Country Scene

Hi Connie here again today to share a little country scene I made. I think this scene would work for any Horse lover or person that just loves the countryside so it can be for male or female on your card making list.

I wanted my card to be a shaped card so I did a top fold on my card, here is a picture of how I laid the fold onto my die, I used removable tape to keep it in place on the bottom while cutting.

I sponged the background (card base) again like I did in my bird card, I thought I would share a picture of the background in progress, I sponge the top of my template that I made and then move the template in another area and repeat all the way down. The background looks a little pink in this picture but it is cream cardstock I was working on.

I wanted a little dimension on my scene so I added Scotch Permanent mounting tape that I cut in small pieces to add to the back of my cut out of the tree. You can see my background scene on the top left there, I had added the two different greens to show rolling hills.  I ended up moving the horse down a little bit farther than what you see in that picture because it looked like he was standing on the fence.

You wouldn't have to do a shape card to make this little scene you can just add it to any card base.

Dies R us no longer carries the Memory Box Debutante Frame or Orchard Tree Frame, I am so sorry about that, but I would like to suggest a couple others that you could also use. 

The following are the dies I used for this project.
