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 NestedWinter Snowmen, Upper Case Alphabet, Lower Case Alphabet, Stitched Hills and  Greenery #1.

Learn how to make this cute handmade snowman card using die cuts from Rubbernecker!

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.
