Simon’s Snow Globes Cards

Hey card making friends, welcome back.  Today I have 3 Simon’s Snow Globes Cards to share with you.  These are part of another fabulous release from Simon Hurley over at Spellbinders.

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. See below for my full disclosure.

Simon's Snow Globes Cards

The Simon’s Snow Globe etched Dies set is the main one and it has the circle and base to create the snow globes as well as the village and Santa scene (my white card).  Then, there are 3 additional sets, the Woodland Scene (my blue card), the Snowman Scene (my purple card), and the Nativity Scene.

View the entire NEW RELEASE HERE

Please Note.  There are embossing folders used for my card backgrounds which are also part of this release, however they have not arrived at Spellbinders yet, so we will let you know when they are ready to be released.

Simon’s Snow Globes Cards – Santa Scene.

Cut the circle from Waterfall cardstock and splatter with white acrylic paint.

Next, se the dies to cut the village and snowbanks from white cardstock.  The trees from white glimmer and back the houses with scraps of brushed gold cardstock so it shines through the windows.

Then, cut the base from Mirror Gold and the sentiment from white and glue together.

Finally, add the village to the circle, then using foam tape, add the front snowbank, larger house, and trees.  Embellish with the two gold lampposts.

Emboss the 401/4 x 5-1/2 white card front with the snowflakes embossing folder before attaching to an A2 sized white card base.  (4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″).

Simon’s Snow Globes Cards – Woodland Scene Card:

Start with a piece of Cosmic Sky blue, run through the snowflake embossing folder.  Gently pass a white pigment ink pad across to highlight the embossing and then attach to a top folding A2 sized white card base.

Next, cut the circle out of white cardstock and use Prize Ribbon and Scattered Straw Distress Oxide Inks to add the sky.    Cut two snowbanks and glue them to the circle, trimming off any excess.

Then, Die cut the trees in white and gray and layer them so the gray looks like a shadow.  Cut two evergreens, using a light and dark green for depth, and the deer which is cut from Portobello and ink blended with Gathering Twigs Distress Oxide Ink.

Finally, cut the base from silver cardstock, the sentiment from a scrap of the blue and glue everything down.

Simon’s Snow Globes Cards – Snowman Scene

Start by embossing the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Lilac Blossom card stock with the poinsettia embossing folder and attaching it to the front of a top folding white A2 sized card base.

Next, use a piece of watercolor paper, treated with Lindy’s Gang Magicals in the blues and purples, and cut the globe circle.  Cut a snowbank from white, the birch trees from the Woodland Scene set in White, and the larger evergreen tree from two shades of green.  Use scrap from the circle and die cut the ornaments for the tree.

Then, cut the snowman from Flock Transfer sheets (this makes your snowman soft and fuzzy).  Cut his hat from black, and I decided to cut the base from black as well, as it helps to anchor the image.  The sentiment is cut from gold, with a black white piece behind to make the letters pop.  His scarf and hat detail are also cut from a watercolor paper with Lindy’s Magicals applied.

Finally, I used Glossy accents on the tree decorations to make them resemble shiny balls.

This is a totally fun set of dies to play with for your Christmas Card Making.  They work up quickly, and use up lots of scrap.  You can also mix and match the dies to create other scenes as well.  I have a bunch of left over pieces on my work table, which will become another card very soon.

  1. Loving your embossed backgrounds, Sandi. They add so much texture and interest to the cards. The colors in the snowman card are great.

    1. thank you Gayle, I really had fun with these. The third one I made was the snowman, so I was relaxed, had figured out all the dies, and just really went for that one. It helped that there was a beautiful piece of background paper laying on my work desk from a past weekend project, LOL

  2. All three are fabulous Sandi but I adore the top card with all that blue white and gold and the little village with the reindeer – stunning!

  3. Its so goregeous! You have such fantastic ideas. Always inspiring me. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work with us❤
