CottageCutz Winter Wounderland Bendi Fold

Greetings Happy Crafters!  Today is my day to share with you a creation made with the fabulous CottageCutz dies.  This card is called the Bendi fold and was created by my friend Bibiana.  You can see her absolutely fabulous creation here.  Thank you so much Bibiana for the inspiration.  I added something extra to the Bendi Fold--------I am going to call this card "The Tent Topper Bendi Fold"......lol
This card was so much fun to make.  I have been wanting to try it out for some time.  It is so much easier than it looks.  When I received these dies from CottageCutz, I just knew I would be doing this card with them.  I love these dies-they were perfect.
Here is my card opened up.   Everything you see here is CottageCutz dies except for the fence.  That is a Martha Stewart punch.  I used Diamond Stickle dry glitter on all the white dies.  They sparkle in real life beautifully.
Here is a list of the dies from the bottom up:  Winter Wonderland Deer (the deer were cut apart), Winter Wonderland Border (the house on the left was cut off to fit the card),  Snow Swept Border (the tree on the right side was trimmed) Winter Snowflake Wreath, and Santa & Reindeer Flying.  On the inside of the card-Winterland Village, Homemade Christmas Gift Set (the sentiment) and the Rabbit at the fence is from the Rustic Sign & Tree die.  The trees are also from the Rustic Sign & Tree Die.
Love, Love, Love this card style.  Don't you think it is perfect for these dies!  Thanks a bunch for stopping by today to view this Tent Topper Bendi Card!  Sure do appreciate it.  See you soon!

Here are the dies:

Holy Toledo (or something like that), this is a masterpiece, Carol. I'm glad you said it was easier than it looked. Because to me, it looks very complicated to make and very time consuming...but worth every second. Knowing you, it was probably done in no time. I love all the dies you used and how you've made such a sparkly, wintry creation. I want all of them. :-)

Carol, your post popped up and my eyes went wide! I don't even know what to say about the beauty in the subtle "lavender" background colors and stamping, and the beautifully glittery die cuts which formed not just an interesting home decor item, but more like a pop up book because of all the little stories being shown in every part of the the special folds and interactive elements! Having lingered a long time here, I feel sufficiently happy that Christmas is on its way, and all the magic of Christmas, is already here! Thank you for the blessing. hugs, de

OMG! And "WOW" are the first things I said when I looked at this gorgeous creation! I don't have enough descriptive words in my vocabulary to even begin to say how beautiful this is. I was out of town & just now saw it when I got to your blog for my daily check to see what fabulous things you have created. This is just jaw dropping!

Sherrie Clark said...

Carol, your cards are spectacular!! I just came from Splitcoast stampers and you left me the nicest comment on my card, thank you. That gave me the opportunity to hop over here to your blog and see your artistic creations. All I can say is - WOW!!! You have the gift. Your inspiring to say the least. Blessings, Sherrie Clark
