Who doesn’t love building a cute snowman or receiving a fun snowman card? This card is a fun way to use your basic shaped dies to create an inlaid circle which forms the snowman and the front of the card. Now, go get your circle dies from Create for Less and let’s begin!
Lay the graduated sized circles (Large Standard Circles by Spellbinders) in a row on a piece of white cardstock that has been cut to 4 ¾” x 6 ¾”. Lay these on top of the cutting plate to your die cut machine and run it through the machine.
Here is what you will have at this point. Lay it aside.
Lay the circles inside of the first piece that you cut making sure to work from the back of the piece. Now, adhere the circles inside of the base using tape. Mailing tape works well for this because of its wider sized strips.
Turn the piece over and use a pencil to draw in where the eyes of the snowman should be placed.
Cut an elongated triangle from a piece of orange cardstock for the carrot nose and attach it to his face using the pen.
Punch 3 more small circles from the black cardstock and glue them to the second circle to represent the buttons on the snowman.
From a red piece of cardstock that has been cut to measure ½” x 2” trim one end of it into a pennant shape and then give it a slight fold. Finish of the scarf by rounding the opposite end using a corner rounder. Attach it to the neck of the snowman using a tape runner.
Now create the top hat by cutting a 1 ¼” x 1 ¼”” piece of black cardstock and round the top corners of it. Cut a second piece of cardstock that measures ¾” x 1 ¼”” and round the corners of it, too. Attach the ¾” x 1 ¼” piece to the other piece by slightly overlapping the edges and attaching them together using the tape runner.
Cut a piece of red cardstock that measures ¼” x 1 ¼” and place it over the seam of the two black pieces attaching it with the tape runner.
Adhere the top hat onto the snowman. It’s okay to have it go above the card edge. It just adds more fun to it.
Have some fun this winter season and start the snowball rolling into this cute snowman card. Share it with everyone you know and pass along the fun. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean it can’t be fun, too!
