The snow is falling (trust me, I can see it out my window right now)! And wintery weather calls for wintery crafting. So, grab a few sheets of pretty paper, and let’s make a frosty little snow globe card together!

I have been having a lot of fun trying my hand at cardmaking lately! And, while I was searching for unique kinds of card folds a month or two ago, I stumbled across this style—the “front step card fold.” I thought it was really fun, and loved that the card could stand on its own and be displayed. So, although the style wasn’t right for the project I was working on at the time, I kept this idea in my back pocket for later use.
Fast forward a little bit. When I had the idea to make a snow globe card, I just knew that this style would work perfectly!

The nice thing about this design is that it folds down flat so that you can put it in a standard A7 envelope. And when the recipient opens it up, they have a sweet little display piece that they can show off!
This card is relatively straightforward to put together, but if you are struggling with the assembly process, be sure to check out my short assembly video on Instagram. I used a piece of Dura-Lar Film (although it’s hard to see in the pictures) for the “glass” part of the globe, but if you don’t have any on hand, you could just leave that area empty and attach the little snowflakes to the inside of the globe “frame.”
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other Christmas freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy making this wintery snow globe card! I hope you have as much fun putting it together as I did. Be sure to share your festive results with me on Instagram!
