Country Barn Easel
by Jeanne Jachna
Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! Today I'm sharing a card made with the Country Barn Easel Die. I love seeing how the entire team has interpreted this die a little differently and all the creative ideas for this die!
I'm a big fan of special folded cards but they've always seemed a little too complicated for me. I am so impressed with the Poppystamps Easel dies because they are a snap to put together. All of the pieces are needed.. you just cut and then fold and add one piece of tape and BAM! Your card base is put together. This Country Barn Easel includes all the pieces - door frames in two different styles, roof lines and even a clean panel to slip inside for your sentiment.
Once the bard is assembled you can add your own choice of separate dies to embellish and create a scene. I added a Whittle Cow and Goat that I added details to with a marker. I thought some silly eyes might be fun too!
I added grass with the Hill and Valley Grass Border and it doubles for straw for my Whittle Chicken when cut from yellow cardstock.
The Country Barn Easel is the perfect setting for the latest Whittle animals! And if you haven't tried one of the Poppystamps Easel card dies I hope you'll give one a try! If I can do this you can too! I promise!
