Country scene

I have a country scene card to share today on the DiesRUs blog.

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.
Memory Box Forest Tree Frame or the Memory Box Woodland Tree Silhouette.

The following are the dies I used for this project.

Very impactful! I love country scenes, this is as fresh as a spring breeze :)
(But it looks oh so fiddly to do well, as you have) I think the cut-outs would stick to my fingers!!
Glad you enjoyed your day out at the lake, with the goose family!

Oh, I so love it ... maybe because my heart belongs to the country, maybe because I love horses, the thing is that this card of yours is truly delightful to me !!!

With much thankfulness I'm sending blessings on your day, today,
hugs and more hugs

This is so pretty!! My Mom and I did not always get along but thankfully, we said everything that we had to say to each other before she passed and I was the last one to see her , telling her it was oky to go and be with my Dad. So i have no regrets. Time is short and no one knows what tomorrow may bring so one must also take measures so that they would not have any regrets...Thanks for always taking the time to stop by!!

Beautiful use of this framed die cut, Connie, in creating a shaped, interesting card. Your serene countryside scene is peaceful and soft. I feel as though I've been to a class with all the fabulous technique tips and terrific photos! And you colored every tiny leaf! Whew! The two colors of grasses do look like rolling hills! Wonderful design, Connie! hugs, de

Ooooh, love this beautiful pastoral scene and all the dies you used to create it. Got a thing for fences and this one really makes a nice addition to the scene. Your cloud background is so well done, too. Really wonderful, Connie!

Oh...I love this card. I sold my horse many years ago and had hoped to get one again, although it's not looking like it's going to happen anytime soon now. Looking at the card gave me such a wonderful feeling!
