Snow Globe Shaker Card from the North Pole

Because I have bought so many stamp sets during the last weeks, I wanted to make sure that I’m starting to use them. To remember which ones I’ve already stamped with and which ones still have to be used I separated my stamps into two stashes. And today I picked the ‘Cool Day’ Polar Bears from MFT to switch them from the ‘unused’ to the ‘used’ stash.

Snow Globe

The Layout idea is from the current MFT Sketch Challenge #241 and to be honest, I had a hard time with this one.

Snow Globe Process

First of all I stamped and colored the cute little polar bear, the floating ice, and the North Pole sign on white card stock and colored it with Copics (I nearly forgot the cheeks…). Than I die cut the shaker panel, the acetate, and the background (Pink Paislee – Hello Sunshine) with the largest of Lawn Fawn’s small rectangles.

Next I cut a circle out of some light blue card stock using the largest stitched circle from the small circle set. For the frame I used a circle die from Spellbinder, centered it, and ran it through my Big Shot. I used the same die to cut a hole into the front panel. Now I adhered the frame to the front, the acetate to the back, and added two layers of foam tape. To remove the sticky-ness, I ran over the borders with my powder tool.

To imitate the snow in a snow globe, I filled the shaker card with some white Simon Says Stamp beads. The shaker part was now finished and my struggle started. It took me forever to decide which background fits best and what type of snowflakes to put onto the front. At the end I decided to go with the Lawn Fawn paper pad for the back and some foam snowflakes for the front.
