* VIDEO – Holly Jolly Day 4 CDD October Release *

Written on Thursday, October 12th, 2017

   I’m back with my second post for Day 4 of the Craftin’ Desert Diva’s October Release! To read the first one, click here. Yes, you read that right. There’s a video!!!

   This card is featuring the little snow girl from the new set Holly Jolly and a little snowman from Christmas Wishes. As soon as I saw this little girl I KNEW I wanted to do a no lines coloring, but I had no idea what I wanted to do for the card. Well, since making my fox shaker card, I’ve been obsessed with this Shake It Up die set from CDD! So, I guess I’m making a shaker snow globe card again!

   I LOVE how the coloring turned out on them! It looks like those vintage valentines you see sometimes. Now, one thing I forgot about doing no lines coloring is it’s really difficult to hide your lines when you’re doing white, so you can see some of my lines, but I feel like that gives it that vintage look.

   I decided that I wanted to use the new Doodlebug Milk & Cookies paper pad to make my card & the background inside my snow globe. Inside the snow globe, I used Flower Soft in Artic White as my “snow”. I also put Nuvo Glitter Accents in Fresh Snowfall on the snow banks.

   For my sentiment, I really wanted to use this one from the new Christmas Wishes stamp set. I also knew I wanted to do it in pink foil and make some matching hearts to go inside the shaker. I cut out my sentiment with the Stitched In Circle dies and my hearts with the confetti from Pocket Pieces HI dies, ran them through my Mini Minc, and added an eyelet to the sentiment. The tag is tied to the snow globe with Lawn Fawn Silver Sparkle twine.

   To build up my shaker, I used 3 layers of adhesive backed foam that I cut out with my dies. So, you can see this card is VERY thick. I won’t send it through the mail on its own.

  I do hope I’ve inspired you to make some snow globes on your cards.
