Dies/Punches with the Crafter's Cafe

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge theme is Dies/Punches. We're sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, My Stitch, and Art by Miran. I used "Snowglobe Winter Bird" by Bugaboo.

I popped up the front with a foam sheet, using a circle die to create a hole in the foam. After I hand-cut the snowglobe section on the image piece, I embossed it in my BigShot and inked the raised snowflakes with a shiny blue chalk ink. The shaker portion is covered with acetate & filled with Diamond Dust and punched-out stars. The border was punched from the same shiny blue cardstock that I used for the stars; I also used it for the background.

The sentiment is made of two stamps from a Ladybug Crafts Ink set that I got with an Australian Simply Cards magazine. I added some foam snowflakes for good measure!
