Couture Creations Snow Globe

Christmas Snow Globe 
By Sue Smyth 

Its that time of year again when we like to make small gifts and special cards for those friends and family who have everything. This is a project that I have done many times before and it always 
looks stunning. Using an Acetate sheet, blue cardstock 
and Couture Creations Embossing folders, you can create your 
very own magical snow globe.

This time I have used Couture Creations Embossing folders to create a snowy scence suitable for
any snow globe.

I have used loads of glitter and white cardstock along with a reindeer punch.

Use the template below, print out on an A4 sheet. Cut out the semi circle
from bluish cardstock and emboss w

Brush over with gesso and spray with Dragonfly and Mallard Glimmer mists.

Cut out base from blue cardstock and emboss as well, rub over white gesso and spray with 
glimmer mists. Allow to dry 

Attach both ends, spray with spray adhesive and sprinkle with lots of 
white glitter.

Attach base 1 to base 2 with masking tape.

Use template for globe, and cut on the fold to form the folded globe top. 
Swipe with white
gesso and allow to dry 

Emboss a small circle with Reindeer wipe with gesso and spritz
with glimmer mists.
Highlight the image with Glitzin Glamour, allow to dry.

Hand cut trees and punch out a reindeer to create a
snowy scene. Cut a rough circle of white cardstock, scrunch up, spray with Adhesive and 
sprinkle with glitter. Allow to dry.
Glue the trees and deer onto this circle and attach to 
snow globe base. 
Decorate the front with paper snowflakes and Couture Creations rhinestones.
Cut out the embossed message of your choice and ink with blue ink.
Scrunch a bit and glue to front.
Use a white paint pen to apply small flakes around the edge of globe

Add pearlized sequin stars around the edge of globe and white fibres 
around the base.
