

This is absolutely lovely, Trina! Love the non-traditional color Christmas card. The snowy sky is amazing, and the pinpoint bust is so effective!
