Circus Fun


It's Anja here. Finally my Circus and Slimline dies arrived. And this is the first card I made with my new goodies. 

For this card I used:

- Cottage Cutz dies (Balancing Elephant, Prancing Pony, Leaping Lion, Windows Slimline, Clouds Slimline, Nested Rectangles Slimline),

- Distress Inks,

- white card base (10x21 cm),

- patterned paper (9,5x21 cm),

- white card stock for die cuts,

- black pen,

- white pen,

- washi tape,

- paper trimmer, 

- adhesive foam pads,

- paper glue.


 First I cut and colored all three animals.

Next I cut all the parts for the background. I trimmed the patterned paper and die cut all the other three parts. I used the second largest die from the Nested Rectangles Slimline set. I colored the rectangle with red Distress Ink and then cut the Windows Slimline die out of it. I also cut two windows out of white card stock.

I also decided to add a curtain in the back. I used Clouds Slimline die to make the curtain. I used a small piece of the paper to make it look like drapes.

Then I arranged all the pieces on the card base and glued it together. I added the curtain between two window cuts. I used adhesive foam pads to adhere the animals. And my card was done. 

That's all from me for today. Have a nice Sunday and see you again next week.
