Create the feeling of a snow globe on a Christmas greeting card with a shaker bubble front and a lot of snow. This Christmas card has less color in the background in order to enhance the centerpiece. The snow both in the bubble front and on the top of the card is created with the Amplify White, a must have craft supply for Christmas and winter!
Time: 1 hour
Blend the Brilliance and VersaColor blues on the watercolor paper and cut a circle in diameter slightly larger than then bubble front.
Die cut the village shape from the watercolor paper and make light shades using the VersaColor Pinecone and a Brushstix.
Die cut 3 more village shapes and glue on top of each other to make a thick one. This will add dimension (depth) on the design and act as an obstacle to the beads inside the bubble.
Glue the village die cutting on the watercolor paper and cover the bottom of it with Amplify White and heat to activate it and make it fluffy.
Make tiny dots of snow above the village using the irRESISTible Pico Embellisher Wedding Dress color.
Add rhinestones with the help of On Point Glue.
Cut from a 4 x 6 piece of the corrugated paper, a round center, large enough to for the bubble front. Distress with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue, VersaColor Pinecone and spray with Sheer Shimmer Sparkle and Silver.
Remove the excess of the shaker bubble front and add Tear It Tape, all around it.
Glue the watercolor paper circle on the card, add beads in the center before covering with the bubble front. Continue by placing the corrugated paper and the twine.
Use Amplify! White on top of the corrugated paper piece to make snow effect.
Add the rest of the embellishments using On Point Glue and your hot glue gun (for ribbon elements).
