Snowman Christmas Cards - snowman, snowflakes, snow

Snowman Christmas cards are popular. Snowmen, snow and snowflakes are designs which are popular in Christmas greeting cards. Imagine winter without these. So incorporate these images into your holiday cards.

I have so many snowman rubber stamps so making these is fun since I can use different snowman images for each Christmas card design.

I bought some clear rubber stamps by Hero Arts and some wood mounted stamps from Penny Black a few weeks ago. Among these rubber stamps are snowflakes and snowman images. So I just decide to make some snowman Christmas greeting card designs.

No snowman rubber stamps! Don't worry! Just draw them. They are so easy to draw. Remember to use a pigment ink pen to draw so you can add colors with water coloring medias. I love using Pigma Micron pen by Sakura. It's waterproof and fade proof.

Below are two snowman Christmas cards I made with snowman rubber stamps.

For the above snowman Christmas card, I used a masking technique to create the snow covered ground.
