Shake it up a bit, Dutch Paper Crafts Snowflake Release


This is sort of funny, for this Memory Box Snowflake release at Dutch Paper Crafts, i decided to use the main die as it was "intended"...for a Snow Globe, but guess what?  I don't own the snowglobe die from Memory Box so i "winged" it.

For this card i used, Memory Box Snowflake Globe 98656, one of the dies from Peaceful Snowflake frame 98716 (small piece along the bottom of the base, probably intended for a sentiment), Precious Snowflake 98729 and the Snowflake Cutwork 98647.
I  also used the circle sentiment free online here at Bizzy Becs and enlarged it to 4.30". The animal stamp came with a magazine for free...however, any image you'd put inside of a snowglobe would look great!  I cut the Snowflake globe from a cereal box to get the "kraft" color i wanted.  Again, the foil is cut from kitchen foil (i used 3 layers at the same time).  The foil section in the center of the globe die is from the card i did with the foil Sussex Snowflake die.  You can't get the solid piece with this die you need the Sussex snowflake die..and then you use the "negative" piece.   Inside the card i used the Snowflake cutwork and backed the paper with black to make the cutwork "pop".   I also used the bottom of the smallest Precious Snowflake die and cut it out twice and rotated them to get this snowflake look.
