Picture Snowglobe

We made these snowglobe cards at my November Stamp Club Workshop. Everyone brought in a picture to put in the snowglobe and we turned each of our cards into a personalized memento. This particular Sheltie snowglobe is very special to me. As some of you know, our dear Sheltie Bella has cancer and lately we have had some rough days. This picture of Bella was taken around our neighborhood lake earlier this year, when she could still make it on longer walks. I will put this card on our mantle this year along with the one that I made of our son.

Lisa asked: I was wondering if the 'globe' is actually filled with liquid? It looks like it is in the photo, but if so, how did you seal it?
My snowglobe is not filled with any liquid. I just put the tiniest bit of Silver Glass Glitter in it before I sealed it. Mine is more of a shaker card. I have seen some snowglobes that have been filled with liquid, but I wouldn't count on the liquid-filled kind being a permanent keepsake. I think the adhesive would weaken and the liquid would eventually seep out. Here is a link to a blog that shows you how to do the water-filled kind: Tis a real Sweet Snowglobe. I hope this helps.

  1. Came over from SCS gallery to see what I could find out about your Sheltie. Bella is her name, but she's not well. Sorry to hear that. Love the snowglobe, both ways. TYFS

  2. Oh! My God. I think my heart stopped for a minute when I saw this card.Your Bella looks quite a bit like our sheltie Rose who just passed away at the end of September. We loved her so much and we miss her. Rose loved her christmas stocking and Christmas. So Christmas is going to be a little sad this year. Sorry to hear about your baby Bella. She is a beautiful girl. I wish I had that snowglobe image and the plastic cup. I would make one of Rose for our christmas tree. But in a ornament form. Love your card. Actually it would be a nice ornament for all our babies that have passed. Just wanted you to know that your card touched me. Thanks for sharing Cindy Milliron.(coco2764)

  3. I just signed up to follow your blog. Love your snowglobe card, what a wonderful way to show a pet so loved.

    I'm a relatively new SU! demo and your site is so inspiring, which is what I need at this point. Thanks so much for sharing your creaivity with the world!

  4. I just found your blog & saw this older post but you didn't give any directions. I was wondering if the 'globe' is actually filled with liquid? It looks like it is in the photo, but if so, how did you seal it?
    PS. I love your work!!
