... and the Sky is Grey - Tina's Winter Snow Globe

Hello Crafty Friends!
Nothing says 'winter' quite like a snow globe!
Today Tina create the cutest winter snow globe with her Tim Holtz Snow Globe die and the gorgeous papers from our July Kit....

Hello every one! Today I have a Snow Globe made with the July Kit from AVSC.
In this project I used just the papers from the kit and a few bits and pieces from my own collection.

To start off I cut three snow globes using the Sizzix Snow Globe # 2 Die. I cut two in cardstock and one in acetate.
I also cut two of the base (here the picture shows the green side but I ended up using the other side) and a strip of cardstock 1" wide and long enough to go around the outer side of the Snow Globe. I scored the long strip at 1/8'' on both sides and snipped both sides up to the score line all the way along the length of the strip.

Next I glued one side of the strip around the acetate. 

Then I cut out some of the little lodges from the papers, a few of the ski lifts and a little snowman and inked all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The little mounds were cut from the same die set.

The little cut outs were glued on to the base and I did these in layers with foam squares so that I had three different layers. I added glitter to the snow mounds and the snow on the rooftops.

I then attached the front of the Snow globe with the acetate to the back and used the other cardstock piece to cover the edges of the folded strip. I added a strip of matching paper from the kit around the edge and then some trim from my collection around the front of the Snow Globe to again hide the edges of the strip. Finally, I added the base and reinforced it with foam squares, adding the words "Lift Pass" that I cut from papers in the kit and a snowflake from my collection. The little Snow Globe is complete.

 I hope you enjoyed this little Snow Globe tutorial.
