Today’s card is a Christmas snow globe. I used my Stamparatus for this card because perfect alignment is key. You will also need a Cut & Emboss Machine to cut the hole of the snow globe dome. Having the right tools such as an embossing and cutting machine makes a difference when making cards en masse.
Let’s begin with some important tips before we get to the video tutorial.
First, mark on your Stamparatus foam mat of where you want your card stock to be because this serves as your guide for the next card. For example, you will notice in the video that I marked mine with washi tape.
Secondly, mark your snow globe dome so that it’s perfectly positioned when it’s time to stick it down. The video will show you how I traced it with a pencil.
Lastly, when filling the snow globe dome be careful not to get sequins stuck because the edges are sticky. It’s also important that you cover the dome with a window sheet otherwise the sequins will fall out. Trim The window sheet to a 3-1/2 inch square.
- Whisper White (3-1/2 x 5-1/4 inches)
- Trimming The Town DSP (3 x 5-7/8 inches)
- Window Sheet (3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches)
