Such a Beautiful card, Thank you for both videos. I love this card. Making want to go and use my Imagine!! Thank you for sharing. I am now a follwer of your blog.

Congratulations on your new I-rock! I'll be emailing you!

I hope that you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours was quiet and included watching the Macy’s Parade. There is something about seeing that “Jolly old elf” that officially starts my Christmas preparations! And that I have done! I have feverishly been making Christmas cards since noon on Thursday. And my Imagine makes it so easy!

I was looking through Paper Crafts’ Holiday Cards Magazine, Vol. 5 for card ideas and I came across the cutest little snowman card, “Silly Snowman” by Heidi V. Laar. Needless to say, I had to make it…right then. And, of course, I had to use what I had in my house because it was too late and too dark to go anywhere.

He is made entirely on the Imagine, using the built in shapes! Here’s how:

Ingredients:
  • Imagine
  • White cardstock
  • 4” piece of twine
  • 4” piece of brightly colored ribbon
  • Ink or Copic Markers

Design:

  1. Cut all shapes.
  2. Trim one (1) point from the star. This will be used as your nose.
  3. Score two (2) of the 3” circles 1/2” from cut edge.

  1. On one of the above circles, trim 1/2” directly opposite to the score.
  2. Glue the two scored circles together above the score, on the wedge.
  3. Ink all edges of other 3 circles.
  4. Glue last 3” circle to the complete circle on the card base (the trimmed circle is the back).
  5. Pop-dot the 2.5” circle to the 3” circle. Do not center.

  6. Place a small amount of glue in the center of the 2.5” Circle. Lay the twine across the center.
  7. Glue the nose to the smallest circle. Add black dots for eyes and a mouth.
  8. Pop dot and add to your circle stack.
  9. Finish with a flat bow.

Thank you, Heidi for a wonderful design! And thank you for joining me to Imagine how much more you can do! Until next time…

  4. I loved yr snowman card & made it,but was wondering why the 1/2 in. cut on the bottom circle,feels like Im missing something??? I first thought the folds were to make a card type to put a message,between the 2 folded circles,but then the 1/2 cut off seemed odd?? can u tell me if I did something wrong. jeanmheming@aol.com
