Punchy Snowman!

Happy Sunday! Today I wanted to share a fun snowman card I designed using punches!
This super easy snowman is easy to make and would be a great project to make with kids!

The punchy snowman is created using the 1 1/4" and 1 3/4" punches from Stampin' Up! (Any circle punches will do though.) I punched four of each shape and folded each in half. Then I adhered the circles together using the folded sides. (I can show pictures of this later if this is unclear.)

The eyes and mouth are created punching the tiny holes using a Cropadile. (I used the larger holes for the eyes and the smaller for the mouth.)
To make the snowman seem like it is together, I added the "ribbon" scarf. I used some liquid applique snow in the background of the scene and finished the card by adding some Cuttlebug swirl snow drifts!


Here is the snowman at a different angle. Isn't he cute? Even better...he is EASY to make!

Materials used: cardstock-bayau blue, soft sky, black, white, only orange, red (Stampin' Up!); ribbon (SU!); circle punches (Stampin' Up!); white eyelets (Paper Studio); Cropadile; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); Swirl Embossing folder (Provocraft); Liquid Applique (Marvy); dimensionals (SU!).


YES! You can mail him in a standard envelope -- the circles fold down so he can be mailed flat! SCORE!

Thanks for stopping by!
