Happy New Year Winter Easel Card

Good afternoon Cottagecutz Fans, I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. Happy Friday! It’s Wendy bringing you the blog today and i am suer excited to bring you a card using the new winter dies. They are just adorable and I struggled to choose which one to use so I used quite a few :-)

I thought I’d make an easel card to mix things up a bit. Cut a Piece of 12’ x 5’ and score in half so 6”. Score again on the card at 3”. Cut another piece of card 6” x 5” and attach the bottom of the card to the folded design again at the bottom

To create the main part of the card I took the ‘Clouds Slimline’ die to create a background. I find it easier to start part way up the card with my clouds and build it up to the top

Next I cut the line for the cable cars, then the cable cars in different colours. I added them onto the card with 1mm foam pads

I then  cut out the mountain from the same die (Winter Ski Trip) and added part way down the card

The next part of the card was to cut some snow using the ‘Hills Slimline’. I cut the snow out twice and layered it on top of each other with 1mm foam pads. Next I cut the ‘Winter Chalet’ and assembled. I just used the chalet and the fire from this die. I then cut some trees from the ‘Winter Whimsical Village’ to add to either side of the card

To finish I cut out the ‘Winter Moose’. How cute is he. I added some pink chalk for his cheeks as it would be cold out in the snow

To ensure my easel card stood up I used the Snowboard from the ‘Winter Penguin Snowboarding’ die and attached it to the card with 2mm foam pads. So the card folds completely flat which is great to pop in an envelope

I really hope you have enjoyed the card and are looking forward to a crafty weekend.
Enjoy, hugs
