Snow Globe No 4 - Clear Embossed.

Hello Crafters.

When I started working on yesterday's card I was planning to use acetate but I couldn't get it to do what I wanted it to!

As an alternative, I decided to see how much of a shine I could achieve by heat embossing with clear Embossing Powder.

I like the result, although I don't think you can see the shine in the photographs.

Like my Wednesday project, yesterday's project colour was dictated by a Basic Black Card Stock card base with a Whisper White layer that I found in my to do box on Wednesday when I had my clear out!

When it comes to adding ribbons to cards, it isn't often that I tie it around the actual card but I just felt this layout lent itself to this idea.

To create my card I added a layer of the snowflake design from the Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink,  I stamped the house and trees image from the Cosy Christmas Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. 

Then I stamped the globe outline from the Sparkly Seasons Stamp Set around it.

I used the circle die from the Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies to cut it out.

I used the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the globe base onto a piece of Whisper White and cut it out by hand.

For the Noel, I used the die from the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies and I used Thick Whisper White Card Stock.

I stamped all three cut-outs with Versamark, covered them with Clear Embossing Powder and then heat set them.

With the globe and the base I stamped them a second time with Versamark, covered with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.

Then I repeated it a third time.

I adhered all three images to the card base using Tombow. Finally I tied the 5/8" Organza Ribbon around the card base and tied a bow.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

I will be making some of these for my " send a card to someone on their own this Christmas" I heard about it last yr and will be doing it again this yr, so thanks for your inspiration. X

  2. Hi, Ros. Many thanks for your kind words. Still one more to come tomorrow!! I've not heard about "send a card to someone on their own this Christmas". Do the organisers have a web site? Have a great weekend and happy crafting. JanB.
