Snow Globe Fun ! ~ December Stamp of the Month

It's our last Stamp of the Month for 2023! Is it just me or did it seem like this year went by fast!  If you're new to our Stamp of the Month program here's how it works. Each month we feature an exclusive stamp set for that month only. When the month ends the stamp set goes away. You can get the Stamp of the month at full price OR at a discount with a qualifying order of $50 US. It gets even better! If you're a VIP Customer with a qualifying order you get the Stamp of the Month FREE! Scroll down to see info about the VIP Customer program. By the way, there is a sign-up or renewal bonus for November 1st -January 31st!

First, I love snow globes so I was excited with this stamp set. Each snow globe is unique and very cute. I decided to create the image as a shaker card to simulate a snow globe. The image with the Christmas tree was perfect for what I had in mind. 

I stamped the image and then chose a Circle Thin Cut die to fit the size of the globe. Here's where things went a bit wonky. The larger circle Acetate + Foam Shaker kit was too big and the smaller size was too small. So I reverted back to the days when we didn't have these kits and had to do it on our own. 

I used the larger sized acetate and taped it to the back of the cut out. I trimmed off the excess with scissors. Next the foam circle was too big so I started snipping it into sections I placed around the opening of the circle. In effect this created the custom sized circle I needed. I used the other foam pieces around the back of the white cardstock for support. 

The circle with the tree was glued to the green layer. Then I carefully put some sprinkles on top of the tree. Next came the white cardstock placed over the tree circle. At this point I had my shaker element!

The design of the card came from our newest How-to Book called Make It from Your Heart  Volume 6. This is a great way to get started on a layout of card. All the measurements are right there for you! Plus there are examples to show what the pattern can look like. I love our How-to Books!
