Isn’t this cute handmade snowman card just perfect for any warm winter wish? I just love how cute this little guy is and decided to keep things relatively simple to give him the chance to shine. Keep reading to learn how I added a clever no layer background! To make this I used the Rubbernecker Inside Scallop Nested, Winter Snowmen, Upper Case Alphabet, Lower Case Alphabet, Stitched Hills and Greenery #1.
Card Base and Scene Layer
- Cut the A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
- Use the Inside Scallop die to cut the scene layer.
- Mask off the edges of the scene layer using masking tape and use a large blender brush and blue ink to create the background.
- Remove the tape, apply mounting tape to the back of the scene layer and attach it to the card base.
- Cut the white snow layer using the Stitched Hill die and cut a second time using the Inside Scallop die to create matching sides and bottom of the scene layer.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of the snow layer and attach it to the scene layer.
Winter Fun Alpha
- Cut the upper and lower case alpha letters using yellow cardstock.
- Apply strips of rolled up double stick tape to the back of each letter.
- Line up the letters and attach them to the scene layer. Note: Attaching the rolled up tape takes a little time but I think having the letters popped up instead of flat to the surface makes it well worth the time.
The Snowman and Greenery
- Cut the snowmen and accessories using white, orange, yellow 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 mounting tape to the back of the snowman and attach him to the card base.
- Cut the greenery using green cardstock.
- Tuck the branches in behind the snow layer and attach using glossy accents.
The Snow Dots
You are probably going to think I’m crazy but whenever I use a an eyelet die I save the tiny white circles that are left to use when I want to create snow or flower centers. They are handy to have when I need them.
I lay a bunch of the circles on my molding pad, pick them up with my tweezers and attach them using glossy accents.
I find that in the winter months, it’s fun to send cheerful, winter-themed cards and this cute handmade snowman card is a quick fix for both your crafting itch and gives you something special to send!
Making a cute handmade snowman card is so much fun.
