  • Stamp snowglobe on white cardstock, stamp a second time and cut out the center for a mask.
  • Place mask over snowglobe and stamp "Outpost" in the snowglobe. 
  • Leave the mask in place and create a sunset using desired colors of Distress Ink.
  • Apply a layer of Rock Candy to the glass globe part of the image and let dry.
  • Stamp leaves using Archival Ink and cut out.  Apply a layer of Rock Candy to each leaf.
  • Stamp sentiment & leaves, die-cut with label die.  Ink the edges and apply Glossy Accents on each leaf.
  • Stamp ticking on a tag using Archival Ink.  Ink the edges using Tea Dye Distress Ink & IBT.
  • Tear a piece of blue scrap cardstock and adhere it to the bottom of the tag.  Ink the edges.
  • Mount the sentiment, globe & leaves. 
  • Add ribbon to the hole.
