Today’s handmade snowman slimline card is just so full of cheer and easier to make than it looks!
This absolutely adorable handmade snowman slimline card is a perfect project for when you want to send something non-denominational but still want to add that little hint of Christmas cheer. You can’t get much more wintry than snowmen and the addition of just the word “Merry” brings everything together so beautifully.
Lisa created this for us and as usual, she’s sharing all her tips and tricks so all you need to do is gather the supplies and follow along. Let’s get started!
Lisa stamped the images from our Cute Snowmen stamp set and cut them out with our coordinating die.
She then used her Copics to color them in and to add dimensional details.
While she had her machine out, she also cut a piece of white card stock with our Slimline Scallop OPC die; cut some white glitter card stock with our Slimline Hills die, our Snowflake Cookie die and the script portion of our Merry Word with Shadow die; and cut some green card stock with our Pine Tree Forest die and the shadow portion of the Merry die cut.
Lisa then trimmed a piece of white card stock to 1/8″ smaller than her die cut slimline frame on all sides. She used our Clouds Stencil and with Serene Color Fuse Ink from Set #8, created some cloud layers over this panel.
Lisa used a wet paintbrush and some watercolors to add some darker blue and white splatters over the panel for textural interest.
When this panel was completely dry, Lisa adhered it to a green piece of card stock cut to 3 1/8″ x 8 1/8″ and then adhered her slimline frame die cut with some thicker dimensional adhesive over the clouds.
Lisa took her die cut snowy hills, trimmed them to fit inside each of the windows and adhered them with some thinner dimensional adhesive to allow a little depth to show between the hills and the frame.
Lisa trimmed some pine trees from the die cut and added a few to each window with more foam tape to continue to build up her scene.
Next Lisa added her stinkin’ cute snowmen to her scene with even thicker dimensional adhesive to add even more depth. She decorated her scene with the snowflake from the Snowflake Cookie die cut and popped a few sequins on for a little light reflection.
Last, she layered her word pieces together with liquid adhesive and popped it onto her card.
Here are peeks at either end so you can really see that dimension and how they almost pop right off the card!
Do snowmen cards get any cuter than this?
We think this handmade snowman slimline card is just about perfect for the holidays. And here’s a little bonus – swap out the sentiment and you’ve got an excellent card for all winter long!
