Good Morning! Here’s a cute little snowman Christmas Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season photopolymer stamp set. I also used the Let It Snow Speciality Designer Paper to create a layered look. This is is such a happy color combination, sure to make Christmas merry! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. Here’s the card:
I started building the background by cutting the Let It Snow DSP pieces. I matted the large panel on Basic Black and the smaller layering pieces on Real Red. I adhered it all together with liquid glue.
I then stamped the snowman from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Panel of Whisper White. I colored it with Real Red, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I then cut it out with the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes dies. I added some Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and heat set it. It is so amazing to watch it puff up!! Be careful though as it will start to turn brown if heated too much.
I used the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles dies to cut a Real Red mat and adhered it to the back of the circle. I created the label by stamping the Christmas Cheer sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a strip of Real Red and trimmed the end. I adhered this to the layered background with liquid glue and then tied the curly ribbon around it and made a bow. I adhered the Snowman Circle to the background with dimensionals and used dimensionals to attach it all to a Real Red card base.
On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set in Real Red ink on a panel of Whisper White. I added some snowflakes in Coastal Cabana ink and added a strip of the little snowmen paper to the bottom. I adhered it to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the card.
Snowmen are great themes for Christmas cards and for Winter cards afterwards. The snowmen in the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season stamp set are happy and whimsical and the Let It Snow Specialty Designer paper is a winner too! Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
