Snow Globes Christmas Mini Cards

  Buon Natale! Merry Christmas!

I always struggle when it comes to make cards for my loved ones 'cause most of them do not speak English at all and I own very few Italian sentiments that can match my cards.. I was really happy when Mama Elephant ladies included a "Buon Natale" in the Snow Globes Scenes stamp set a couple of years ago! These mini cards were very quick and easy to make: off course I had to make them like a rainbow LOL

I stamped four times the globe from Mama Elephant - Snow Globes Bitties stamp set using Lawn fawn Black Jet ink and then stamped different Mama Elephant - Snow Globes Scenes inside of them. I used Copic markers to color them, trying to use different shades for every little scene. Once they were done, I cut them out using the coordinating die and I splattered them with Ranger Distress Stain in Picket Fence.

I also stamped four plates with the Buon Natale sentiment and colored two of them with grey Copics and two with yellow Copic to make them look like silver and gold, then I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

For the backgrounds I trimmed four 2,5" squares and ink blended them using Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick, Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin and Wild Honey, then later splattered it with Gold and White Gansai Tambi Watercolors.

I prepared four 3" white card bases and glued the ink blended squares over them, then I added the snow globes and the sentiments using foam squares.

I'm using this card for entering Mama Elephant #bemeguest2022 Contest, Simon Says Stamp Instagram Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
