Hello and welcome,
Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative Christmas projects, many featuring products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue which starts on the 4th of September.
If you would like a copy of the 2019 - 2020 Annual catalogue or the new Holiday catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.
When I first had a flick through the Holiday Catalogue the first set that I couldn’t wait to purchase was the beautiful Still Scenes bundle. The bundle includes the Still Scenes Stamp Set and the coordinating Snow Globe Scenes Dies when purchased in a bundle you save 10% off. The thought of creating a Snow Globe Christmas Card was really exciting too!
I wanted to create my card by making a snow scene and shaker card using soft colours with silver, white and lots of twinkles. The Snowflake Sequins are just gorgeous they come in stars, snowflakes and round sequins in clear, iridescent, silver and white.
Before I even started to create the card, I wanted to know a way on how to put the globe part together and I found a YouTube video tutorial by Suzanne Burnett. Click on the video below to see how Suzanne created her gorgeous card.
Once I had die cut the snow globe insert (Whisper White Cardstock), trees (Silver Foil) and church pieces (Whisper White Cardstock & scrap piece of Gold Foil). To create the snow on the trees, I covered the Silver Foil in Versamark Ink, covered in White Emboss Powder, brushed some of the powder off with a brush and then heat set. I love this look and here is a close up of the trees.
The background for the snow scene is sponged in Seaside Spray, White Emboss Powder in stars and snowflakes. For the layers I’ve used Stampin’ Dimensionals for each layer. Tip (from Suzanne Burnett) with the Snow Globe Shaker Dome is to use the Stampin’ Emboss Buddy and lightly dust the globe. This helps with glitter and sequins not sticking.
I’ve used a few layers for the card – Thick Whisper White (card base), Silver Foil (2nd layer), Whisper White (3rd layer) once they all together with the Snow Globe I then finished off my card.
I’ve used Silver Foil for the Snow Globe stand, layered it with Dimensionals, the sentiment is Silver Embossed on a strip of Whisper White Cardstock, layered with a strip of Silver Foil and two silver foil snowflakes from the Christmas Layers Dies.
