Good Tidings Shaker Snowglobe Card

Hello! I was so excited to see my Papertrey box on my doorstep this afternoon! I had ordered a couple of Betsy Veldman's shaker Christmas dies and was anxious to try them out. I knew there would be a lot of images and diecuts that would fit inside this globe. I started with the "In The Meadow" Set of dies.

I cut the snowglobe backing from white cardstock, the front of the globe in Limeade Ice, and the base in Simply Chartreuse. I was looking for a tree image to put behind the ITM deer dies because the tree in that set is really too big for the globe. I looked through my stamp sets and finally found the trees I thought would work in the "Masculine Motifs" set. I stamped them with Limeade ice, and then cut the deer out of dark chocolate cardstock. I also cut one of the ITM snowdrifts to place the second deer on. He is popped up on foam adhesive. Because I had the deer popped up, I had to use two layers of foam adhesive (I know, it just about killed me to use up that much of that precious double sided adhesive!) in order for the shaker contents to have room to move around. I stamped the Good Tidings sentiment (from ITM) with dark chocolate on the globe base. I tied a little silver cord around the base and attached the finished snow globe to a card front covered with paper from the Papertrey Christmas Prints paper pad. I used some Martha Stewart coarse glitter and some of the snow globe confetti inside the shaker. So fun!

I can't wait to start on another one!
