Reindeer Snow Globe Shaker

Hi there, 

Well, here we are again - December! That was the quickest year ever, wasn't it? My December header is a little herd of deer in our front yard, enjoying all those extra acorns that Mother Nature provided for them this year! My first card for December is for the Dies R Us Design Team and also includes a deer - a snow globe shaker card, using the Memory Box Evergreen Reindeer and the Tutti Cross Stitched Nesting Circles.

Here are the dies I used:

Tutti Designs - Cross Stitch Nesting Circles

I ran both dies through the big shot at the same time. 

In an effort to make it look like a snow globe, I used the Spellbinders Mega Ovals Large to cut a base - cutting it out first and then die cutting another piece out of the "top" - from a piece of wood-grained self-adhesive cardstock.

I then stuck acetate to the back of the "globe" with double stick tape.

A piece of digi paper was attached to the front of a white card base for the background. Happy Holidays from an old Sparkle N' Sprinkle Set was stamped in Versafine Clair Monarch under the globe and heat set with Clear embossing powder.

Mounting tape was then attached to the back of the globe panel.

A few spoons of Stampendous Shaved Ice was then added on top of the background paper.

The top panel was then placed on to the card base to finish off my card.

Below you will find the products that I have used in my project today:
