Lawnscaping Challenge #13: Don't forget the inside

Ok, I am not going to lie...I had SO much fun making this card for the lates Lawnscaping Challenge!!! I won't dilly dally in sharing it is...'s a winter themed card...but I couldn't resist with what I wanted to make for the inside!! I used shades of Aqua and White for this front of the card, and did some masking to keep it flat. The only bulk I added to the front was the ribbon. I wanted to add most of the bulk to the inside!! I decided to break out my Silhouette and do some die cutting...and I came up with this...

Yep...I made a pop-up snowglobe!! I used my Silhouette to cut one solid snowglobe, then created the top layer by added an oval to the solid shape. I then attached a transparency to the top to hold in the beads. I used foam tape between the two layers making sure to cover every inch of space so the beads coulsn't escape!! I then used my PTI Woodgrain Impression Plate to add some texture to the kraft cardstock base (also cut from my Silhouette), then added LOTS of Walnut Stain distress ink to make it look like wood!! Love the extra detail on that and how the Kraft impressions have depth because of the distress ink!! I made my own pop-up by cutting cardstock, basically into an 'I' shape, and attached my snowglobe so it would 'pop-up' when the card was opened!! So Cool!!

Then I just stamped the "Let It Snow" sentiment from Frosties three times across the bottom. Love those Penguins and Igloo from Critters In The Snow!! Colored them in with some Copics then just sponged on some PTI Aqua Mist Ink around the edges before stamping a few Frosties Snowflakes around the left side (also in Aqua Mist ink).

I think this is the best challenge yet and I had so much fun making this card!! Thanks for stopping by!!
