Starry Night

Good morning, MaryAnn here and I’m back with another project.

Today’s project uses Trinity Stamps Snowglobe Card Die Set and PearBlossom Press EZ-Lights, I have said this before and I will say it again these are my absolute favorite of their product line!  For my card I only used the layering parts of the Snowglobe set as I wanted to create and A2 card with a Snowglobe on the front

First, I started by assembling my layers. This included a lightly ink blended snowflake background on the A2 card base, die cutting the first layers of the snowglobe for placement on the base, Then die cutting the layers again so I could ink blend a night time sky and die cutting a moon and some scattered stars. I reserved the second outline of the snowglobe for my globe front. After ink blending and die cutting the moon and stars, I placed this panel on the card base and used a pencil to mark where I wanted my lights to be placed. Once this was marked I attached a piece of velum behind the moon and stars panel to diffuse the light.

I placed my EZ-Lights with the button exactly where I want to be able to push down to turn the lights on.

Next up was assembly!! I die cut the little house and trees, lots of trees!! that are included in the die set and backed the house with a piece of velum and added a little red stickles to the heart.

I attached my ink blended background and started building my scene. Once I was happy I placed foam around the outside edge of the snowglobe and around the battery/switch

I then attached the top outline layer of the snowglobe to the front after adding a small snowdrift to cover up the bottom of the house and ensure the battery could not be seen.  I stamped the word press from the PearBlossom Press Stamp and Die Bundle
I stamped it onto the layer meant to cover the bottom of the snowglobe.  I also cut a piece of sturdy acetate as seen in the photo to slide in under the battery so that the battery would not drain by being turned on/pressed in the envelope.

Thank you so much for stopping by the Pear Blossom Press Blog today!  I hope you’ve enjoyed this fun light-up card!

Happy crafting, MaryAnn
