Snowman Magic, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! 2022 Fall Catalog

You guessed it. I did not put away my "Snowman Magic" bundle. It's still sitting on my worktable, so I thought I'd make another card using it. And I will probably be making a few more before Christmas too. I think most of our holiday cards this year will be done using this set. I just love this snowman.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Shaded Spruce card stock for the layer and a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White for the top layer and I set them aside.

I die cut the snowman from the "Snowman Magic" bundle. I also die cut the arms and the hat was cut using a scrap piece of Basic Black card stock. Then I stamped the scarf and die cut the scarf and another snowman, plus I put the face die on the first snowman and die cut that all at the same time. I like to cut a lot at one time.

I colored the snowman's arms using my Bronze Blends Pen. You can also use the Crumb Cake marker or Crumb Cake card stock to cut them out. Then I glued the ends to the second snowman I die cut. I took my Basic Black marker and colored in over the face area and then I glued the two snowmen pieces together.

The scarf was glued in place. When I die cut the face, I kept the nose piece. I colored it using my dark Pumpkin Pie Blends Pen. I glued it back in place.

A sliver of Daffodil Delight card stock was cut for the band of the hat and that was glued in place on the hat. Then the hat was glued on top of the snowman's head.  I made some black dots on the bottom ball of the snowman and it was done.

I die cut a 2-1/8" circle and took my Blending Brush and scrubbed on some Shaded Spruce ink. Then I cut a Shaded Spruce scalloped circle for the back layer. I taped those two layers together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set aside. 

A 2" x 4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Santa Express" 12" x 12" package was cut at taped to the bottom of the Basic White piece. I cut a 4" x 1/4" piece of Shaded Spruce card stock was cut for the strip.

Then I took the circle piece and set it on top of the card front to see where the words would go. The words are from the "Snowman Magic" set and were stamped using Shaded Spruce ink. Once the words were done I set the piece in place using Dimensionals. Then I set the circled in place. The snowman was also set in place using Dimensonals.

And for a final touch, I added a tiny crystal rhinestone to the snowflake under the word "magical" and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and once again I was able to use a scrap piece of DSP!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Christmas card,

Love that cute little snowman! I just used this exact same layout yesterday on a card when I was trying to use up some of my Specialty Sweet Shop paper. My card will be on my blog next week. I'm just about finished with Thanksgiving cards and ready to start playing with Christmas designs.
