Christmas Snow Globe - Crafts Beautiful

Hello Blog friends!

I'd like to show you another card I did for my Masterclass tutorial in the Christmas Special of Crafts Beautiful.

I did a lovely snow globe shaker card featuring the iconic truck and tree, this was created with the Silhouette using a gorgeous image file by Lori Whitlock.

What you need...

Die cutting machine: Silhouette Cameo
Design Store image: A2 Snow Globe Shaker Card Christmas Pick-Up (#154936) - Lori Whitlock
Card stock: white, lime, aqua, red, grey, black, brown, glitter

What you do...

1 Purchase the image and add to the Design Page. Ungroup the images, separate and cut out in the relevant colours.

2 Crease and fold the blank. Attach the back panel, globe panel, dotty circle and the hill.

3 Assemble the truck and attach to the blank.

4 Stick the globe apertures together and attach the sentiment.

5 Glue the acetate to the red circle and stick to the front of the globe aperture.

6 Place the snowflakes around the truck. Glue the globe aperture in place making sure there are no snowflakes trapped. Add a large snowflake to decorate.

I used a thin chipboard so had to cut several of the apertures. Depending on the thickness of the chipboard you will need to experiment on how many to cut. Just make sure the snowflakes can move around easy.

This complete file cost £1.31 which is great value. You could also cut the basic snow globe aperture and add your own image and shaker parts.

I hope you like this fun little card. The file also includes the envelope. I cut another little truck and stuck it to the front of the envelope.

Just before I go, I would like to mention a fantastic online card company called Paperless Post. I did do a post previously on this fab company (click here to read the post). 

I recently sent six thank you cards, I chose a gorgeous little card featuring Paddington Bear. As the thank you message was the same to all six recipients all I had to do was add their email addresses and they all were sent at the same time. 

There are hundreds of cards to choose from and all occasions, you can customise your greeting if you choose and most cards cost around six coins. You can purchase coins which are held in your account and these will not expire. Some features are free, others may cost one or two coins. Recipient response cards are also included so the recipient can acknowledge receipt of the card.

If you would like to have a look at Paperless Post then feel free to click here to take you to their website. Paperless Post is great if you need to send that last minute greeting.

Thank you so much for popping by. TTFN!


  1. I love your snow globe, Colette! Just popping in to say hello and I hope all is well! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and all the best over the holidays!

  2. I don't see many blogs with Silhouette images and cuts, so this was a real joy to see, I love it, beautifully done, love the choice of colours.
