Jake Winter Circle Step Cards

There is a new release and freebie today at StampFairy and my FAVOURITE bear is back!!!

Jake the bear is just so cute, I adore his innocent expression. He seems to be just begging for a cuddle.  I'm so delighted that Gerda has decided to let him out to play again this winter that I've made not just one, but two matching cards using the newly released images.

I think I'm right in saying this is my first attempt at a Circle Step card, and it did take a fair bit of practising to get the folds right with the size of circle that I used. After ruining my first try, I used that as a template for the others.  There are a couple of tutorials around, but I used the one here.

And once I'd got the card base shape fold right, they were exceptionally quick to make.

My first card is Jake carrying a large snowball.  I hope he's intending to start a snowman with that snowball rather than throw it at someone, cos that one's gonna sting ...

And my second card is Jake with his Christmas tree....
