You know I love die cut machines. They are this crafty girl’s BFF. However, I decided that I needed a good challenge, so I took a look around my newly cleaned craft room (only took me about 6 months to clean it) and zeroed in on my paper punches. You know what I learned? You can make a fun snowman card to send to friends and family with just a few paper punches, scissors, paper and Glue Dots®!
Are ya diggin’ that cute stamp? Check out the whole “Oh Christmas Puns” set here.
I used three sizes of circle punches to create a snowman. Just punch them out, layer the circles and use Glue Dots to stick them to your card. Next, I hand cut a small hat and scarf from some paper scraps that I had and stuck them to my snowman using Micro Glue Dots.
You can create an entire wintery scene just using a few paper punches. Glue Dots Lines are terrific for sticking down a paper punched fence or other thin paper pieces. The Micro Glue Dots are perfect for sticking paper punched snowflakes to your card. That’s what I did! Just use whatever paper punches you have to design a scene for your card.
I was really nervous to show you my own drawing for the snowman’s face, but I think it turned out ok after all! Drawing the face yourself makes your snowman a one of a kind creation. Plus, if it really looks awful you can punch out another circle super quick…not that I’d know anything about that…LOL!
The rest of this card is created using a standard A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2″…also known as cutting a sheet of 8.5 x 11″ paper in half).
I cut paper into rectangles to make a frame-like background. Add your own special crafty touch to make it uniquely you.
Here are some punch tips and storage ideas!
