Snow globe Snowman

It's time for CAS Christmas Mid Month Reminder. This month if you haven't been over to check it out the challenge is Snowmen.

Our Guest Designer for this month is Barb of Barbs Studio Creations. Along with Susan our host, Barb and the rest of the Design Team we have some great inspiration for you.

For my card I used a snow globe die which I've had in my stash for eons and this is the first time it's touched paper. 
I die cut the snow globe in white and lined the back of the holly leaf base with some silver foil paper. I die cut a window and a foam frame for the shaker. The background is out of my UFO stash, it was a piece of card with a nail polish marbling on it. The colours were so soft I thought it was perfect for the wintry background.
I die cut a hill and stamped the snowman along the edge, I re-stamped the snowman and die cut it.  I coloured him using touch alcohol pens and then used Nuvo clear glitter to make him sparkle. I added black pearl pen to pop up his buttons.
I hope you like him­čśĆ

  1. Beautiful marbling in your background and I love your Snow Globe, Christine! Your snowman is so unique and I love how he fits perfectly inside your shaker!
    Thank you so much for having me along as GD for May ♥

  2. Oh that background is gorgeous and that is a technique unfamiliar to me. It looks shiny from the photo. That is one, dynamite snow globe die and love the detail in it. The snowman is just so cute too. Fabulous card.

  3. What a beautiful snow globe, Christine! Love this sweet snowman with his soft winter background and sequins to shake!

  4. I was wondering how you got such an interesting and cool effect for the wintry background, Christine. Nail polish marbling - I've never tried the technique. Thanks for sharing the YouTube link. I'd like to try it sometime soon.
    The snow globe base backed with silver foil paper is so pretty and the snowman's facial expression makes me smile!

  5. LOVE your snowman in the snow globe Christine! Such a fun image ... love the expression on his face. The nail polish background is just perfect. xx

  6. Wow..awesome and very creative snowman snow globe design, Christine. Your nail polish background is so cool. TFS my friend. See you tomorrow:-) Hugs

  7. A great background technique - it suits the card perfectly

  8. Fantastic use of the nail polish marble background, Christine!... gives the impression of movement which is perfect for a snow globe. Cute snowman and beautiful snow globe die too. xx

  9. Fun idea to create the snow globe. The nail polish technique looks fabulous on the background and what a wonderful card x

  10. Adorable card! I collect snowmen, so this is right up my alley!

  11. :-)) such a funny card :-) Loll is right, I love the expression of the snowman's face :-) I love the background, it's hard to believe that it was made of nail varnishes. It looks spectacular!
