Round Easel Racoon Skiing

Good morning Cottagecutz fans. I hope your week is going well so far. It’s Wendy bringing you the blog today. Can you believe we are over half way through January, Before you know it, we’ll be making those Christmas cards again :-)

I have been a massive fan of easel cards today and this time I thought, why not mix it up and make a circle easel card.

To begin with take a piece of light blue card, fold in half and make sure that is large enough to to be able to use the largest of the ‘Nested Scalloped Stitched circles’. What you need to do is make sure that when you out it though the die cutting machine that you lave a small amount at the top so you don’t cut 2 circles, but one 

Next fold one of the circles in half. You can measure but I’m not a fan so I folded it in half as best I could. It doesn’t really matter as no one will see it as we go through making the card

Nect cut out another circle of the same size and attached this to the bottom of the folded card

I then cut a white ‘ Nested Stitched Circle’ to fit inside the card above. 

I then decided to have some sky on the top of the circle so that it will be effective on the finished card. I did this by using the ‘Clouds’ Slimline die and used it as a template. As always, start part way down the card an build up to the top

Next I cut the same size white circle as those above and used the ‘Hills Slimline’ to cut some now hills into the card. I attached the base layer with glue and then the next layer with 1mm foam pads

I cut some of the tress from the ‘Winter Whimsical Village and attach to the card with 1mm foam pads

To finish off my card I assembled the ‘Winter Racoon on Ski’s’. I added some chalk for effect

I attached the Racoon to the cars with 1mm foam

To Keep the card upright I used the snowboard from the ‘Snowboarding Penguin’. I attached it with 2mm foam pads 

Dies I used:

I hope you have a lovely rest of the week and I will see you on Friday with hopefully a ner project using the Spring Release

Oh and don’t forget to check out our YouTube channel with the latest project

I love easel cards and this is such a cute one with the skiing raccoon- and using the snowboard as a stopper is creative - keeps the winter sport theme
