Snowman Christmas cards are pretty popular, even for people who aren’t in areas that get snow. They are a fun and cheerful symbol of the season and are great cards to send to “kids” of all ages!  To make this card I used the Rubbernecker Slimline Squares Frame, Snowman, Evergreen Trees, Cardinals, Deckle Hills, Tiny Leaves, Globe Tree (star) and Splatter Background.

The Slimline Card Base and Snow Layers

  • Cut a 7.00″ x 8.50 white card base and sore down the center.
  • Use red cardstock to cut a 3.25″ x 8.25″ layer and attach to the card base using ATG adhesive. 
  • Cut the slimline layer using light blue cardstock. 
  • Apply white pigment ink to the splatter background stamp, stamp the top half of the slimline and emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Attach the blue snowy slimline layer to the red card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the deckle hill layers.
  • Use the slimline die to cut the borders of the deckle hills snow layers.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the snow layers and attach to them then to the slimline layer.

The Snowman and Evergreen Tree

  • Cut the Snowman body using white cardstock and attach them together using glossy accents..
  • Cut the accessory pieces using red, black, brown and orange cardstock.
  • Attach the hat sections together using glossy accents and attach to the head using glossy accents.
  • Attach the facial features and scarf to the snowman using glossy accents.
  • Embellish the snowman hat with two tiny leaves and a red 1/8″ punched circle.
  • Cut a small evergreen tree and attach the 1/8″ red circles and a star to the tree using glossy accents. Note:  I always use my reverse tweezers to pick up small pieces like the holly leaves and punched circles.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the embellished tree and attach it to the snowman body.
  • Attach the brown twig arms to the snowman body and tree using glossy accents.

Assemble the Scene

  • Use green cardstock to cut a set of the evergreen trees.
  • Stamp the trees using the splatter background and white pigment ink.
  • Sprinkle the trees with white embossing powder and heat with the heat gun.
  • Use red cardstock to cut the cardinals and color their beaks with a black marker
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the three trees, tuck them in behind the top snow layer and attach to the scene base.
  • Tuck the snowman in behind the front snow layer and attach it using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the cardinals and attach them to the scene base.

There are so many fun themes to choose from when you are thinking about your own Christmas – or holiday – cards. Not everyone celebrates Christmas from a perspective of faith and motifs like all of my snowman Christmas cards are nice ways to make a nod to the season for everyone. What kinds of cards are YOU making this year? I’d love to hear!
