Snowman Magic ~ Card 4 ~ Step it up!


The fourth card in the Snowman Magic Series uses our same fun little snowman and a snow woman! 

He is so dashing and debonair with this top hat and bow tie, while she is wrapped in a the warmth of her brightly colored hat and scarf. 

"I love you snow much" as one hands their heart to the other with their snowy little twig arms. 

This card portrays that magical story to the receiver. If nothing else it sends a very loving Holiday wish. 

It is "snow" cute! 
The card layout is a stepped up version that allows for a little pop up fun removed from the envelope. 
A very simple fun fold!

It is virtually the same layout as Card 3 only applying the framed scene rather than the frame & large greeting.

Cut & Score Card Pieces.

Emboss 1 Basic White Layer with the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder, or any snowflake embossing folder.
Blend just a small amount of the Tahitian Tide Ink with a blending brush to create a sky effect on the this layer.

Die cut the 2nd Basic White Layer with the large snowflake frame from the Snowman Magic Bundle.

Using dimensionals, attach the snowflake frame over the Basic White embossed layer. 

Stamp 2 snowman bodies and bodies and faces, a top hat and a bow tie using Black Memento Ink. Die cut these pieces.

Stamp a winter hat and a scarf in Tahitian Tide Ink. Die cut these pieces.

Die cut 2 trees and the heart in Tahitian Tide card stock.  

Die cut the arms for the snowmen in Basic Black cardstock.

Assemble the snowmen. 

Attach the 2 die cut trees to the front of the snowflake framed layer. 

Using dimensionals, attach the snowmen, so that the hands almost meet. 

Attach the tiny heart to the hand of one of the snowmen using a glue dot. 

Card Construction:

Using the score lines as a guide from the largest section of Tahitian Tide cardstock into a cube on one end. Affix using glue or tear n tape on the 1/2 flap section.
Attach the coordinating layers of designer paper. 
One of the small layers goes on the inside of the cube section of the card.

Using the smaller section of Tahitian Tide cardstock - fold on the score lines, attach a piece of tear n tape to the back of the 1/2 flap section. 

Flatten the card base ( the larger layer ) and attach the smaller layer lined up to the right side of the card. 

Attach the bottom of this layer to the cube section of the card base using glue or tear n tape.

You will now have a popped up mechanism on the card front.

Attach the snowflake framed layer to the popped up section on the card base. 
*** This layer must line up to the far left of the cube section or it won't fit in a standard envelope.  The card in the picture above needed a larger envelope for mailing.  Pics below are the correct size for the standard card measurements we follow.

The above card photos show how the framed layer must meet up with the far left of the card base. 
The snowflake frame measurements is larger than the standard panel for this type of fold, however it still works.

Stamp the " I love you snow much " greeting and pop up with dimensionals on the top of the card front. 
Attach a few sequins & gems to add a little sparkle. 

I also added a string of Iridescent Trim to give a white snowy ground look. 

Lastly.. that Wink of Stella ( one of my most favorite products). Use it on the snowmen and some of the snowflakes of the frame. It adds such a beautiful touch.

Card Back:

Using the inside of the snowflake frame ( the piece you wanted to put in the garbage ) stamp a sentiment from the Snowman Magic stamp set. Attach it to the card back. Be sure to leave room for the sender to write on. 

I'm sure my instructions made this card harder than it actually is ~ this fold is really an easy fun fold to do.
 It makes this card "snow" much fun! 

I hope you enjoyed Card 3 in the Snowman Magic series.
