Yuletide Design No. 3

This card was inspired by a Christmas decoration I had, well still have, it's put away in a box somewhere for Kieran in a few years, when I was kid. Before I had it, It was my Dad's. It's a pretty simple snow globe with just Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer in it. It has a bright red base. But it just feels amazing. It's really heavy, made with thick glass not plastic and has lots of really fine grained snow in it. I tried to recreate it on this card. Also, another first for me. This time, the first I've used clear cardstock. I had to get special ink to stamp on it, but the snow on it turned out nicely! The inside says "Have a Cracking Christmas".
Stamps: A Muse Rudy, snow day background, and let it snow, Elzybells cracking Christmas
Ink: Memento rich cocoa, StazOn opaque cotton white, and VersaFine vintage sepia
