I’m so blessed today to be participating in a Spellbinders New Inspiration Blog Hop featuring my newest Christmas Collections 3D Holiday Vignettes and Glimmering Glimmer Designs. Not only that, but a host of expert bloggers and crafters have joined in for the occasion. I’m always bowled over when I see the creativity someone has lavished on a new design and I know this hop won’t disappoint. Plus, there are prizes!! I have the entire list of hops at the bottom of my post.
Today, I decided to make a Shaker Card and Matching Ornament. Because it has a lot of area, I chose the Grand Snow Globe 3D Holiday Vignette and decked it out in cream and gold. I simply added a layer of gold behind my cream layer for the extra sparkle to peek out. I pulled out a piece of music patterned paper to give the back of the globe a little bit of contrast.
I don’t often make shaker cards but when I do, I love the experience. The Snow Globe is begging to be made into a shaker card and the ornament is even simpler. I filled mine with glitter glass and gold beads that are sandwiched in between two pieces of acetate and glued to open aperture pieces of the Snow Globe Die. I cut an extra gold rim just for embellishment and then trimmed off the bottom of a gold die cut to pick up that lovely gold detail.
The card is made the same as the ornament except that I mounted it on cardbase and used popdots to give it some lovely dimension. And then, I added a pretty bow.
