Deck the Halls...


A few more cards for you...



As this day has progressed, I didn't factor in the sun going down and me losing all my beautiful light for photography, so please excuse the glare from the flash.




I purposely kept this card very simple, letting the snow globe be the focal point. Shake it up!



Using the foil stickers was a little more challenging and again, the flash took away some of the beautiful detail. I needed a good contrast, so used a cream colored cardstock, lightly inked to background the stickers.



I also lightly sanded then to create a little more contrast...and what we do without stickles. I mean, really? Love them! Want to share them!

2 lucky followers who comment will get one of the cards and a new bottle of stickles!

I love the snowglobe card but how did you make it concave?

Hi Shasta...IT's great isn't it. I wish I could tell you it's some clever technique, but I purchased that embellishment from K & Company already made. It's kind of old now, I wonder if they still sell it? I'll check

I found them. They are called Evergreen Christmas Stickers, snowglobe by K & Company. The best price was on Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/listing/84890738/evergreen-christmas-stickers-vintage?ref=sr_gallery_4&ga_includes%5B0%5D=materials&ga_search_query=snow+globe&ga_page=6&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet=

Good luck!
