Snowy Christmas Card with 3D Foam Circles

Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a cute snowy Christmas card. I added 3D Foam Circles  White Mix for an easy and fun glittered snowy effect on the card. This technique is known as Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. Using this technique, you can perfectly match embellishments to your holiday cards. I’ll show you in detail in my tutorial.

Snowy Christmas Card Instructions

First cut some white and soft blue glittered paper into hill shapes using scissors.

Apply E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser over the back of the glittered paper. Make sure to run the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser along the bottom straight edgee so that a die cut can be tucked in between the layers.

Then adhere the layers to a piece of white cardstock. Next cut off the excess parts using scissors. Then trim the card panel to the desired size using a paper trimmer.

Adhering Santa and Friends with Depth

By using the various thicknesses of 3D Foam Squares, you can add depth to your card.  The Santa die cut is adhered with 3D Foam Squares White Mix. For a subtle depth, I secured the elves with Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Thin 3D Foam is half the height of the regular 3D Foam. See this post comparing 3D Foam for more details. Note the cute girl elf gift box were tucked in between the hilly layers.

Making Card Layers

Then adhere
both panels to a white card base using the E-Z
Runner®
Grand Refillable Dispenser
