Winter Cottage Snow Globe

 


Over at The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up it is the midway point of our challenge. That means it is the turn of the Merry Maidens to share some more fabulous Christmas cards


This paper pack Snow Globes designed by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles is up for grabs to the lucky winner who follows the optional twist to feature a Snow Globe on your card.





The Sponsor for this challenge is Pattie's Creations who is offering the fabulous prize of 3 images from her store.


For my card I have used Winter Cottage Snow Globe. It is such a lovely scene and I knew it would make the perfect focal point for my card.


I knew the perfect paper to create the background and sized the snow globe image to fit comfortably within the patterned border. I added a typed sentiment into the base of the snow globe and printed a second layer of this so I could decoupage it.

The image has been coloured with Promarkers. I used a pencil for the sky background, and a Sakura clear glitter pen to add sparkle to the stars and snow. I fussy cut the snow globe and then added a layer of acetate on top to create a 'glass' effect. I left a little tab at the top and folded this onto the reverse to secure it so there was no adhesive visible on the front. The 2nd layer of the base was then added on top with some thin foam pads for added dimension.  

The card base is 6" and I added a silver mat around the snowflake paper. This is from the Winter Weather paper pack. I changed the hue of the paper in my digital program to make it a richer blue. That is the beauty of using digital products, you have so many ways you can easily manipulate them to change colours, crop, resize, use only part of an item. They really are so very versatile. The paper has been printed into a glossy photo paper and this makes the colour really vibrant.



I do hope you will take part in our challenge and look forward to seeing your creations.
