This snowman idea caught my attention on Pinterest this week as I was browsing :). Every snowman I’ve ever seen has been stacked upright before, so the idea of a snowman looking up is just so cute! What a fun idea for Christmas gift tags or any winter time gift. I know we have three birthdays in our family, two are right before Christmas and one soon after, so this is a fun and different gift tag to make the outside of the gift special too!
I stamped and embossed my own background onto the tag, then cut my snowman body out at 2″, 1.75″, and 1.5″ circles. The carrot nose, branch arms and scarf were cut freehand and the tiny pieces were glued using the Tombow Glue Pen. Join me in the video for complete instructions.
I love pine trees, so I decided to incorporate them into a Christmas card for this year. To make my trees more “Christmas-y”, I used Stampendous Winter Wonderland embossing powder. It’s mostly white with silver flecks in it. Believe it or not, I got the beautiful ribbon at the Dollar Tree! It’s very thin, and almost papery, but it is very beautiful and works very well for cards. You can follow along below with the video for all the details. I have just barely had my voice come back, so sorry in advance for the raspy voice 🙂
P.S.: The tree stamps I used are:
Before The Snow by Penny Black
Christmas Evergreen by Inkadinkado
This card is super simple and fast to make! I used a 3″ x 4″ red piece of cardstock, then cut a piece of Christmas patterned paper slightly smaller to mat onto the red. Then used ribbon, a Christmas greeting stamp with red ink and adhesive pearls to finish this card.
By this time of December, you need very easy and quick cards for Christmas. This one is not only quick, but will help use up your scraps of paper!
I used 3 different scraps of green paper and one of brown to make this tree. It is easily decorated with buttons, stickles or peel-off stickers. Your kids will even get a kick out of helping you make this easy card!
