Today, I am going to share a fun card with you that I found a template for online.
It's a snow globe card. Who can resist a snow globe. You know you just have to pick it up and shake it to see the snowy world inside come to life. This card has that feel.
Using the template, just cut the shape on a folded piece of heavy white card stock.
Then cut the base from designer paper of your choice. A circle for the globe part.
I used a Spellbinders circle for mine.
Snow Couple stamp -Designs Unlimited (304G)
Red wood grain paper is Basic Gray
Colored with Copics
I used sparkly white embossing powder for the snow.
Just covered the circle with Versamark clear watermark ink
sprinkled with the embossing powder and heated. Glitter will work, but
tends to come off more easily. You could also cut a circle from
Acetate to look like glass.

Deer - Northwoods (P8755)
Stamped with clear ink and embossed in gold
Colored the scarves with Copics
Inked around the edges with Broken China distress ink.
The base of the snow globe was cut from gold paper
then run through a holly branch Cuttlebug folder.
(love this effect) Red sparkly ribbon attached.

The inside sentiment on both cards is "I wish we could spend Christmas together"
and is by Motivet (CM034G)
These are quick, really cute cards. The globe can be stamped with whatever is your favorite Christmas stamp. Kids would love these too!
Hope you have time to try this little card.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Monday.  Until later............
