Meet the Snow Family – Baby Snow

This card is part of the Karen Burniston Design Team snowmen challenge for November.

Today, I’m show you how to Baby Snow.

Baby Snow is comprised of the Mini Ball Pop-Up and the Bitty Ball Pop-Up with his coal features and scarf from the Snowman Add-Ons. His smaller carrot nose and stick arms are from the Snowman Twist Circle set while his cap is custom made.

Cut two of the Bitty Ball halves and two of the Mini Ball halves. (I was able to get all the pieces from a single sheet of 8.5×11 inch cardstock.) I find watching the assembly videos for the balls very useful. (Bitty Balls, Mini-Balls) Numbering the order of gluing the tabs is useful for the assemble of the balls. I cut all the trapezoid panels from an embossed white cardstock. And the ball halves are cut from a 100 lb. smooth white cardstock.

Assemble the balls as shown on videos, including a brad in the bottom of the Bitty Ball. (I didn’t have a brad when I made Baby Snow, so I improvised with a pipe-cleaner. I works, thin wire would be a better choice as the pipecleander adds bulk to the bottom of the card.)

Add facial features to the mini ball. The hat is one half mini ball cut in red, embossed with a knitted pattern embossing fold, and then trimmed down to fit the head. Once glued on, a three snowflake pom-pom was added to the top.

The scarf pieces are glued to the top of the Bitty ball edges and a full-size hexagon is traced using the die to cover the top of the body.

The ear flap and bill of the hat were free handed pieces cut first from scrap paper and once correct size traced onto the red cardstock and fussy cut. Some red and white twine was added when gluing on the ear flaps.

Once the decorations are complete attach Baby Snow to the card base.
