Snow Globe - Cute Christmas Deer card

Hey Crafty Friends,

Today I'm sharing a card I made adapting a hot air balloon die into a snow globe. Don't you just love it when a die in your stash can work in more than one way! This is exactly what the Heffy Doodle hot air balloon die can do for you! 

To start I took the main hot air balloon piece and ink blended down a sky look with Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled glass. Use a little water to splat on top of the ink to create a snowy look, I also added some Copic Opaque White ink to splatter on too. I then took the little town border dies by Heffy Doodle and cut this from a white piece of card stock to add into the globe section. Ink the bottom up with a little Tumbled Glass to help it blend in with the rest of the globe.

For my images I am using the Deer to Me stamp set by Heffy Doodle. I have coloured them using Copics and add some dotting over the images using the Pear Blossom Press White Gel Pen so it gives the feel they really are in the snow!

Now to make the bottom section of your globe, I have taken a piece of scrap card, ensure the top part of the card is already straight, if you need to trim across the top so it's straight. Take the main part of the Hot Air Balloon die to use as a guide and rest it at the top of your of card, take the 2 curved cutting pieces in the set and stick these down either side of the main balloon section. Run this through your dies cutting machine.
Now take a stitched die and create a stitch at the top and then also again at the bottom, I have created my stitch at the bottom just by where the curve bends back out. I then trimmed the bottom straight under this stitch. I hope this makes sense, if anyone has any questions please feel free to leave a comment and I will assist in any way I can!

Why not try and use something in your stash in a different way! 

Until next time, happy crafting!
