Good Morning Honey Bee friends!
I hope that you all had a memorable Christmas and that your week is starting off wonderfully! I have this sweet snow globe card to share with you today that I created using one of the new Flakey Friends stamp sets that’s available for pre-order from Honey Bee Stamps! There are three sweet mix and match sets in this series with adorable characters, fun accessories that will fit all the little animals, and of course more of the build your own sentiments that we love from Honey Bee with coordinating fonts. These are some of my favorite sets yet and will be perfect for all my winter scrapbooking, cardmaking, and crafting!
I was very “primitive” in the way I created this card so anyone can try their hand at it without any special dies, machines, or tools. I literally just traced the cap of a coffee can for my circle and free handed the snow globe base on a piece of scrap paper to make a template. I recycled a piece of heavy weight plastic from packaging for the card front. I cut the backside from patterned paper and left a lip at the top to fold over and connect the two pieces. I cut the base from a wood print paper and glued it to the front, along with a punched paper tree and snowflakes, and a fussy cut snowman from the Flakey Friends set. His scarf and hat were stamped, colored, cut out and layered onto him.
I finished off my card by adding clear glitter glue to the outside edge of my transparency “globe” and on the snow drift I stamped on the inside from the set. I also added some “snow” dots on the front around the snow flakes. The inside little house design of the paper was accented with a clear Star Dust gel pen for a little more glimmer. It’s funny that I live in upstate NY and we haven’t had any measurable snow yet this season! I guess this snow globe is as close as we’ll get to snow for now, but I’m okay with that. haha. I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to try one similar! I almost put the polar bear inside but thought the snow man made more sense….but that cute little polar bear is next to use on my crafting list!
