Snow Globe With Santa & Snowman Card

I've wanted to make a scene inside my snow globe stamp that included Santa and his sleigh flying across the moon for some time and I finally got round to making it happen.  I stamped the globe on white CS first, added a circle as a mask for the moon and sponged blue and purple inks inside the globe.  I masked off the Santa and sleigh stamp so that I only had 1 reindeer in my stamped image.  I stamped the small snowman, coloured him in, cut him out and glued him inside the globe.  I stamped the globe base on a piece of Crumb Cake CS, cut it out, sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink and popped it up.  I added some punched silver glitter stars and some glitter jewels to the bottom of the globe.  The snow globe is popped up on the card.  I've added a stamped sentiment, punched photo corners and stars, a CS strip and some ribbon to finish off the front.

I've added an oval sentiment piece inside with some more punched silver glitter stars and I stamped snowflakes on the envelope flap.
