' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Around the globe

Around the globe

Today I am showing an inspiration make for Crafts U Love. With the Christmas cards made and sent, for the most part, time to think about the New Year.

My design evolved around the Crealies Snow globe die set and although I hadn't planned to make another shaker card as I did last month, the idea imposed itself!

First I cut the largest die in the set, the globe itself out of silver card, then positioned the smaller die to cut out the center of the globe.
I cut another globe with acetate to layer over the image and create the shaker element of the card.

I stamped the deer in the set on a piece of Studio Light paper, coloured it with pencils and gel pen.

To create my confettis I used the die in the set, just because I could, but to save time I would advise to use paper rather than card and fold them in 2 or 4, or use one of the Tonic Studio glitters assortments.

I stamped the sentiment from the John Next Door Clear Stamp Set - Poinsettia and embossed it with WOW! Embossing Glitter - White Twinkle.

To put the card together I placed a piece of the Studio Light paper on a card blank, then a piece of Chiffon cardstock, the stamped panel and placed the confettis in the middle.
I backed the acetate globe with foam pads all around and glued it to the back of the globe, then positioned it over the image.
