I decided to use the beautifully coloured "There's a penguin in my Cocoa" image & background. I love the colour & the penguin is Oh So cute! Just makes me want to give it a big cuddly hug.
1st, I printed my image then I printed the background separately. To make my snow globe, I used the Spellbinders Standard circle LG die (The largest one) & traced out the outside parameter of the circle & drew in a simple base for the snow globe. Cut out the shape of the snow globe & then glue it in the center of my printed background.
I need to make hole in the snow globe so that the image would be seen. So, I carefully taped (with removable tape) the same circle die onto the snow globe & ran it thru my die cut machine so that I'm left with the silhouette of the snow globe which is securely glued onto my 6x6" background.
Using the circle template that I just cut out from the snow globe, I traced onto my image so that I know where to put the foam tape. Then I lined the foam tape around my pencil drawn line & poured heart shape sequins in. Glue a piece of acetate to conceal the sequins. Now, I positioned the image to be aligned with the snow globe silhouette piece I had earlier on top of the image & glue them together.
Then I cut out a 8x8" pistachio coloured CS & made a box with no lid, just 4 flaps at the side & a thickness of 3mm (same thickness as the foam tape) & glue the snow globe shaker piece on top. Opps.... I hope you guys r not lost trying to understand what I'm saying. It's really hard trying to put this down in words without showing you. :(
Finally, made a simple card & glue the box like shaker snow globe down on the front of the card & decorated the inside of the card.

I added Tattered Angels-Glimmer Glam (Colour: Chandelier) on the actetate. To make the acetate look like uneven hand-blown glass. Can you see?
