Hello crafty friends, Today I’m super excited to guest design for Scrappy Tails Crafts! My cards today feature the new Slimline Snow Globe Pop Up Card. Both projects are so fun and easy to create. I hope they inspire and give you some ideas on different ways to decorate and build this incredible snow globe die set!
- Use thick card stock or up to 3 stacked die cuts for the front and back panels of the Slimline Snow Globe Card.
- For the parts that require sharp folds ( accordions) use 240 grams card stock as this is easier to fold plus the paper won’t crack.
- Do not stick embellishments around the frame that could stop the spinner motion.
- It seems that thiner twine might works best for the spinner.
To make this card, I used the Slimline Snow Globe Pop Up Card and the Slimline Snowman Spinner. The pinecones and foliage were made using dies from Assorted Christmas Leaves die set. The bow is a small die included in Basket Pop Up Card die set.
For the little banner on the front of the card, I used a pre-printed sentiment included in Simon says Stamps Sentiments Strips Slimline Christmas.
The blue frame on the front of the card was die-cut out of a piece of acrylic paper that I previously painted using Fairy Tale blue Arteza Iridescent Paint.
To add a texture over the card front panel, I applied Tim Holtz Crackle Paste, using Nuvo Media Spatulas through SSS Ramsom Dots and Stars stencil.
For additional contrast, I applied Black Soot and Walnut Stain Distress inks over the foliage and the front panel before adhering all the pieces together.
To die-cut the frames, I used Neenah Classic Crest 110 LB, and to die-cut the accordions I used Neenah Classic Crest 80 LB.
Instead of using colored card stock, I die-cut all the small details such as the gloves, scarf, hat, candy cane, buttons, and foliage frim Arteza Acrylic Paper that was previously painted using Arteza Iridescent acrylic paints.
The acrylic paper is 300 grams and its textured also add an organic look to the die-cuts. It looks like a canvas… so pretty
