How to Make Snowman Thank You Cards

LEARN TO MAKE EASY THANK YOU SNOW MUCH CARDS ON YOUR CRICUT CUTTING MACHINE

How cute is this card? We all have someone whom we need to thank and there are always those people who love snow and snowmen.

This card is the perfect blend of both in such a cute way!

You make this card on any Cricut cutting machine. If using the Cricut Joy, you will want to use a premade card base and envelope.

In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.

Attach your cardstock to the Cricut StandardGrip Mat using the Cricut Brayer.

STEP 6 - LOADING YOUR MATS AND CUTTING YOUR MATERIALS

To load the mat into the machine, press the double arrows button. Do make sure that the mat is positioned under the mat guides.

You will know the machine is ready to cut your material when you see the flashing "C" button. Press that to start the cut.

Follow Design Space prompts to change out the scoring wheel, pen, and fine point cutting blade.

Once the cut is complete, make sure to peel the mat away from the cardstock rather than the cardstock from the mat. This will prevent any curling of your design.

Repeat Step 6 for until all layers have been cut.

STEP 7 - ASSEMBLE YOUR CARD

Now that everything is cut, we can start to assemble the card.
