Turkey Scene

This is a card I designed last year.  One of my followers asked if I would post it again.  It was a very fun card to create.  I hope it gives you inspiration to create a similar card.  

This autumn scene was created using Susan's CountryScapes die sets.  

This is a 6x6 inch card.  A slightly smaller piece of white card stock was used for the background.  The top portion of it was sponged with Stormy Sky Distress Ink.  

Using the CountryScapes Cloud die, four cloud edges were die cut so they could be layered at different angles to form a cloudy sky.  Using Adventure Edges, two landscapes were die cut using tan card stock. They were layered below the clouds.  

Using the Woods 1 die set, four trees were die cut using Woods Effect design paper. Three of the trees were attached over the tan landscape.  One of the trees was cut apart to become a bush in front of one of the fence posts.  Using the leaf  die in the Woods 1 die set, a lot of little leaves were die cut.  They were colored using PanPastels.

The Kentucky 3-Rail Horse Fence was die cut twice to fit across the card.  The fence had Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back so it could be attached over the trees.  One side of the fence had to be trimmed off to fit the card front.  You can use a piece of the ModaScrap Woods Effect design paper to die cut the fence for a wood grain finish.

Using the CountryScapes Critters 6 die set, three turkeys were die cut and colored with markers.  Using the CountryScapes Critters 2 die set, two of each of the birds were die cut and color sponged on.

Using the CountryScapes Cloud/Grass or Adventure Edges die set, a strip of grass was die cut, using tan card stock.  

The tree top, that was cut down, was attached next to the center fence post.  A few of the tiny leaves were attached to the branches.  All the other little leaves were attached across the bottom of the card, to resemble fallen leaves on the ground.

The three turkeys were attached at the bottom of the card.  The six little birds were attached in the trees and on the fence rail.

It is so fun to use your imagination to create a country scene using Susan's CountryScapes dies.

Love your card! You can almost smell the woodsmoke and snow in the air. Also live in small town outside of Spokane and your card certainly embodies our area! Lovely creativity!
