I am getting ready for the craftiest season with a Snowman Greeting Card that can also serve as a gift card holder. This project is perfect for a Christmas card craft and kids can also have a lot of fun making unique snowman designs.
Time: 30-40 minutes
Skill Level: Beginner
YOU WILL NEED:
9″ x 12″ craft cuts Kunin Classicfelt in White, Orange, Red and Lagoon
Optional: Kunin Plush in Polar White (I used the Plush because I love the texture and dimension it adds to a simple project.)
Sizzix XL die for Red Background and White Circles
A2 sized greeting card in white or cream
Tulip Puff Paint in Black and Glitter Turquoise
Begin by die cutting or hand cutting your felt pieces. TIP: Die cutting machines are great and made projects go quickly, but this project can also be done by hand cuts.
- 1 Red background piece (approximately 2 ½” by 3 ½”)
- 3 White circles (one small, one medium and one slightly bigger than medium)
- 1 small triangle of Orange for carrot nose
- 2 small pieces in Lagoon for arms
Next, you will need to take the background piece (Red) and adhere it with tacky glue to the card. TIP: Remember to only adhere 3 sides of the rectangle to leave an opening to insert a gift card. I would suggest that you use double sided tape or foam dots to adhere the gift card to peek out of the gift card pocket.
Now you can adhere the white felt pieces with tacky glue, and then the orange carrot nose and lagoon-colored arms, also with tacky glue. Next, you can add puff paint for eyes and buttons on the belly of the snowman.
You can then add further embellishments to the red background. TIP: Leave the embellishments of the background for the very last part, if you do it sooner – you risk smudging the puff paint as you decorate the snowman.
