Making a Flat Card Take Two- Swanky Snow Globe Card!

Hi~

** Woohoo! This card was selected as a Featured Designer for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge on 12/9/13 **

If you saw my post yesterday, then you will understand the post today! :-) I had every intention of making a flat card for a certain mailing...in my design process, I just couldn't finish the card without a bow and a double one at that. So, I am back today with my 2nd attempt to make a flat card.  I decided to make another snow globe card. In doing this, I knew I would be able to make a card with NO BOW! :-) However, I did add some foam tape, so technically I think I failed, but enough to pass the mailing inspection. :-)

So here it is!
I started with a Snow Globe File and made it into a card. I stamped my sentiment from Paper Smooches: Chilly Chums. Next I built the globe scene using images from Chilly Chums and Swanky Snowdudes
So what do you think??? Did I pass the "flat" test??? Simple, but pretty cute. I am partial to snowglobes and sweet snowmen! 

I am going to join in again at Paper Smooches Sparks - Anything Goes, Paper Issues - Christmas, Just B Creative - December Linky Party, Curtain Call Countdown to Christmas2 Creative Chicks - Christmas/Winter, Sunday {Fun}day - December Linky Party, Scrapping Everyday Miracles - Christmas Theme.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

How delightful, Tammy! I just love your sweet snowglobe :)

Darling card, Tammy! I love snowmen & snow globes, too. I've started mailing & just some foam tape passes as flat. I had to pay extra for one with just a knotted ribbon, but sometimes there's no way around it--LOL!

Your card definitely didn't pass the flat test yesterday, Tammy, but it definitely DID pass the perfection test!

And this card definitely does pass the flat test AND the adorable test!!

Geezo, I sound like a teacher, which I'm NOT! You know ... sometimes my mental mouth just starts yammering away and I JUST type what it says ...

To recap, GREAT job! A perfectly delightful mailable card!! Hugs, Darnell

Totally passes! Foam tape seems to be OK - at least I haven't had any problems with it so far, knock wood.
This card is GENIUS and I can't love that shaped base any more. It's not possible!
