Thanks Mr Snowman

Good morning Cottagecutz fans, it’s Wendy bringing you the Tuesday blog. I hope you had a lovely weekend. The weather has been kind to us in the UK so a lovely time of year for long walks.

When I bring to you a card, I really like to have a background story. In this card Mr Snowman has kindly helped Santa deliver his presents so that’s why Santa’s sack is empty

To begin with I cut out the elements from the ‘High Flying Snowman’ die. I’ve assembled some of the parts as I didn’t think you needed to see all elements cut out. Instead of using the ‘JOY’ on the flag, I stamped a sentiment, just to show you that there are other possibilities. 

Next I used some chalk to darken the clouds slightly and assembled the remainder of this element

Now to make the base of the card. I cut a card so when folded measured 5” x 4” in white and then took the largest ‘Stitched Scalloped Rectangle’ die in Navy blue and assembled to the card with 1mm foam pads

I then used the ‘Clouds Slimline die to cut a strip. I used the largest ‘Stitched Rectangle’ to cut it to size

I then curt the elements from the elements from ‘Santa’s Delivery’ die

To finish I assembled all finished items onto my card with 1mm foam pads. The Santas sack was a last minute element I added that’s why you can’t see it being cut out

So that’s my card for todays blog. I really hope you like it. Have a lovely week and I will see you Friday for another post
