Snow Globe

Hello to you! If you've visited by blog before you know that today is Christmas Monday and I'm so excited about sharing my card! I had this idea on what I wanted to do but wasn't sure if I'd get it to look the way I wanted when I actually tried it - but it worked and it's AWESOME!!

The challenge issued this week by Sankari is to create a non A2 Christmas card. That means the card can be anything but the traditional size of 4.25 x 5.50. I decided to try and do a snow globe (since I love them!) and to use a new set of stamps that I received.
I used my large circle Coluzzle for the globe and cut the base to go along with it. I then cut another circle on white cardstock and stamped my image on it. Next I glued diamond dust all over the white cardstock. While that was drying I cut another circle this time using acetate. The acetate goes over the top and back of the card (it's adhered on the back and under the red strip of cardstock). Below is a close up of the globe.

So whatcha think? Is it a thumbs up or thumbs down? I'm thinking it's two thumbs up but I'm the creator so I think I'm a little biased :o)

Stop by the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other design team members have created. While you are there leave a link to your creation - come on it's time to start playing along. Christmas will be here before you know it!!

This weekend I was able to get some projects done so I'm happy to say I have a post for everyday this week ready to go. Now I'm working on finishing up my Scor-Pal Class - if you are near Topeka and want to come it's Thursday night at 6:30 and costs $15. You'll make 4 wonderful projects that are sure to please. Email me for directions and details!!

Thanks so much for stopping by - hope your Monday is a good one!
