All aboard the Easter Express

Good morning Cottagecutz fans. It’s Wendy brining you the blog today. I hope your week is going well so far. We still have the new spring dies on offer at 60% off the entire bundle and you can find them here

The card I’ve made for today was such fun to make. The dies are absolutely stunning and I just had to use them. 

To begin with I took a slimline card and used the ‘clouds slimline’ die as a template to create the sky on the card. You cut out a small line of clouds and then use a distress ink over the stencil with a soft brush or whatever you feel comfortable with. Start part way down the card and then layer up from there. I think I used 3 layers of clouds in total.

Next I took the ‘Grass slimline dies and cut 2 pieces. The first piece I glued down but the second piece I attached to the card with 1mm 3D foam pads for some dimension,

I then cut a very fine sliver of brown card so that the trains look like they are on a track. I just glued this straight to the card.

So to create the train I cut out the ‘Bunny Express Engine’ and the Bunny Express Carrot Cars’ I tried to stick to the colours on the die packet ad the are beautifully coloured. Once assembled, I stuck them to the card with 1mm foam pads. The dies are really intuitive so its really easy to pick out the parts you need to cut

I used the little chick die from ‘Miss Spring Bunny’ as he is super cute and he sits at the back of the train. I also used the trees from the Campin out release and dotted these around the card after the train was assembled.

I loved the sign I used on a card last week that said ‘Easter Blessing’ so I used it again on this card.

I really hope that you like the card and take the plunge to make a super sweet card this Easter
