The snow globe in this Snow Globe Christmas Card may look familiar. My Christmas bubble card used the same images. I wanted to try the new feature of Design Space that lets you copy images from one project to another. If you want to do this, first, select the piece and along the top row then select EDIT. Next select COPY. Then, go to the project you want to copy it to and select EDIT again. PASTE should now be available. Finally, hit PASTE and tada it’s there. This will save sooooo much time!! This new feature came with the latest update from Cricut.
I did this Snow Globe Christmas Card in shades of blue. The base card paper does not have to be two sided but it does have to be really heavy (110 lb. wt. at least. It needs the extra support to stand up to the heaviness of this card. The only paper that needs to be two sided is the white globe back, but white is a color after all, so any paper would do, really. I made the little kid the same color as the “Merry Christmas” because I wanted to see if you could change the color of parts you copy/pasted. You can. The white background would look good with a pattern on either side or even both. I wouldn’t do patterns on anything else though.
Cutting the Snow Globe Christmas card
Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing. I used a green pen on this card. I’m not sure why. And I used an Access font called Be Mine in the Design Space file. I don’t remember what I used in the SVG File. Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut? Read the trick here.
Assembling the Snow Globe Christmas Card
First carefully re-crease the small score line between the globes of the base card. Next attach the back of the snow globe from the inside of the card. Also attach the snow swoosh to the other side of the inside. Then close the card to protect the fold line. Next, attach the two adult snow people to the front of the card. Finally, attach the child snow person and the “Merry Christmas”.
And your Snow Globe Christmas Card is done! It fits into an A7 envelope for mailing.
