Cosy Winter Snow Globe Christmas Card

Cosy Winter Snow Globe Christmas Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Grab your scarf and mittens and join me for a peek inside this Cosy Winter Snow Globe Christmas card. I happen to love snow globes.  My Great Aunt Norah had a wonderful snow globe collection when I was a little girl.  Tiny white churches, children skating on icy ponds, neat and tidy villages decked out in holiday greenery,  reindeer and fir trees filled the heavy glass globes of these beautiful worlds.  And I, like a benevolent giant from outside that magical universe, loved to shake them and bring to life a whirling blizzard inside the dome.  As the snowfall settled to a few drifting flakes, the scene within once again settled into a momentary calm.  Then I just couldn’t help myself, and had to shake it up all over again.  Can you relate?

So imagine my delight when I opened my November Ribbon Club this month and found this charming Winter Neighborhood Satin Ribbon waiting there for me!  I knew immediately that I wanted to pair it up with this snow globe image from P13’s Cosy Winter paper collection.

Building the Layers

Cosy Winter Snow Globe Christmas Card by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

  • Begin by creating a 5 1/2″ square card base from burgundy cardstock.
  • Then cut a 5 1/4″ square of cream cardstock.
  • Next, mat a 4 7/8″ square of the tag collage paper on a slightly larger panel of green cardstock.  .
  • Now adhere the Winter Neighborhood satin ribbon along the bottom edge.  Leave the ends long and wrap around to  the back side to create neat and clean edges.
  • Then wrap the JOY Sherry Satin ribbon around the top edge .
  • Cut a 1″ wide belly band from evergreen paper.  Center and adhere.  Now wrap this with Tan Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Winter Neighborhood Satin Ribbon.
  • Next, mat the 4″ square snow globe image on a slightly larger square of green cardstock.  Locate the ephemera snow globe from the cut apart page.  Add glitter and small star sequins to the globe.  When it has dried, back it with foam tape and adhere over the snow globe image on the 4×4 square.

  • Now fussy cut the pine branch, add glitter, back with foam strips and adhere.  Tie a burlap string bow and top with a flower.
  • Glitter a Reneabouquets snowflake and adhere in the corner.  Add a flat back pearl to the center.

Finally, create a bow cluster with Vintage Christmas Plaid Ribbon.  Top with burlap string bow, faux greenery and tuck in some glittery gold stars.

A Peek Inside

Create a pocket inside the card.  Line it with the Merry Christmas Satin and tuck in some wintry chocolate treats for the perfect finish!

This is a great little gift for friends, neighbors and co-workers.  It’s quick to make, and fun to receive.

I hope I shared some tips, tricks, and ideas for using this month’s Ribbon Club.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

    What a delightful card, Kathy! The snow globe is a true winter icon. The cold weather season is the ideal time for your tea party enclosures. This month’s RRR set is a treat. It has ribbons for all types of designs, folk art, classic, rustic…I think it’s one of my favorites to date. tfs-stay well. Hugs.
