This Cricut Snowman Card turned out soooo cute!! It was one of those cards that came together perfectly. I love snowmen, and I wanted to create something that was a little different from the traditional Christmas Colors. The mint green, hot pink, lime green, and orange worked perfectly.

Meet Your Hosts
They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!
I used the Cricut Explore, but you can also make this card with the Snow Folks Cricut Cartridge if you have the Personal Cricut or Cricut Expressions.
When I saw these sweet snowmen, I knew they were perfect for the card that I had in mind. I often get these great ideas stuck in my head, but can’t get it into a project the way that I envision it. I love the tree branch with ornaments, and they match the paper and snowmen.

Materials Needed For Snowman Card
- 6″ x 12″ White Cardstock for card base. I used canvas textured white cardstock by Bazzill, because it has a nice weight and makes a sturdy card.
- 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ of green cardstock for the background mat
- 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ of printed snowflake paper. Patterned papers are from Echo Park.
- 5 1/2 border with trees and houses, cut from patterned paper
- Cutting file for snowmen and branch for the Cricut Explore. You can find it at the end of the this post.
- Assorted colors of cardstock to cut out die cuts
- Assorted colors of Stickles
- Sparkly fake snow
- Scrapbook adhesive
- Glue pen for putting together die cut layers
- Dimensional tape or Pop Dots
- Thick craft glue for attaching fake snow
Instructions for Snowman Card
- Start with a white cardstock base measuring 6″ x 12″. Score it at 6″ on the long side, and fold it in half.
- Attach a green cardstock mat measuring 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″.
- Attach mint green snowflake paper.
- Attach border to the bottom of the card. This was a strip that I cut from a large 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper. I used scissors to trim it, so it wasn’t just a plain rectangle.
- Using the Cricut, cut out and assemble all of the die cut pieces. (Cut file is at the bottom of post.) If you don’t have the Cricut Explore, you can use the Snow Folks Cricut Cartridge.
- Attach tallest snowman to the center of the card.
- Attach other snowmen with Pop Dots, overlapping the taller snowman
- Place the tree branch and ornaments where you would like them. The stem will be too long, but you can trim it with scissors.
- Add Stickles at accent the ornaments and snowmen.
- Put craft glue on the areas where you want artificial snow, and sprinkle the snow on generously.
