Good Monday morning. I am so excited to be on vacation this week. I have plans to play in my craft room and to start making non Christmas projects. Christmas is my favorite card making season but I must say I am looking forward to making some spring flower projects. It will be a relief for my eyes to go from bright red and green to soft spring colors. My project today is another fast, clean and simple card that can be used for any special occasion during the winter…birthday, thank you, get well!
I love making snowman cards with detailed backgrounds. But I really love the simplicity the Snowflake Cutout set creates on the white card base with the red behind it. The Snowman Set has so many fun parts and pieces but I especially love the top hat and big carrot nose.
I placed the three snowflake dies face down over the cardstock while laying on the magnetic platform and ran through my Big Shot. I love that the magnetic platform holds the dies perfectly in place while cutting. I placed a piece of red cardstock inside the card to show through the openings of the snowflakes.
I cut out the different pieces of cardstock for the snowman and assembled. I could have used the die cut scarf but I always like to use fabric ribbon for the scarf. I cut and frayed the ends of the scarf and attached to the snowman with glue dots. I added a festive snow covered pine to the neck and hat for the finishing touch. I attached the snowman to the card base with mounting tape at the top and center and but used glue dots at the bottom so it would be flat to the base.
Thank you for coming by today and I hope your holiday preparations are going well.
Card size: 5.50” x 4.25”
