More New CountryScapes dies

 Today I designed a Get Well card using some of Susan's new CountryScapes dies that are coming soon at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  This is a 4 1/2" x 6" card.  The dies used for the vase of flowers are in the CountryScapes - Backyard 2 die set.  The tall greenery behind the flowers is a die cut from the CountryScapes - Woods 2 set.  The white background was embossed with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Damask embossing folder. I distressed the edges of this piece. The tag used in the center, is from the ECD Tags & More 5 - Sunburst die set.  The row of dots under the tag were die cut with one of the dies from the same tag set.  The scallop oval was die cut using one of the dies from the Accordion Oval Card set.  The pretty butterflies are from Susan's Garden Notes - Bugs & Butterflies.  For the sentiment I used stickers from ECD

Below I will show you how I created the vase of flowers.

 In this picture you can see the little flowers I shaped from the CountryScapes - Backyard 2 set.  In this set you also get the vase and the leaves you use to place the flowers on -- this is the large green piece on the black molding pad in the upper right corner.  I have shaped that piece to give dimension to the flowers.  I wanted to add more greenery behind the flowers, so I die cut the leaves shown, which are from the Garden Patch - 7/8-inch & Mini Leaves die set.  These little leaves look just like the ones on the larger leaf piece.  To make them realistic, I shaped each leaf with the smallest ball stylus from Susan's Tool Set.  Just press down lightly on the front side of each little leaf (on the molding pad), then turn it over and press on the stem to give it shape. 

 I started assembling the vase of flower by gluing the tall greenery behind the vase.  (The vase is from the CountryScapes - Backyard 2 die set.)  Next I attached the greenery from the same set at the top of the vase using a dimensional glue dot. 

The small leaves where glued down on the large green leaf die cut, overlapping them to create fullness.  

The tiny shaped flowers were attached over the leaves.  It is easiest to use the self-closing tweezers from Susan's Tool Set to pick up the little flowers, dip the back in glue and place them over the leaves.  Add as many flowers as you like over the leaves.

Below is a list of supplies used from Elizabeth Craft Designs:
