Snowman Season Card

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!

Blue Cardstock

First, start by creating a 5” x 7” card base from blue cardstock using a paper trimmer to cut it to size.  Get a crisp fold for the card by scoring it using a scoring board.

Circle Dies

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.

Snowman Cutout

Here is what you will have at this point.  Lay it aside.

Patterned Paper

Place Dies

Patterned Circle

Now, lay the circle on your cutting plate again and lay a piece of patterned paper (North Pole by Doodlebug) and run it through the die cut machine to cut the three circles.

Merry Christmas Circles

 

Merry Christmas Snowman

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.

Pencil Marks

Turn the piece over and use a pencil to draw in where the eyes of the snowman should be placed.

Buttons

Punch the holes using a hole punch and place black brads into the holes.

Glue

Punch 5 small circles using a small hole punch from black cardstock and adhere them for the mouth of the snowman using a Quickie Glue Pen by Sakura.

Nose

Cut an elongated triangle from a piece of orange cardstock for the carrot nose and attach it to his face using the pen.

Snowman

Punch 3 more small circles from the black cardstock and glue them to the second circle to represent the buttons on the snowman.

Strip

 

Cut

Bend

 

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.

Hat

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.

Red Strip

Glue Hat

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.

Stamp the holly onto the red using the Christmas Greetings by Inkadinkado stamps and a black ink pad and acrylic block.   Also, stamp the greeting onto the corner of the card.

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!
