Imaginisce January Challenge: Snowman Snowglobe Card

The Reveal:
I've always loved snow globe cards, with that interactive component and movement of the falling snow.  I was very happy that I found the perfect opportunity to make a literal snow globe card. 

Snowman Snow Globe Card

The Challenge:
I saw that the January challenge at Imaginisce was to make a winter themed project as inspired by this photo. 

Inspiration Photo
I really wanted to stick with the blue and white colors, but my Imaginisce winter collection was the Christmas themed Santa's Little Helper, which is primarily red and green. I chose a chipboard sticker that had a blue background, and placed that on a blue background paper from the princess themed Enchanted collection

3D Snow Globe
The Details:
The snow globe itself is packaging from some Bo Bunny buttons. I placed some white glitter, silver star confetti and blue micro beads inside the packaging for the snow. 

I wanted to try a technique I saw online where you stamp and emboss in white onto white cardstock and then mist the paper with the color you want. You then dab off the mist from the embossed areas and the white stamped images remain. That is how I achieved the white snowflakes even after misting over them. 
Santa and His Sleigh
To play on the winter theme, I decided to add Santa in his sleigh flying over the snowman scene. They are cut from the a piece of patterned paper also from the Santa's Little Helper collection.

The Inside:
Even though this is a winter themed card, the next major card giving holiday is Valentine's Day, so I really wanted to find a way to turn this into a Valentine's Day card. The chipboard sticker said, "Cold Nose" next to the snowman on the front of the card. On the inside, I cut the same snowman from the patterned paper and popped him up inside the card. I used the heart shaped Glam Rock and adhered it to the snowman. I hand wrote, "Warm Heart" to play on the idiom, "Cold hands, warm heart."

So the sentiment reads, "Cold nose, warm heart."

Exterior and Interior of Card
Hope you enjoyed my little card. Thanks for stoppin' by. 

Happy scrappin',
