Believe in Magic Creative Cuts with Nichol!

Hello there! Nichol here today with a Designer Series Christmas card share showcasing the new Believe In Magic Creative Cuts dies. The snowglobe design of the Believe In Magic Stamp Set and coordinating dies lends itself to one of my favorite kind of cards to create: shaker cards!
I combined the Believe In Magic Creative Cuts dies with the Femme Frames Creative Cuts dies to create a fun snowglobe shaker card complete with reindeer, citscape and starry night sky!

To create the front of the card, I first die cut some light gray cardstock using the Femme Frames Creative Cuts stitched rectangle die and added "stripes" with the wide stripe border stamp from the Basic Borders Stamp Set. I stamped the greeting from Believe In Magic using dark gray and red inks.
I stamped the snowglobe base on white cardstock using a dark gray ink and die cut it with the coordinating Believe In Magic Creative Cuts die. Using the snowglobe base for reference I positioned the globe and used a bit of tape to hold it in place and ran it through my die cutting machine to create the "window".

I die cut a piece of transparency and glued it to the backside of the front panel of the card and added two layers of foam tape around the opening to "hold in" the Martha Stewart Snow Glitter.

To finish the inside of the snowglobe I stamped the cityscape and reindeer from the Believe In Magic Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using black ink and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I stamped the moon with yellow ink and die cut it as well. I die cut another piece of light gray cardstock using the Femme Frames Creative Cuts stitched rectangle die and adhered the "scene" to the backing piece. Then I added the glitter to the piece with foam adhesive and adhered the backing to sandwich the shaker elements inside the card.

Layered ribbons, sequins and baker's twine tied around the snowglobe complete the card.

  4. Tried my hand at making a duplicate of your card; you forgot to mention how much work it was! My shakers were too small and got stuck to the sides of the double sided tape. I'll have to try again when I'm not so frazzled. . . lol. Can you tell I loved your card!! Thanks so much for the tutorial, love your work.
