I decided to change things up a little bit on this super cute snowman card by making all the snowman parts – except for the nose – out of felt! I surrounded him with evergreen trees on pretty blue tag background, cheerful cardinals and falling snow. If I had it to do over again I would double layer the white parts to create a more pure white body.
- Cut the snowman parts out using white, black, red felt and orange cardstock.
- Use Crafter’s Pick glue to attach the pieces together and allow to dry.
- Embellish the snowman with tiny holly leaves and berries on the hat and scarf.
Create the Scene
- Cut a snow layer using white cardstock and a tag base using blue cardstock.
- Use the tag die to cut the snow layer to create a perfect match for the blue tag base.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the snow layer and attach it to the blue tag.
- Attach strips of mounting tape to the back of the trees and attach them to the tag base.
- Tuck the snowman in behind the snow layer and attach him to the trees using pieces of mounting tape.
- Cut three cardinals using red cardstock, color the beaks with a black marker and attach to the scene using pieces of mounting tape.
- Create falling snow by applying dots of white Nuvo Crystal Drops on the tag base, trees and a few dots on the snowman hat and scarf.
The Card Base
I originally planned on using this snowman as a Christmas tag but I liked it so much I decided to put it on a red and white card base to use as a Christmas card.
- Use red cardstock to cut the X stitch layer and attach it to the white card base using strips of mounting tape.
- Cut the greenery branches using white cardstock.
- Apply Crafter’s Pick glue to the branches, sprinkle with clear glitter and allow them to dry.
- Arrange the branches on the top left corner and attach using glossy accents.
- Finish by tying a red multi loop bow and attaching it to the greenery arrangement using glue dots. Note: Check out my multi loop bow video tutorial if you would like to see how I made my bow.
