Teacup Snowman

Hi, Lois here today with another card made using one of the brand-new Christmas dies.  These are just Part 1 of the Christmas Release.  There are more to come in a short while.  Be sure to check out the store while these dies are on sale at 25% off.

The die I chose for today is a cute one called Teacup Snowman.  I thought I would make a fun fold card called the Joy Fold Card.

To start my card, I cut all the cardstock:

Two pieces of red - 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" and 3" x 8"
Two pieces of patterned paper - 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
One piece of patterned paper - 2 3/4" x 4"
One piece of patterned paper - 4" x 5 1/4"
White cardstock for die cutting

I constructed my card first by scoring the two red pieces of cardstock -- the larger one at 5 1/2" and the smaller one in half at 4".

I then adhered the patterned paper on both pieces . . . 

. . . and glued the smaller piece to the inside panel.

I opened the small panel and stamped a sentiment on the inside.

I set my card aside and cut the Snowman Teacup die from white cardstock.

Using Copic marrkers, a small black pen, and a white gel marker, I colored and constructed my snowman . . . 

. . . adhering him to the front panel.

A Joy Fold card usually requires something on the front to hold the small panel closed.  So I pulled out an old CottageCutz holly die and made a closure for the front, adhering it with large foam circles.

Here again is my completed card.  You can see how the corner tucks in behind the holly sprig.
