Christmas Card Club Challenge #20 - Winter Wonderland

Hi Everyone,
Yay! It's Saturday, hope you all have a great weekend.
I'm sharing my card a day early for the CCC so as not to post twice in one day.
This time it was Christine's turn to choose a theme and she came up with a great one - 'Winter Wonderland.'
Now I have been watching Noreen from Flower Soft doing her stuff on Create and Craft recently and maybe a tiny little purchase took place :) so I had the Snow Globes CD-Rom to play with and this is what I made...

 
Side view of the lovely globe/ shaker card.
 
Recipe
Snow Globe CD-Rom
Music Ribbon
Stampin' Up Decorative Label Punch
Flower Soft
 
Simples ! ... it was so easy and fun to make. The longest part was cutting out the layers of the decoupage but other than that, very straight forward. I think I will be making some more of these they are very effective and you even get a template for the matching printed box for the cards to fit in.
 
Challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - 'S' is for Something Festive
CHNC Christmas Extra - September Challenge
Sister Act - #75 Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - #49 Anything Goes
 
 
 
Please visit the other ladies in the CCC, their links are in the tab at the top of my blog but don't forget I'm a day early so they probably won't have their post until tomorrow. You will also find there the countdown for how many days there are left to the big DAY - scary, lol.
See you all soon,
 
Lorraine

How lovely - think I could be tempted to some of those - love the card made from your purchase - super winter wonderland for Christine's CCC challenge and thanks for sharing for my CHNC challenge extra for September x

Definitely does not look simple at all! It DOES look beautiful & very much a winter wonderland (and wonderful!) scene. Love the snow globe look of the village that you achieved with the shaker top, and those small pieces look very fiddly. I'm sure this took a great deal of patience, but it certainly turned out a WOW of a card! TFS & Happy upcoming week.
