Easy to Make Snowman Gift Card


Are you ALL ready for Christmas?! I am definitely NOT, eek... and it's less than a week away!!!😨

If you have been following me on YouTube, you will know that I am doing a Holiday Card Series. Today's card will be the last one for the series. I had planned on making a few more but because I won't have time for video editing I have decided to take a break from the craft room and catch up on everything else.

Well let's get to today super cute card Snowman Gift Card. 
For this card I wanted to create a card using minimal supplies or at least supplies most of you would already have. Most of this card was done with circle dies. I did use a gift card groove die to hold the gift card in place, but you can easily replicate this without having one. You can either just use a couple foam squares to pinch the gift card in place (hidden underneath the gloves) or use a small circle die on each side and do some partial cutting to the width of a gift card.

To begin, I cut out the snowman's head and body using some large circle dies.
The nose was just a hand cut triangle popped up with foam. For his mouth I used very tiny drops of Night Sky Nuvo crystal drops and added a pink hole punched circle for the cheek. His eyes were also hole punched circles with glossy accents added to the black card stock.

For the mitts, I used 2 circle dies and then cut thumbs from the ends of a channel slider and glued them behind the circles.  As you can see I added a few buttons to the snowman's belly (the top two are drawn in as I didn't want them to interfere with the gift card) and for the bottom one I just added a sequin. To finish the snowman I wrapped the ribbon around the base of his head and glued the ends in place underneath the foam popped up head.

For fun I added some Sea Breeze Jewel drops all around the background.

The stamped sentiments come from Timholtz Carzy Birds Think/Talk set.

Sending You Strength and HUGS Sympathy Card - Die Impression Cut Out


Hello Friends,

I'm back today to share with you a sympathy card I made for my Sisters' friend, who recently lost her mother. Usually I like to make happy cards, so I find sympathy cards challenging to make. I wanted to make it clean and simple card and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I think I will have to make a few more like it to have on hand.

Sending You Strength and HUGS Sympathy Card - Die Impression Cut Out

To create the impression on the heart I taped the staked heart dies together and sandwiched the cardstock between the dies and an embossing pad. Doing this just presses the dies into the paper without cutting them leaving this beautiful impression on the cardstock. The I removed the center heart dies leaving only the large die ran that as I normally would to create a die cut.

For the Hugs die, I cut out 3 layers stacked and glued them together. I then used my versamark ink pad and added two layers of silver embossing powder and heat set them. The sentiment strip was created by combining a couple of sentiments from the Essential Sentiment Stamp Set. Not pictured here but the inside was finished with the "with sympathy" stamp.

Hope you were inspired by this Sending You Strength and HUGS Sympathy Card.
Stay tuned for another card from my Holiday Card series coming soon!
