Snowglobes and Gumball Machines

When I saw this Snow Globe die in the A Muse holiday catalog I knew I had to have one, so many possibilities for cuteness!! This is my first card with it. I used stamps from Holiday Tags, and the Cloud dies to create my little winter scene, sentiment is from Mini Holiday Messages.  Papers I used were, Candy Cane Stripe, Twas, French Roast, Sky, Vanilla, and a tiny scrap of shimmer card stock for my snow. I love how this card turned out! It got me to thinking of other ways I could use this die...
 Like maybe a gumball machine!! :) It could also be a fish bowl, but I didn't have a fish stamp or die to try that idea out. I punched a bunch of 1/2 inch circles for my gumballs, the top was made by cutting off the top part of the globe stand and adding a 1/2 inch circle to the top. The other pieces I just free handed. Simple, but so cute! What do you think?

I hope that you are having a wonderfully delightful day! Thanks for stopping by.
