What a busy release day! Make sure you check both this post and the next for exciting new products, blog hops, and blog candy!!!
How would you like to create your own personal snow globe? Well, now you can! Flower Soft is releasing fabulous new products to help you do just that! You can purchase these new products November 2nd, online, HERE.
I began my snow globe by scoring a card base made from red cardstock. I then covered the front of the card with SEI Peppermint Bark foil decorator paper, found here.
The "globe" part of my snow globe is a dome shaped oval, which comes with a template to create the opening. You can also purchase teamplates (Aperature cards) pre cut. I used a Spellbinder Oval die to cut my opening to fit the globe (on the front of the card).
After preparing the front, I used my new Spellbinder Poinsettia dies to become the focal point of the snowglobe. I cut layers from the Peppermint Bark dp, as well as layers from SEI Christmas Mint marzipan paper. Some brilliant red Kaiser rhinestones make the perfect poinsettia center.
I then attached the poinsettia to the inside of the card, so it would fit into the globe opening. After attaching the flower to the back layer of the card, I added Flower Soft Polar White for the "snow" in the snowglobe. I used double sided carpet tape, as well as Flower Soft glue to adhere the "card" so that it was totally sealed. My card no longer opens as a card, but becomes a card topper.
A bright red ribbon tab and knot finish this design. Plan on trying a snow globe for yourself! It was great fun to create, and makes a fantastic presentation!
