Craft a fes­tive snow globe card for your loved ones this Christ­mas by fol­low­ing these six sim­ple steps. By Dorothy Wood

This four-piece snow globe die set from In­tri­cut is avail­able to buy for £12 from Hob­by­craft. www.hob­by­craft.co.uk


Us­ing foam pads around the edge, stick a square of snow-pat­terned paper be­hind the globe. Layer the panel onto black card with foam pads, then stick onto the base card.


Trim the other globes to add to the front, adding snow or star-pat­terned paper. Add a white la­bel and write the date. Punch sil­ver spots and stick one in each cor­ner to fin­ish.


Em­bel­lish the two blue lay­ers with a glitter pen. Stick onto the re­verse side of the ac­etate, pale blue first and then the mid blue. Stick the black die cut in place last.


There are three lay­ers of houses. Die cut the back layer in black, the mid­dle layer in mid blue and the large house in pale blue. Die cut the globe in white, sil­ver and black.


Stick a piece of ac­etate be­hind the globe and then stick the white globe into the aper­ture. Cut the top part of the sil­ver and base from the black globes and stick on top.


Add dashed lines to a 9.5x14cm piece of snow-pat­terned paper, dis­tress the edges then stamp and em­boss a greet­ing. Die cut the globe near the top of the panel.
