Materials and Tools:

Mrs. Grossman's Atmosphere Vellum (3 1/2" square)
Photo Card with Circle Die Cut
1 module Photoessence Christmas Garland Design Line (DL)
1 module Scrapbook Blocks, Weathered Vane
1 module Jewel Tones Design Lines (DL)
1 module Christmas Captions
1 module Reflections Star of Bethlehem
Acetate (3 3/4" x 7 1/4") or premade pocket
Glitter

Steps:

1. Begin by creating the pocket out of acetate for the glitter. Fold the acetate in half and seal the sides with tape. Premade plastic pockets can also be used for this purpose. Place a small amount of glitter into the pocket, and attach the pocket to the inside of the die cut window. Make sure that all four edges of the acetate are taped down to prevent leakage.

2. With the card open to the inside, center the vellum square on the left-side flap. Place the "Peace on Earth" from Christmas Captions and the Star of Bethlehem on the left-side flap so that it is evenly framed by the die cut window when the card is closed. Using double stick tape or glue, seal the left-side flap over the acetate pocket.

3. Cut the snow globe base from the largest rectangle on Scrapbook Blocks. Place the base on the front of the card, centered below the die cut window. Add Christmas Garland at the top of the base. Using foam tape, "pop" an additional swag of Garland on top of the first swag. Trim the top and bottom of the card with the red Jewel Tones DL.
