Snowglobe shaker

I wanted to make Christmas cards for Dave’s family this year, and I knew his mom loves snowglobes.

I didn’t have any snowglobe dies or circle dies, but Cricut Access ended up having everything I needed.

I used two circles (one larger than the other) to get the green glitter frame. Then I took a snowglobe image and used hide contour to get just the bottom stand/piece. I also cut the words “merry christmas” out of gold glitter.

For the globe filler, I used print then cut for the snowman with his cute little broom, and cut the dachshund and trees out of pattern paper. I also inked around the edges of the dachshund for shading – something I shamelessly copied from Youtube cardmakers. :p Turned out pretty cute, if I may say so myself.

Tragically, the card never made it to Dave’s mom. It got returned to me in the mail as undeliverable. 😦 I’ve been having trouble with sending mail to the US and only one of my Christmas cards made it last year. I’m keeping the card, and may hand it to her in person on my next trip…
