Teeny Weeny Christmas

This set is the first in a new series called "Teeny Weeny Scenery".  A couple of months ago I was trying to create a winter scenery to fit the size of my medium cling set which measures about 2-1/2" x 3-1/2".  It doesn't seem very large, but it was very difficult to fill in that much scenery.  After awhile I scrapped the idea, but it kept coming back to me.  Maybe if I tried doing it on a smaller scale...

I tried to add in as many layers as I could to give this card dimension.  I used foam dots to pop up the snow, the trees and the snowman.  On the pink frame, I popped up the holly.  To make the window for the card, I sandwiched some glitter between 2 pieces of acetate (sealed with double stick tape) and taped behind the open window to look like snow:

Mount the frame onto the scenery with more pop dots.  To make the card base, I cut a 3-3/4" x 7-1/2" piece of card stock (scored at 1-1/2" and 3-3/4").  Glue the bottom half of the scenery to the bottom half of the card cover (up to the fold line).  On the inside of the card, stamp a greeting and pop up another image to hold the easel.

Here's another version of the card:

Keeping the window round makes it look more like a snow globe:
