Angel Snow Globe

I made this card for the current Merry Monday 'Snow Globe' challenge.  I'm also entering the Crafty Calendar Challenge 'Things with Wings' and the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge 'Inlaid Die Cutting'.  As all the card came from my snippets drawer I'm heading over to the playground at Pixies's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Christmas Angels' Art Pad
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large, Presscut 'Merry Christmas'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Gold and dark blue pearl card

I die cut the image with the second largest circle die.  I then used the two largest dies to die cut and emboss a frame from gold pearl card.  The image and frame were attached to the card.  I cut two pieces of gold card for the snow globe base and die cut 'Christmas' in one of them (this die is actually 'Merry Christmas' but I have snipped the join between the two words so I can die cut them separately).  I attached the two pieces of the base with double sided tape.  I then die cut 'Christmas' from dark blue card and inlaid it into the base before attaching it with foam tape.  To finish I added a Wink of Stella to the image.

Such an elegant card Kath, a beautiful image - she looks fabulous in the snow globe.
In answer to your question, no there isn't a list - it's because they are PDF files, it's annoying having to look at them all individually isn't it!
