Snow Globe Cool Yule Card

Here's another fun Christmas card. I love snow globes and the snow globe die from A Muse Studio (a│s) was a must have item. I've made a couple of fun projects with it and can see many more fun things coming in the future. :)
I don't know if you can see it but I sprayed the globe with the shimmer spray after the trees and stars were stamped. I love the effect it gives the globe. :) I stamped the vanilla cardstock globe with the trees from Cool Yule in Cherry Ink. Then I stamped the stars in pebble and put a pile of them at the bottom to hopefully indicate that the globe has just been shaken and the stars are settling back in at the bottom. I sprayed it with the Stardust Shimmery Spray next and then layered it onto the sponged base. Another option would be to shimmer up the whole card front but I wanted just the globe to have shimmer. The base is onyx woodgrain and the sentiment is on the smallest labels 8 spellbinder die. The card base is the onyx polka dot cardstock and the words are Twas the Night Before Christmas cardstock. Love it!!! 

The card continues inside and the stars are falling from the sky like snowflakes. Isn't it fabulous that the inside of the a│s cardstock is white or cream? I love that!!! No layering needed. It makes me happy. :)  I'm kind of digging the trees in the cherry red ink. What do you think?

I was in a red/black/cream and white mood for my class on Monday so all four projects that we did fall in that color family.That's unusual for me but it was kind of fun! All of the products used on this card can be found on my secure shopping site: http://www.amusestudio.com/seleise

Check back soon because two more projects from my November class are coming. Have a wonderfully creative day!
