let it snow!

Is this not CUTE! I saw this sketch and changed it up a bit by adding the "snow globe".
I've used a Sweet Treat Cup (116802) for the globe! Here's how.
Stamp out Sweet Snowglobe (120868) with Cherry Cobbler Classic ink (119669) twice.
Trim one of the bases off the snow globe and set aside. In a 3"x 3 1/2" piece of  Candy Cane designer paper (120809), punch a circle with 1 3/4" Circle punch (119850). While you have the punch out,
also punch out the globe from the stamped image and set aside. What I did next was to colour and cut out the little images from the second stamped snowglobe, pop them up with dimensionals (104430) and adhere them onto the globe that you have set aside. Then you will need to adhere the globe to a larger piece of cardstock, about 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" so that it will sit behind the treat cup and not fall through.
Take the Sweet Treat Cup and peel off the adhesive backing. Now add some Dazzling Diamonds (102023) for the "snow".
Here comes the tricky part! While holding the treat cup full of snow adhere the globe to the back of the treat cup making sure that it sits the way you would like it to. Phew!
Next you will poke it through the hole you punched in the cardstock/designer paper and add the base you set aside earlier.
The rest of the card is a piece of cake, just add some designer paper cut into blocks. The snowflake is the XL Snowflake punch (119852) with a Candy Cane Big Button (121718) set ontop, and a bit of Linen Thread (104199) as a finishing touch.
I hope all this made sense to you. If you have any questions let me know.
