Snow globe Christmas Card

I have made this card using the Sue Wilson Snowglobe and Cottage Snow Globe Scene die. I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with blue, silver and then white card. I have used embossed white card on the bottom, I embossed the white card using the Creative Expressions snowflake lattice folder. On the join of the white card I have used self adhesive lace ribbon from my stash. I cut the snow globe in silver. I cut the bottom of the snow globe in green and carefully used the negative pieces to fill the holly. I have cut the "Merry Christmas" sentiment in blue and silver card and slightly offset them when sticking them down
