Every year, we have a tradition to check out the crazy holiday lights in my neighborhood with my brother, sister-in-law, and two little nephews. This year we all loved some cute frogs wearing Santa hats in one family's yard, so I had to incorporate this idea into my Christmas card for my brother's family.
I began by welding together two of the blackout version of the snow globe on the Cricut Christmas Cheer cartridge, at 5 1/2".
I adhered the circle layer, cut in patterned paper, and added a little bit of snow that I hand cut from glittered cardstock. The frog is from the Noah's ABC Animals cartridge, cut at 2 1/2". I added a Santa hat cut at 3 1/2" from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. Once the frog was adhered, I added another circle of clear cardstock, using 1/8" Scor-Tape around the edges of the circle. To cover up the Scor-Tape, I went around the edge of the clear cardstock circle with Zig 2 Way Glue, and sprinkled glitter on top.
My sentiment is from My Creative Time's All Around Christmas stamp set, and I heat embossed it with gold filigree embossing powder.
