A Merry Christmas shaker card

Hello and Happy Monday my sweet friends! I am coming to you with a fun little card that I made just in time for Christmas! Can you believe Christmas is almost here? Well, with the help of Unique Laser Designs, some paper, glitter and some flowers I was able to create this fun shaker card that I am about to share with you all. Shilo, sent me this Snow Globe Snowman and as soon as I saw it I knew what I wanted to do with it

Merry Christmas

Here is the web image of the before

pretty cool the way it is, but I took it to the next level by trying out how it would look colored with Copic markers.

Not bad, the wood took the marker pretty well. The next picture is after I added some silver glitter paint to keep it soft, snow globes are after all made of glass. 

Right here you can see how cool it looks after applying some white Gesso as my base

and here we are after adding some Crystal glitter.

Mr. Snowman needed a base to his snow globe that stood out a little more, so I colored it in with a dark red Copic marker.

I flipped the snow globe around, adhered some acetate so my glitter would not fall out, and to give it some volume so it actually could be a snow globe and hold glitter,  I adhered dimensional foam tape all around the perimeter of the globe part and made sure I adhered it well, so none of the glitter would fall out.

Alright, after taking the backing off the foam tape I added some silver German glass glitter and Crystal glitter. To back the globe part,  I cut a circle and adhered it to,  and by choosing silver paper it really gave it the desired look I was going for!

To finish my card off I adhered a sentiment and an arrangement of some greenery and flowers to complete my snow globe shaker card.

Here is a close up to really show off the glitter inside the globe.
