Today I am sharing a card that I have created for a challenge in a Facebook group I belong to and the challenge is to create a card featuring a snow globe from any company’s designs. Of course I had to go to Amazing Paper Grace and the Let It Snowman dies from the Christmas Flourishes Collection by Becca Feeken. The colour combination on this card has been inspired by a card I saw on Instagram. I don’t normally put gold accents with soft blue and white but this combination really does work. This die set is an A2 set by I have made this A5 to really show up the embossed background I have created.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
To make my card I have created a side opening 5″ x 7″ card from white cardstock. I have added a piece of 5″ x 7″ Snowdrift card to the front of the card to coordinate with my die cuts. I then cut a piece of soft blue cardstock 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ and added it to the front. I cut a piece of vellum the same size and embossed it with the Holly Flourish Embossing Folder. Before adding the vellum to the front of the card I die cut three frames from the Amazing Paper Grace Let it Snowman A2 Card Front Dies out of Snowdrift cardstock and some snow flakes from some white glitter paper I had in my stash. I stacked the three frames together and added them to the embossed vellum. I added some snowflakes above the frame. I then added some glue behind the snowflakes and frame and added the vellum to the front of the card.
I die cut the main body of the snowman out of Snowdrift cardstock and then added gold to the back of the body and trimmed it to fit. I hot foiled Opal foil to some blue cardstock and then die cut the hat and some snowflakes out of the lovely shiny blue card. The accents were die cut from gold cardstock and the nose from orange cardstock. I assembled the snowman and added it inside the frame.
I die cut the sentiment from Snowdrift and gold cardstocks, assembled them and added them to the base of the frame.
I added the blue snowflakes to the frame and more white glitter snowflakes to the centre of the frame around the snowman as shown.
To finish I added gold pearls to the frame, snowflakes and the snowman.
