You're Cool...Snow Globe Card!

I made this card for the November design team assignment for My Pink Stamper! The assignment was to make a card featuring a unique fold. I was inspired by the cards on the Just a Note cricut cartridge and wanted to design a similar fold. Here's the card I came up with:

The 'You're Cool' sentiments stamp is from the Lunchbox Thoughts stamp set from My Pink Stamper! I really love how versatile they are...they're not just for lunchboxes!


I used my gypsy to weld the shapes together: a long rectangle for the base, a shape for the back (an oval or square would also work), and then the shadow of the snowman on one side and the snow globe on the other. The snowman and snow globe are from the Doodlescharms cartridge. Here's how it looked on my gypsy:


And, here's the card laying flat.

Materials Used:
Cricut Cartridges - Doodlecharms and Gypsy Wanderings
Sentiments Stamp - Lunchbox Thoughts by My Pink Stamper
Cardstock - Core'dinations and DCWV (Glitter)
Snowflakes - Martha Stewart Punches
Twine and Baker's Twine
Black Pearls - Recollections


Thanks for stopping by!

What did you use for the plastic and did you sandwich it or just leave the back of the plastic showing? Did you cut the plastic with the cricut or by hand? thank you soooooo much for the help on my Christmas card. I was having such a hard time lining everything up the way I had it .. Thank you ...

I love your card. I've tried to copy it and can't seem to get the right layout. My sides don't line up and the snowman is a bit off. I've cut it out three times and it still doesn't line up. Can you please give me some ideas on how you made this card to line up?
Thanks

Hi, I just found this adorable card of yours on Pinterest. So cute! I see some others asking if you are sharing the cut file, if you are would you send it to me also? My son loves snow globes and I would like to make one for his birthday. Thank you for sharing.
