A Country Diarama

Hi Dies R Us Fans,

 Kathleen here today with a 3D diorama!  It's easier then it looks. I did use a lot of dies but it is the two frame dies and these 3 edge dies that really make it easy.

Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dies - Happy Frame

Cut the die from both frame sets 4 times from heavy white cardstock and assemble the two frames so you end up with a smaller frame that measures 6" x 7" and the XL Frame 8' x 7".

I cut one of each of these 3 Edge Dies from Elizabeth Craft Dies : 914 Outdoor Edges,
 Elizabeth Craft Designs ScenicScapes Land and Sea, Pop It Ups - Western Edges -Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Cut one of each of these dies lining up the top of the die to the top of half an 8.5 x 11" pc. of white cardstock.  Color as you like.  Here's a photo of my colored ones:

Cut a rectangle that measures 8" x 7" and color with PanPastels to create the look of a "sunrise" on the top 1/3.  Then adhere the "mountain layer" to this 1st layer and then "tree layer". Next adhere the XL frame over the mountain layer.  Then adhere the "farm house layer. Next comes the smaller frame.  The last layer is the "horse layer.  I then added some more décor items:  grasses, fence, ropes, Cowgirl Hat and Boots with these sets:
