There’s just something so cute about these fellows and I just love thinking of snowman card ideas so I can use them on multiple projects. THIS snowman card cracks me and everyone I’ve show it to up because those snowballs REALLY look like they are flying through the air! Is there anything funnier than snowmen having a snowball fight?
The Card Base and Snow Layers
- Cut an A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
- Use blue cardstock to cut a 5.50″ x 4.25″ layer for the sky background.
- Cut two 5.50″ mountain layers using white cardstock.
- Prepare the blue layer with an embossing magic bag to reduce static cling.
- Stamp the blue background layer using the Splatter Background and white pigment ink, sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the blue layer and attach it to the card base.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the lower back portion of the snow layers and attach them to the card base. Note: I leave the top portion of the snow layers free of adhesive so I can tuck trees and evergreen foliage in behind them.
The Trees and Foliage
- Use green cardstock the evergreen tree and foliage.
- Stamp the evergreen tree with the Splatter Background using white pigment ink, sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat.
- Cut the birch trees using white cardstock .
- Apply touches of grey ink to the notches on the trees using a mini applicator.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of the evergreen tree and strips of rolled up double stick tape to the back of the birch trees, tuck them in behind the snow layer and attach to the card base.
The Snowmen and Snow Balls
- Cut the snowmen and accessories using red, white, blue, orange, brown and black cardstock.
- Assemble the pieces and attach them together using glossy accents. Note: I place the small pieces like the nose, eyes, mouth and buttons on my molding pad because it makes them easier to pick up with my tweezers.
- Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the snowmen and attach them to the snow layers.
- Cut several of the little hat pom-poms to use as snowballs for the snowball fight.
- Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the snowballs and attach them to the snowmen hands and create a pile of snowballs at their feet.
- Apply two layers of mounting tape pieces to the back of two snowballs and attach them to the sky area to appear as though they are flying in the air. Check out the picture above for a closeup view of the flying snowballs.
- Use red cardstock to cut a cardinal, color its beak with a black marker and attach it to the sky area using a piece of mounting tape.
- Finish the card by tucking a few sprigs of evergreen in behind the snow layers and attaching using glossy accents.
What do you think? Is this one of my top snowman card ideas thanks to their frosty frolic? I love that you can make a bunch of these characters in a big assembly session and save them for all the snowman card ideas you’ve been saving. Let me know what YOU think and what you’ve done with these frozen friends!
I have so much fun coming up with snowman card ideas.
