Creative Cafe' KOTM Snow Globe Shaker Card

It's HO HO HO-liday card making time!  Laura here today
at The Rubber Cafe' with a slight twist on the everyday
shaker card.  This one is a "stand-up" snow globe card made
with our fantastic Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month:


Card Base:
  Standard easel card which is 4" x 8"; scored at 4" and 2" on one side.
  1&3/4" by 3&3/4" silver snowflake paper on the 2" folded piece
  (under the snow globe base) and a 1" by 3&3/4" piece along the
  bottom of the card under the sentiment.  The sentiment strip is finished
  using a small scrap of peppermint stripe (about 1" by 3&1/4") and a
  thin strip of red cardstock.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and embossed in black on the
gray snowflake paper, punched it out with a 1&1/4" punch, and layered
onto a 1&1/2" circle of red cardstock, then foam taped to the center.
Red Queen & Co rhinestones, clear bling and a snowflake finish the base.

Snow Globe:
  Use Spellbinders Classic Scallop Circle die (largest size) to cut shiny
  red cardstock.  Cut a white cardstock circle, a shiny red cardstock
  circle and also a piece of acetate using the Spellbinders Classic Circle
  die (largest size).  When cutting the acetate, run it thru machine a few
  times to make sure you've got a good cut.

  Take red cardstock circle, and use next size smaller Classic Circle die
  to cut out the center and leave just a rim.  Set aside to complete later.

Snow Globe Base:
  Lay white circle on the scallop, and line up your snow globe
  base piece (a 1&1/4" by 4&1/4" piece of red cardstock), and
  make a small mark where it lines up with the edges:


Trim the slanted edges on both sides of this base piece by lining
up on your paper trimmer using these marks like so:
 

Use a 1" by 4&1/4" piece of silver snowflake, use red cardstock
snow globe base to trim at an angle, then wrap this piece with
organza ribbon (I used a small piece of One and Only tape to
keep it in place:


This is glued with The Rubber Cafe' Scrap Happy Glue, to the red
base, and then another piece of ribbon is slipped under and used to
tie on a bow:


A couple of snowflakes are added to finish the base:


Assembly of the Globe:

  Stamp Santa in Versamark, and emboss in black on right side of circle:
 

To finish Santa, emboss on another small piece of white cardstock
in red, fussy cut out hat and sleeve.  Glue red hat and sleeve to image
above using Scrap Happy Glue, and add a very thin amount of Scrap
Happy Glue to the fur on Santa's sleeve and hat.  Sprinkle with some
Cool Highlight You're So Fine glitter.  You could also color Santa in
with markers....I liked him in black and white.  Adhere this circle to
the red scallop piece, and glue on a few of the snowflakes next to Santa.

Next up, glue the red ring to the acetate circle, then add foam tape to
the back (acetate side) of this piece (sorry in advance, but acetate doesn't
show up in pictures well....lol....it IS in the middle of this circle!):


Sprinkle red sequins onto the Santa piece, and stick down the
acetate circle piece on top.

Glue the base piece to the bottom edge of your circle, and you
have your completed globe:


Line the base of the globe up with the base of the 2" flap on the
easel card and glue in place....lay flat to completely dry.  Add any
additional embellishment (I added a snowflake to the top of the
globe next to Santa).

Your card is ready to send for some holiday cheer!

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend, and thanks
so much for stoppin' by the Cafe' today!
