You can be so creative when working with Susan's CountryScape dies. It is fun and easy to create a scene for either feminine or masculine cards. The new Clematis die is so pretty; I twined it through the Trellis from the CountryScapes - Backyard 2 collection. The Birdbath is from the CountryScapes - Woods 2 set. I die cut one using white card stock and colored it with Distress Ink and cut a second birdbath out of black card stock. The blue image was glued offset over the black die cut to give it dimension. There are small birds in the Woods 2 set, but I elected to use the larger birds from the CountryScapes Critters 2 set. The die cut grass is from the Woods 2 set. Three butterflies were added from the Garden Notes - Bugs and Butterflies set. The Squirrel is from the CountryScapes Country Critters set. The rose was created using the Garden Notes Rose 2 set. The sentiment is Susan's Sunshine & Love stamp. I decided to add a 'sun' -- it is a punched circle that was distressed around the edges then filled with Glossy Accents.
My friend Glenda Brooks (MagPie's Corner) posted a very pretty Fancy Fold Corner Card which I wanted to try. You can see her card and the link to this special fold card at this LINK. I created this Fancy Fold Corner on a 6x6 inch card and added and added extra layers around the corner. The sentiment is a ECD Peel Off Sticker.
