Season’s Greetings Snowman Card

Do you like the snow?  How about greeting the change of season?  Create this adorable snowman card to share your excitement for the holiday season and the snow!

1

Begin by creating a 5” x 7” card base from cardstock using a paper trimmer and scoring board to get a crisp, clean cut and fold.  This card base was created using kraft cardstock.  Cut a 4 ¾” x 6” piece of patterned paper (the Whiteout Collection by Bo Bunny is shown for this card) and attach it to the base using a tape runner.  Lay this part aside.

2

Cut 3 circles using a circle cutter and glass mat.  The largest circle is 2 ¾” in diameter, the next one is 2” and the top one is 1 ½”.

3

Add a little color to the circles to make them stand out from the background by inking around the edges with an ink pad (a brown ink pad was chosen for this card to tie in the brown hues of the papers.

4

Now, create the background by cutting a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of white cardstock.  Cover the bottom part of the cardstock with an extra piece of paper so that the bottom does not get inked.  Punch several snowflakes with a snowflake punch and place them on the cardstock with repositionable adhesive.

5

Ink the paper using an ink tool and ink pad.  For this winter looking sky the colors were layered on first with a blue and then with a dark brown ink.  Be careful that the snowflakes do not get pulled up with the ink tool.

6

Lift off the punched snowflakes.   This is the first layer for the background.  Adhere it to the card base with the tape runner.

7

Punch several more snowflakes and arrange them on the background.  For this, don’t cover the snowflakes that were inked so that it adds another layer to the look of the card.  You can, also, pop them out using a 3-d adhesive.

8

Cut a carrot nose and twig arms from cardstock using a pair of scissors.  Attach the snowman to the card and place his arms so that they are raised towards the sky.  Draw a smile on with a marker and attach the nose so that he is looking upwards.

Stamp the greeting and die cut it using your favorite die and a die cut machine.

Winter is the time for sharing.  Send the joy of the season, whether it be the holidays or winter, to your friends and family.  It will surely get them in the season’s spirit, too.
