Cut it Up Holiday Shape Cards and 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Day 16 – Snow Globes

ciuheader4transparentI strategically scheduled Day 16 of my 25 Days of Christmas Crafting to coincide with my Cut it Up Holiday Shape card challenge. 🙂

This card was truly challenging for me.  The file is from Lettering Delights.  It’s part of their Snow Globe Cards Cut it Project. They’re all really cute, but, BOY!  Did I struggle to figure out how to put this together.  I’m not sure I’ve done it right, but it’s finished anyway.  I further complicated matters by making it a shaker.  Migdalia is an expert at making shaker cards, and I always admire hers.  I’m a novice.  I knew I didn’t want to use foam tape, so I cut out the brown layer about six times and stacked them on each other.  Then I realized I would need TWO transparency layers. I just kept trying and trying until I got something that seemed to work.  Here it is:
