Welcome to day one of our Hip Hip Hooray for winter series! This week I have lots of crafty tutorials to share (so does Tamar) and I thought I'd kick off with a snowman card project. You can whip these up in an hour or so and they're nice to have on hand for winter birthdays or alter the text to create fun 'just because' or 'thank you' cards.
Let's get started!
Supplies - Blank cards, a small paper doily (available at supermarkets/department stores), felt scraps, embroidery thread, needle, scissors, craft glue, cardstock scraps (for card title), black pen and some stamps or rubons/stickers to create the card title.
Step 1: Gather your supplies.
Step 2: Cut a small paper doily into quarters.
Step 3: Adhere a quarter of the doily into the lower right hand corner of the blank card front.
Step 4: Stamp (or use stickers/rubons) the card greetings onto a cardstock scrap. I've used a manilla tag to stamp my words onto.
Step 5: Cut the stamped greetings up into small word strips.
Step 6: Adhere a greeting onto the top left hand corner of the card front.
Step 7: Cut out two circles from felt for the stomach and head - the large one is about the size of a 20 cent piece. Embroider 3 little criss crosses onto the stomach and two eyes + mouth onto the head. Using a scrap of different coloured felt, fashion a small hat for the snowman.
Step 8: Adhere (craft glue) the stomach onto the paper doily. Draw in some arms with a black pen. Adhere the head and hat to complete your snowman.
Ta-da! You have yourself a little snowman card - or a few of them, if you've been productive.
