Peace and Joy Snow Globe

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

I can't believe that July 2023 is almost a wrap. The summer months seem to be flying by that's for sure. I have been busy with the harvest from my hubby's veggie garden. 

It seems I get the harvest taken care of and then another huge batch comes through. But, it will be wonderful to enjoy the delicious food this coming winter. 

I wanted to get some of my Christmas in July cards posted before July is over. I have several of them.

This one I made for the color challenge #952 on Splitcoaststampers. The colors we were to use were daffodil delight, melon mambo, granny apple green and coastal cabana. Optional was to use die cuts or a punch.
daffodil delight, melon mambo, granny apple green, coastal cabana

I love this color combo and thought I would try making a Christmas card. I wanted to use these new Folk Art dies from CottageCutz and the colors were perfect for the house and trees. So I decided to put them into a snow globe.

I used some older designer paper from the "snowflake splendor" collection for the background and then covered it with vellum for a softer appeal.

For the snow effect inside the snow globe, I used the softly falling embossing folder. I covered the images with a window sheet, but you can't really tell in this photo.

Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
