TTHP DT: Stitchy Bear wood eld snow globe

Hello Everyone!

Hope you're having a happy Monday. Today I'm showcasing a shaped card for TTPH's 62nd Blog Challenge. WOW!

I been pretty busy but still trying to cut in some time for crafting... literally... I'll explain. Ha!

So since I've been a little under the weather and not enough hours to complete certain tasks I've been trying to find ways to cut in some time. So I didn't have time to set up my Cricut... cause it's boxed for the moment and I put away my Silhouette wires. My hubby and I have been moving things around the house and getting rid of stuff.... don't worry my crafty stuff isn't going anywhere. LOL So besides that I was low on time and that I'm a little bit lazy at times.... I decided to hand cut my snow globe card. Yup, I centered my largest circle Spellbinder on an A2 card and traced lightly with a pencil on the outer part. For my image I lightly as well traced but on the inner part of the circle without tracing over the feet. For the blue layer I actually used my Cuttlebug because I already had it next to my desk and I still needed an in between layer. For the Snowflakes I used two Martha Stewart punches that came as set and I rarely use them as corner punch or a border punch. I always use them solely for the snowflakes what a shame right? LOL So that was it and it didn't take long. What took longer was trying to make a nice bow... which I still feel that I failed miserably. I'm not used to working with that type of ribbon- it's a little harder to manipulate and it's a little thicker than I'm used to.

Okay so enough chatter... Here is my card.

I colored the image with Copic markers. 
I lightly used some drying Colorbox inks to shade around the edges
then I added dots light dots to the background and drew in some snow mounds.

I colored in some white snow with my Sharpie extra fine point paint pen for white snow
and with my Sakura gellyroll for the shimmer

Wasn't too bad and it didn't take me too long. 
The longest part was the coloring and then trying to fix the box.

Well, I hope you can join us this week at
