Snowglobe Cards


Just a quickie post! I'm working on a few small Prim Digitals and hope to get them finished this weekend. I'm really busy...so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Amanda and I have been working on some Snowglobe cards (amongst other things) to sell next week. We used the image of the Prim Snowman I created for inside the globe. The Ginger Prims I made would look cute in these too...many of you missed that post!

 I took these photos at 5 this morning...so they're a bit dark...sorry!
I bought a circle cutter....best investment ever! I got it at Michael's for 50% off, and it'll do any size circle you want, anywhere on the page! 

-First I cut a circle around my image. 
-Then I colored in another copy of the image, and cut out the snowman and sign. These I put over the original image with pop dots. 
- I made up a snowcap (traced around the circle part) and with a glue pen added fine glitter. This I attached to an acetate circle I cut with the circle cutter. (3 3/4") *The snowcap is folded so that it can be attached to the acetate circle, and the image circle. 
-These were taped to the card near the top.
-I made up a base and taped it on top of the bottom of the acetate circle, after embellishing it with a ribbon and little bell, carefully lining it up to the bottom of the card. Then the store bought snowflake was attached underneath the bow with embellishment tape.

I will also be getting a bunch of these prepped for the Ridgeview Card Class at the end of this week.

Have a good weekend everyone!
