We were challenged to use a color palette posted on Nichole's blog and create a Christmas card using those colors. This is the color theme I chose:
I started with the Shaker Shapes: Snow Globe Die and I cut the card base. By folding the cardstock in half and offsetting the die just a little, I was able to create a top fold card that I built my snow globe on.
I then cut the rim/base of the snow globe itself from Soft Stone cardstock. Actually, I cut it 4 times. This way I was able to layer each piece on top on the next and build some dimension - and some space for the items in my snow globe to move.
A piece of transparency plastic was cut with a circle die and added to the stack right under the first of those 4 layers. The base of the globe was cut from Smokey Shadow.
Inside my snow globe I added two die cut trees (also from PTI but I can't find the name of it in the products right now). These were cut from New Leaf cardstock and inked with Fresh Snow ink along the edges.
The little Winter Penguin was die cut and stamped in black and his hat was inked up in Blueberry Sky. The sentiment (also from a set I don't know the name of at present - sorry!) was stamped on a die from the Bubble Talk set.
Finally, my sprinkles are snowflakes and dots (this die is included in the Snow Globe die set) in Blueberry Sky and something close to Hawaiian Shores, and a little iridescent glitter was added to enhance the wintery look and feel.
You can find all these products at Papertrey Ink and be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created! Have a great weekend - and I promise, I'll be back soon!!
