Today’s die cut snowman card has lots of adorable details but is easy to make and will give everyone the frosty grins!
Today we have this absolutely adorable die cut snowman card from Dawn and we have to say that we just smile from ear to ear every time we look at it. While it’s clearly a perfect Christmas card, we can also see this card being used with a different sentiment in a different color story to be used as a card to just plain cheer someone up. Dawn says “This snowmen stamp set makes me smile every time I look at them. They represent what a snowman is all about!” and this card is just totally infused with that cheer.
Let’s get Dawn’s steps in her own words so we can learn her fabulous little tips and tricks.
The first thing I did was stamp out all of my images from Rubbernecker’s Cute Snowman Set and colored them. These are the Copic color combinations I used:
- White – C5 C3 C1 C00 Colorless Blender
- Orange – B01 YR07 YR04 Y35
- Red – B63 R29 R27 R35 R24
- Black – 100
When I was done coloring, I used the coordinating Cute Snowman Die set to cut them out. PRO TIP: I use Washi tape or any low tack tape to hold the dies in position to cut correctly.
Now I made my card background.
- I chose a piece of paper from the Snowflake Fun Slimline Paper Pad, a coordinating pattern from the Winter Animals 6 X 6 Paper Pad and selected a coordinating green.
- I used the Window with Stitch die to cut the green card stock and saved two of the rectangles.
- On one of the green rectangles stamp I stamped a sentiment from the Merry Christmas Large/Small set.
- Now using the same die I cut out the red patterned paper from the Snowflake Fun Slimline paper Pad, saving the extra rectangles for a future project and taking the frame for this card.
- Using the same die one more time, I cut my piece from the Winter Animals 6 X 6 Paper Pad and put aside two rectangles, saving the rest for a future project.
- Using the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch die, I chose the one slightly than the snowflake frame and cut out a piece of the same green.
- Then I chose a larger die from the same set and cut a piece of red card stock.
- Now adhered them all together as shown
- PRO TIP: Save all these little rectangles and make more cards with them, using other pieces from the Paper Pads or your stash for the frames. This is a great card to use up all those parts and pieces!
- Using the Winter Village Die, I cut out the sweet little evergreen trees from white card stock.
I used foam tape to adhere my snowmen to give them dimension and shadows.
Last, I added my little trees to the sentiment block with little dabs of liquid glue.
I popped my background onto a white card base and it was ready to go!
Rubbernecker back – seriously, is this not one of the sweetest cards? And we LOVE Dawn’s idea of using all the different patterned rectangles to mix and match on other cards. What a great way to make lots of extra cards from one project!

We really adore the little details Dawn added to this die cut snowman card and especially love how it is such an adaptable card for any time when it might be chilly enough to share this kind of cheer!
