- Cut a 6 1/8" x 10 1/2" piece of patterned paper, and fold in half to create a card base.
- Die-cut the Snowglobe from the Snowglobe #2 set twice out of white cardstock. (Note: Set aside one of the inside cutout circle pieces of the globe for use later.) Trim one globe panel to 5 3/4" x 5" and the other to 5 3/8" x 4 5/8". Emboss the smaller globe panel with the Simple Snowflakes embossing folder. Set aside the two trimmed globe panels. Cut a 5 3/8" x 4 5/8" piece of watercolor paper, and paint a sky using different shades of blue watercolor paints. Once dry, splatter some white acrylic paint to create the look of falling snow. Set aside to dry.
- Die-cut the spindly tree from the Home for the Holidays set three times out of white cardstock. Paint the spindly trees using shades of green watercolor. Once dry, adhere the trees together with liquid adhesive at their centers only. Lift up the branches on the top two trees to create a dimensional tree. Set aside the tree.
- Die-cut out of the inside circle globe piece set aside in step 2 the mountain shape from the Snowman Scene set. (Note: By using the inside cutout circle of the globe, the hillside is die-cut at the exactly right size for the bottom of the globe.) Paint the hillside using watercolor shades as desired. Set aside to dry.
- Die-cut out of watercolor paper the snowman from the Snowman Scene set and holly from the Festive Greens set. Paint the snowman pieces and holly using watercolor shades as desired. Set aside to dry.
- Layer and adhere to the card front the painted sky, the large white Snowglobe panel and the small embossed Snowglobe panel, all with adhesive foam tape for dimension of each layer.
- Using a foam brush, add liquid adhesive to the top of the hillside, and sprinkle with glitter. Adhere the hillside inside the bottom of the globe with adhesive foam tape.
- Build the snowman body with adhesive foam tape, and adhere the additional pieces of the snowman to the body with liquid adhesive. Adhere the snowman to the card front on the hillside with adhesive foam tape, tucking the bottom of the snowman slightly under the hillside.
- Adhere with liquid adhesive the spindly tree to the left of the snowman, and attach a bit of gold twine around the tree branches. Add tiny gold sequins to the gold twine with liquid adhesive to give the appearance of ornaments or lights on the twine. Add another piece of gold twine in the snowman’s hands, and again add gold sequins to the twine with liquid adhesive.
- Adhere the holly pieces to the top of the Snowglobe with liquid adhesive.
- Die-cut the small panel piece from the Snowglobe #2 set out of Distress Woodgrain Cardstock, and use watercolor paint to stain it brown. Once dry, stamp a Christmas sentiment with a clear embossing ink pad. Sprinkle white embossing powder on top, and shake off the excess. Use a heat tool to set the sentiment. Attach the small panel to the bottom of the Snowglobe with adhesive foam tape.
