Merry Tex-Mas Snow globe card... take 2

I created this green snow globe card last year based on a card sketch by Allison Davis, and I wanted to redo the card using all Texana Designs Stamps, so I came up with this cream version and I think I like it even better!

I started by stamping the holly in various directions on the cream background paper, then I added a swirl of glue pen and some prisma glitter to the background to connect the holly stamps to where the snow globe stamp will be adhered. I stamped the holly to look like a "swirl" of Texas "snow".

Once the background was prepped, I stamped the holly images on white cardstock and cut them out and glued them on top of the stamped holly leaves. Tweezers worked great on these tiny stamped images!

For the snow globe image, I stamped it on white cardstock then colored it with my copic markers. I added dots of glitter to the snow globe image, then covered the glass part of the snow globe with glossy accents. Once it was all dried, I cut it out and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

To finish off the card, I cut a strip of green pattern paper and wrapped some ribbon around it. This whole section was attached to the card front with my Tiny Attacher staples.

Here's the finished card all by itself:

I couldn't find your email but I remembered you did a page on kinder eggs at archivers once when we were cropping. It's a good thing you didn't actually bring one back. Looks like you would have been detained at customs .... enjoy the article :)
