Snow Globe with Reindeer Shaker Card

Good morning.  This is my card for the Christmas Card Cub which I'm afraid was due yesterday.  The subject is Animals at Christmas so with apologies to Kate, who chose the theme,  here is my offering.

My Cards

7" square base card - Anna Marie 
Falling Snow e/f - Creative Expression
Snow Globe die - Creative Expressions
Santa's Reindeer scene - Creative Expressions
Snowflake dies - The Works
silver mirri card - Crafter's Companion
silver non-shed glitter card - Crafter's Companion
Twinklets Diamond Dust inside snowglobe


 6" square card base - Rymans card 
Image - Winter Wolf - Craftsuprint
turquoise glitter card - Hobbycraft

I found this image whilst searching through my external hard drive for something else, so I've had it a long time but not used.  And that's criminal because it is a beautiful image.  Such a magnificent animal.  No sentiment yet because I'm not sure who it will be going to.


This is a card that is totally computer generated using my Greeting Card Factory programme. I have messed up the central image a bit.  Although on the picture it does like a circle in real life I must have stretched it a wee bit so it is not quite a perfect circle.  Looks okay though.  I quite enjoy playing around and finding different images, merging them and adding borders.  Just added some glitter and printed it onto line card stock.

Once again  Kate I apologise but I hope youare happy with the results and that it fits your callenge.

Take care.

Hardly all that late Christine, but well worth the wait for these stunners. Absolutely beautiful every one of them. The snowglob is stunning in all that silver with the beautiful deer. The second card is gorgeous, I love the wolf, what a wonderful image, beautifully embellished too. Third card is also beautiful, lovely colours and design, never apologise, Kate x x

Beautiful collection of cards Christine. Love how the wolf looks so serene and friendly and the shaker card is stunning. TFS. Zoe x

These gorgeous cards are well worth waiting for. Each one is just so beautiful, and the wolf looks very 'otherworldly' with the falling snow. I didn't see any flaws in your stag's circle either...and I think it's very clever that you can digitally combine elements to create these wonderful cards! TFS & have a great week.

Hi Christine! Youve inspired me to create. Thanks for sharing your work. How did you get the acetate raised in card #1? At least it looks like it popping out the card. Is it?
