Outdoor activities

Hi, Janja here!

Do you like to go to the mountains, camp in the nature, enjoy the quiet moments of fishing?
With the new release of CottageCutz dies - Camping, you can catch all these outdoor activities on your projects.
If you are interested how I created the whole card, please sit back, since today's post is a little longer.

- white and colored cardstock
- washi tape
- Distress ink: Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn, Aged Mahogany, Black Soot
- Memento ink: Dandelion, Tangelo, Bamboo Leaves
- glue, adhesive pads, double-sided adhesive tape
- punch- round
- punch - slot
- ribbon
- string

Prepare the card base:
- two thicker cardstock for cover pages: 4.3 x 6" (11 x 15,3 cm)
- white cardstock: 17.2 x 6" (43,6 x 15,2 cm)
- folding measurements are: 4.3", 8.6", 12.9" (10,9 cm, 21,8 cm, 32,7 cm)

Glue two middle sheets with double-sided adhesive tape to get a pocket. On the upper part cut out a semicircle with a round punch. 

In the pocket insert a tag:
- brown cardstock: 3.5 x 4.7" (9 x 12 cm)
- white cardstock: 3.3 x 4.5" (8,3 x 11,5 cm)

Cut out a slot for ribbon with a puncher.

Paste cover pages. Our card base is now completed.

Trim colored and patterned papers:
- 2 x patterned paper: 4.3 x 6" (10,8 x 15,1 cm)
- 4 x blue cardstock: 4.3 x 6" (10,8 x 15,1 cm)
- 6 x patterned paper: 4.3 x 2.1" (10,8 x 5,2 cm)

Add on each sheet washi tape and a strip of a patterned paper (0.6" from the bottom edge). On cover pages add two different washi tapes.

In two patterned strips cut out openings for the mountains and lake with dies.

With brushes, clouds mask and Distress inks create clouds on the backgrounds.

In the middle of two backgrounds cut out semicircle with a punch.

From colored cardstock cut out all motives, which will be added to the backgrounds.
On the following photos, you can see only a few of them.

Now we can start by assembling and attaching individual sheets to the card base.
