Snow Globe Shaker

I used both old and new things.  I have had the snow globe from IO for a year now but I have only used it once.  IO also sells the plastic globes that fit in the circle so it is easy to make a shaker card.The dp is from a stack that I bought three years ago.  The new things are the pine trees in the snow globe that I cut from white glitter paper and the wood grained background stamp.  It does not show up very well in the picture.  The snow flakes were new before Christmas but I used them several times on Christmas cards.
I used the following IO products

Snow Globe - DIE122-R  Deer Trio - DIE080-N  Fir tree DIE217-E  small snow flake DIE100-F
Leafy branches DIE055-N

This card will be entered in a few challenges.  The Winter Chill Challenge at IO Anything Goes With a Twist at Use something new.

  1. OMgoodness! This is fantastic Kathy! Love all of the texture and the whole card is beautiful. Those die cuts from IO are amazing and I love what you do with them.
    You guys are all killing me with your card creations. We just got to Florida and I connected my computer last night. The big game is today(Packers and Cowboys), so I doubt that I will get any crafting done, but watch out for next week. I am cheering for the Packers, no surprise!

  2. Oh, my goodness, Kathy. This is absolutely STUNNING!!! Just STUNNING! I love the neutral colors you have used, so different for a winter card. And interesting that you used that check paper for a background strip and the plaque on the snow globe. Really great touch. Incredibly GORGEOUS~!!!!!!

  3. Awesome design Kathy! Love the globe idea and perfect for a guy too! Well done! Thanks so much for playing in our ‘ANYTHING GOES with a *NEW* TWIST’ challenge at Dies R Us! Please come back again soon!
