Christmas Greetings to Ring In The Holidays

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!  Renee Robbins from Scrap Owl back with you today to share some warm Christmas greetings.  It's exciting to be back here with you and finally reveal the second creation I made using the Unique Laser Designs Snow Globe - Bell die cut.

As you may remember, I shared my snow globe shaker card last month. I started out with a chipboard version of the Unique Laser Designs Snow Globe - Bell.  I cut out the bell and ribbon from the interior of the snow globe in order to use it as the foundation of the shaker.  However, with a design this beautiful, there is no way I was going to let the bell and ribbon go to waste!

I know what you're thinking.  "How could she cut it apart?!?"  Yes, I know.  This piece is beautiful as one complete image, but sometimes you need to think outside the box - or in this case, snow globe.  There are so many different ways to use these incredible designs and I love being able to come up with something new.

So, here's what I did with the ribbon and bell.  Does it measure up to your expectations?  Have I earned back your trust after cutting the design apart?  I sure hope so!! This clean and elegant Christmas card will be going to my Grandmother who I know will love it.

I used Ranger Gold Alcohol Ink to color the bell.  Those alcohol inks just add the perfect amount of shine to the Unique Laser Designs chipboard.  I then used my Imagine Crafts Lady Bug Memento Marker to shade in the ribbon.  I layered the ink from the marker until I got just the look I was searching for, and then applied a sprinkling of sparkle embossing powder.

Let me know what you think of the card and my choice to cut the bell and ribbon out from the snow globe.  Do you think that the two cards justify the alteration?  Either way, my hope is that these cards get you thinking about how you could use these amazing designs on your next project!

Stay Scrappy My Friends!

  1. What a gorgeous card. I really love the bell and ribbon on its own (as well as in the snowglobe, of course.) I think this is a fantastic idea !
