It’s dreary and chilly here today. I thought this Cricut Snowman Card would cheer you up! The State Highway is pretreating the roads. I guess I should watch the weather. They must be calling for some frozen stuff today or tomorrow.
I don’t mind snow and ice. When the weather is nasty, my boss doesn’t make me work. I have tons of craft supplies to keep me busy too!
The hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Years is over, but I still enjoy making winter cards with snowmen, penguins, and snowflakes.
OK onto the Snowman Card. Do you make winter Cards? This Cricut Snowman Card is so cute and SO EASY! You could make this handmade card for Christmas or send this card as a icy day pick-me-up or to celebrate a winter birthday.
If you are new to card making or are learning how to use the Cricut, I have a video that will help you. It shows you step by step how to cut the layered Cricut snowman and snowflakes on the Cricut and how to assemble the card from start to finish.
The supply list and measurements are below so that you can gather them and follow along with video. This was my first time making a tutorial video for YouTube. I don’t think it’s too bad for my first try. I hope to do more video tutorials in 2015.
