Top Dog Dies: Three More Takes on the Snowman Globe Die Set

Hope you get a chance to check out the Top Dog Dies blog today ... I'm showing three more takes on this Snowman Globe Die Set:

Here's a cute little tag you can make with just the head of the snowman. It also uses the mini tags die set.

Add this tag, along with some ribbon and mini pinecones and you've got a pretty topper for a tube of m&m's. I love these tubes, since they're small enough to make the m&m's stand very neat and orderly without putting forth any effort to stack them. These would make great presents for teachers, mailmen, neighbors, etc.

Here's another tag, but this one uses the full snow globe die. Cutting the snow globe out of white glitter paper makes it easier to leave it unadorned, except for a black hat.

I've used the base of the globe here as the perfect place to address the tag. The tiny "to" is from the mini tags die set and is a quicker alternative to heat embossing on a dark background.

The snowman is so detailed you can definitely use him as a focal point on a card. For this card I kept all the snow OUTSIDE the circle so the snowman is quite comfortable, protected and peaceful, like the sentiment says. To do this I left the negative piece of the die cut inside the circle, put a Winnie & Walter stencil on top, and sprayed with white glimmer mist. When I removed the negative piece, the inside of the globe was free from snow. The Winnie & Walter sentiment from Happy Christmas fits just perfectly on the snow drifts. I added a few layers behind the main panel to finish the card off.

Thanks so much for looking!!
