Snow-Men, Snow-Globe

Welcome to a very special blog

I am the guest designer for Christmas Card Throwdown!!
very exciting as I have never been guest designer before

The challenge this week is

Whatever does that mean? I hear you say (well it's what I said) so I looked it up and it is what it sounds like.  Take some embellishments and cluster them together
Well this is my take

I die cut some small Christmas images out of glitter card and patterned paper scraps and arranged them until I liked what I had done

The snow globe and snowmen were stamped and coloured, the star background is stencilled (I think if I did it again I would emboss instead)

The snow in the snowglobe is from white/clear glitter glue that I dabbed around randomly.  It doesn't show too well in the photo but it looks really sparkely in person

I didn't start the card with a red and gold colour theme in mind but the first few things I coloured were red and gold and I liked it so I carried on

Have a look at

make your own card and enter it.  It's great fun

  4. Congrats for receiving the honor to be our Guest Designer at 52 CCT blog! I love your card! Thanks for including a closeup photo in order to see some of that glitter snow within the stamped snow globe! The red and gold cluster at the top is a wonderful accent for your snow-globe scene plus it repeats and reinforces those colors elsewhere in the card! Excellent!
