Snow Globe Wanna Be

This is as close to a snow globe as I am going to get this year - a shaker card.  Someday I am going to try to make a snow globe card.  I have seen such cute ones.  This is only the second shaker I have ever made.  Stamp TV had a challenge to make one so I tried my hand at it.   It was a fun challenge and I was actually in the mood to play with it.
It was difficult to get a good photo showing the snow which is Mainstay Crystal Glitter.  Lots of cloudy, rainy weather here, so the lighting was not conducive to a good shot.


Can you see the "snow" in the window?  I put a tiny bit of glue on the branch so the snow would always stay there but you just can't see it in this photo.
I used GKD set, Winter Foliage.  Designer paper is an old piece from my stash.  Love the muted colors.
Base is Kraft and the green frame is Stampin Up Artichoke.

Stamptacular Sunday - Christmastime
Stamp and Create - sparkly Christmas
Really Reasonable Ribbon - anything
DYSU - Christmas
