Today I’m sharing a clean and simple die cut carousel card with an all white frame and background that allows the carousel and animals to be the main focus of the card.  I love the lion, horse and camel with their red saddles ready for riders.  At first I thought I would put all the three of the animals at different heights so they would appear to be in motion but decided I liked them best all on one level.  I framed the Carousel using the Rectangle Combo #3 and created the ground using the Deckle Hills and Grass #2

Come see how I made this die cut carousel card.

The Frame and Grass

  • Cut the frame layers using white cardstock and the grass layers using green cardstock.
  • Attach the two frames together using double stick tape.
  • Attach the grass layer to the back of the frame.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.
  • Tuck a few grass springs in behind the grass layer and attach with glossy accents.

The Carousel

  • Cut the carousel out using red and white cardstock and attach the white pieces to the top of the awning using glossy accents.
  • Use red cardstock to cut the saddles out.
  • Cut the lion, horse and camel and their individual parts out using white cardstock.
  • Color the camel, lion and mane using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks and a mini applicator.
  • Use Pumice Stone ink and a mini applicator to color the horse, mane and tail.
  • Attach the saddles to the three animals using glossy accents.
  • Assemble the main carousel sections and attach them to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Finish by attaching the lion, horse and camel to the card base using mounting tape.

Come see how I made this colorful die cut carousel card.

This die cut carousel card was fun to make.  Rubbernecker also has a cute Ferris Wheel die cut that I want to play with next.  I’ve linked it below if you want to check it out.  I sure do appreciate you coming by and hope you have a wonderful day.
