Snow Globe Shadow Box Gingerbread Card Tutorial

Hi friends! I know I know it's a little early for some of you, but I have moved on to Christmas crafting. I was inspired by the Have a Holly Jolly Christmas Collection by Lori Whitlock and Echo Park. I loved all the gingerbread houses and baking elements. So cute. I saw this Snow Globe Shadow Box Card Gingerbread (SVG, Silhouette) and thought it would be perfect with this collection. 

This card comes together fairly easy. If you have a hard time with traditional box card assembly, try this version. I thought this was much easier. The toughest part is the tiny pieces used to decorate the gingerbread house. There are two inserts, the snow globe frame, and the decorative elements. All of the folds are mountain folds. I assembled the tiny pieces first. I used a fine tip glue bottle to get everything assembled then glued everything down on the inserts. The front insert has the round peppermint candies, and the back insert has the house. The door and the window are glued down after the house is in place. The decorative panels all glued to the outside of the snow globe frame.    

Once all of the outside panels were secure I flipped the card over and glued down the decorative background of the snow globe. I embossed mine with a snowflake embossing folder. The two inserts have tabs that will slide into the slots. I then gently folded the inserts over and slid the other tabs into the slots. I added glue the tabs on the snow globe base and folded the front of the card over and made sure everything was lined up and held for a few seconds while the glue took hold. 

Now it is time to decorate the front of the card. This card does have a print and cut sentiment, but my printer is out of ink. So, I used a few stickers from the Have a Holly Jolly Christmas collection to embellish mine. 

I love how this card turned out, so festive and sweet. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a lovely holiday!
