Global Holly Shaker card

 I've been working on this card for over a week now, trying to get it to look like the vision in my head.  The minute I saw this gorgeous Scrolls Work image of Holly I knew I wanted to make her into a shaker card snow globe. That took quite a bit of engineering, I'm so glad I persisted.  The finished size of the card is 5 x 7.  I stamped her in black Stazon ink on to the gold card stock and the clear acetate.   I colored her in on the back side of the clear image so it did not cover up all of the detailed shaded lines in this stamp.  Then I added a circle of doubled up foam mounting tape to the back of the acetate image then added the snow and the front of the acetate card.  I trimmed and mounted the gold cs on top of that.  That's when I decided to color in her skin, so I stamped her again on to white cs and cut out her arms and face.  I had already closed up the globe so I added these pieces to the back of the clear card which really gives her a neat dimensional look.  Then I added some light blue cs to look like the sky and a darker blue to match her dress and frame the card.  So the layers are gold, clear, foam tape, snow, clear, arms and face,clear, light blue and dark blue.   The Christmas bulbs were made with a punch, 1large whole circle of foiled cs, and the glittered adhesive cs was made by aiming the punch to only cut a sliver of circle at a time which gives it the nice curves.  I also cut the circle in the gold cs with my Nestie.  I hope you stop by Scrolls Work to see all of their gorgeous unmounted rubber stamps.
