Winter Wonderland Snowglobe

Hello, my friends!  Okay,I said that I might try coming up with my own design for the "shaker" cards.  Well this is what I came up with.   I had fun making this one! It turned out way better than I thought it would! A little bit of trial and error but I figured it out and am now pleased with it enough to show it to you all.  I may make more of these...or not, but not with the same picture inside.

I used:
Christmas Cartridge for the trees and snowflake and the church
Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge for the circles
Winter Woodland Cartridge for the words on the base
My Minds Eye O Christmas Tree Cardstock
DCWV The Homemade Christmas Stack
DCWV the glitter card stock stack
Ribbon from Michael's
Pop Dots cut to fit around the circle
Bottle of glitter (was given to me)

This is a side view, to show you the depth of it! 

 Well, I hope you are having a great day!

Christmas Shaker Cards

Okay, I have always wanted to try to make some of these "Shaker box" cards and have looked at magazines, and pictures and directions and...so finally I did it! In the wee hours of the morning, I sat down and looked at the magazine and "ding" the snowglobe stamp I had would be a perfect thing to do it with.  So,  I tried it and this is the result! Not to shabby for the first time trying it! I may now get more elaborate with these. Maybe?! The glitter is a large bottle, given to me last year at Thanksgiving, because someone thought that I could use it, I don't know why??? LOL  It has been sitting on my "craft table" since then looking at me and saying, "Use me!". So now I have a use for it! Yippee!  I am thinking of getting more fancy with it and maybe design my own snowglobe with my wonderful, Gypsy!  Some of the snowglobes look like they are snowbound and others look like they got just a dusting of snow.  Opps, I need to find the "happy medium" of the amount of glitter to put in them.  Oh well!

I used:
Christmas Cartridge for the flowers and the snowflakes
My Mind's Eye O Christmas Tree
DCWV The Homemade Christmas Stack
Acetate Sheets
Ribbon from Michael's
StazOn ink
Stampin Up! Sweet Snowglobe
Stampin Up! Bells & Boughs (for the Merry Christmas sentiment on the second card)
Glitter given to me from family
Recollections rhinestones from Michael's

I hope you are having a great day!
