I truly love having time off from work because it allows me to sleep in and then make cards throughout the day and into the late night. I could get used to this.

I wanted to share a card I made using Rubbernecker's "Zac" (SKU:596-01).

First, I used my Cricut, along with the cartridge "Cricut Cheer" to cut the shape of the snowglobe...twice, once with X-Press It cardstock and once with a glossy light blue cardstock.

Using the X-Press It globe, I stamped Zac using Marvy black dye ink. I then masked Zac with a Post-It note and sponged the following dye inks to make the background, also using a mask for the line of snow: Distress Ink Spun Sugar, SeaShells Seashell Pink, Distress Ink Tumbled Glass, Adirondack Sail Boat Blue, and Adirondack Stonewashed. Then, after removing the masked, I colored Zac using Copic markers, and added Crystal Stickles at the horizon line. Falling snow was added using Copic Opaque White using a paintbrush.

I then cut out a circle of acetate to place on top of the circled globe, to appear as glass.

I cut off the base of the snowglobe made with the glossy light cardstock and placed it on the bottom of the X-Press It snowglobe. I sponged some Adirondack Sail Boat Blue along the edges of the base.

I placed the completed snowglobe onto a panel of patterned paper from Me & My Big Ideas. I paper pierced around this panel. A sheer white bow and a snowflake brad put the finishing touches on this card.

I sure appreciate that you visited my blog today! Thank you so much. Enjoy your day.
