Episode 36

Hello everyone! Happy first day of December! Welcome back to Art Lab, today I will be sharing this super fun idea for making a wintery Artist Trading Card! Get on your snow gear and lets build a snow man!

So first you are gonna paint the card a very light blue

Next print out this template. Cut out the circles and trace them onto felt. Cut out the circles from the felt.

Once the paint is dry glue on the felt circles in the shape of a snowman. I just used a glue stick.

 

(cringes at the terrible photo)

Add a face and maybe some buttons with different colored sharpie’s!

And I just wrote, “Let it Snow!” on the front.

And now you have a cute and easy ATC!

  6. Send it off to make someone happy!

Ahh, I love Christmas lights. They’re so cheery, and really make Christmas feel cozy. Don’t you agree? Do you string lights up around your house? We don’t usually, but this year we strung some on our front porch, and it looks beautiful!😀
