Volvo Snow Globe Trotter

     Welcome to the last challenge at The Male Room for this year, we will be taking a break for Christmas, join us again on the 7th January for a new challenge.
    This fortnight we are celebrating Christmas for our men folk, anything Christmas as long as it's masculine, card, gift or decoration.
     This is a card made using a photograph of a friends lorry. The snow globe is cut out from a printed download, it fits quite nicely over a frame built from foam tape that holds the glitter and caviar beads topped off with acetate. I always add a small amount of caviar beads to a shaker to keep the glitter on the move.
     The backing is black card stamped with Perfect Medium and dusted with blue mica powder. This is mounted on a goldish blue card.
     The sentiment is a die cut mounted on foam pads. A simple but personal Christmas card that I hope is well received.


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
