Snowman Side Step Card by Jenny

Hi! It's Jenny from Jen's Crafty Place here to make a fast and most importantly adorable snowman card!

I used the snowman from Snow Fun Layout to make this side step card. Let's get started!

Cut out the snowman from the Snow Fun Layout set  at the size it opens up in your program. It is a little over 5 inches assembled. Use any colors you would like for your little man. I used purples for his scarf and hat. My papers are all from Recollections. (To add more interest use patterned papers!) Next, cut 4 snowflakes from the same file. Cut one a bit larger than the others for the message.

For the side step card: I used a Sizzix die but you can also use a silhouette design or even free hand one. Use paper that coordinates with your snowman's hat and scarf.

After you have all your pieces cut it is time to ink the edges. This is not mandatory but it does add more depth to the card. I used Dew Drop inks and a sponge dauber to ink around the edges of my pieces for my snowman. I used some light pink on his cheeks to make him blush. You can also do the snowflakes if you would like. Just be careful the sponging may bend the fragile cuts.

Now time to assemble the snowman. If you aren't mailing the card you could use dimensional squares to pop out his features. I needed my card to be flat so I just used a tape runner. I also added some Wink of Stella to my snow bank behind my little fella and the snowflakes. You can't see in the pictures very well but they are really sparkly!

I stamped a "hello friend" saying in a 3/4 inch circle punch, inked the edges blue and added a little bling" to make it shine! I popped that in the center of the large snowflake and attached it behind the snowman's head. You can stamp any greeting to customize your card. (Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Think Snow to name a few.) I even added some "bling" to the centers of my snowflakes. You can add as much or as little "bling" as you like. Make it your own creation by adding more embellishments. Puffy paint for snow is fun. How about adding some Stickles to the snowflakes?

That's it! See, I told you it was FAST!
