Hi everyone! I’m back with another birthday card…this snowglobe card is for one of our granddaughters that just turned 12! Lilli loves to stamp and die cut. She will sit and do tedious die creating even! A gal after her Grandma’s heart for sure! lol
When I saw this Fox die I just had to have it. I don’t know why, if you know me, you know I’m not an animal lover! A lot of my friends are, so I keep good company! lol I love cute stamp and die critters though!
To come up with this snow-globe shape, I used the Memory Box Circle Basics die and the Memory Box Snow-globe Open Studio Bases die set. It was easy to make the front but I took the challenge and did partial die cutting to make the card base because I wanted it to be the snow-globe shape too. It worked great!
With a pencil I outlined the card front onto the card base. I cut the circle part of the base by keeping the fold below the cutting line on the circle so it wouldn’t be cut when I ran it through the machine. I stopped cutting the circle when it got to where the base started by lining the cutting plate up at the stopping point before I ran it through the machine.
Then I lined up the base to the pencil line and used a little piece of broken cutting plate at an angle on both sides (one side at a time) so the top of the base wouldn’t cut when I ran it through the machine! I was tickled with how it came out and even more tickled that it worked the first time! hehe
So don’t throw broken cutting plates away…that’s my tip for the day!
You’ll find the Circle basics die set HERE, the Parker Alphabet dies HERE, the Snow-globe Base HERE (wouldn’t you know, the snow-globe bases are discontinued, I found them at this site though when I googled), the Pattern Paper I used HERE, the flower sticker HERE and the Fox HERE.
Linking to some challenges…
