Lili Of the Valley - Christmas Launch #2

Hi everyone

I have another new Christmas/Winter digi stamp from the new collection from  Lili Of The Valley (LOTV) which launched on this week in their Etsy store.  The new stamps include cute mice, elephants and sentiments, they're gorgeous. :)

So today I made a snowglobe card, and I used one of the cute elephant digi stamps called 'Star Gazing' and a sentiments from the 'Christmas Wishes' collection. I coloured the stamp using my Copic pens and added a starry sky using distress oxides. I hope you like it. x

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
I trimmed down a piece of pretty Christmas paper, and added it to the front of a 6" x 6" white card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge.

I die cut the snowglobe circle frame 4 times from strong white card, then stacked and glued them together to create depth. The back section of the globe was die cut and then 4 different distress oxides were blended onto it. When the inks were dry, white chalk paint was flicked over the top to look like snowflakes.

I imported the sweet elephant digi stamp into my graphics program, then resized so it would fit inside the globe. The image was then printed directly onto colouring card stock, and die cut using the back panel of the globe. The image was coloured in using Copic pens apart from the sky, then fussy cut out around the tree line and elephant.  Glitter was added to the snow floor. The elephant and tree section was glued on top of the starry sky and then the white snowglobe frame was added over the top. To complete the snowglobe, the bottom section was die cut from blue glitter card then glued into place. Funky foam was added to the back of the globe, and then added to the centre of the card front.

To finish my card I added a white glittery star to the sky and a printed out sentiment which I die cut into a banner.
