Susan’s Garden- CountryScapes – Planted in Faith

April 27, 2015

Hi Friends!

It’s Debra Hensley today for Susan’s Garden Design Team. Spring is in full bloom and flowers are popping up everywhere. Susan’s Garden CountryScapes dies are perfect to create a lovely outdoor scene with gorgeous miniature blooming flowers. They can be mixed and matched to create your personal little piece of heaven.

Here’s how I made this card:

1. Fold a piece of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ white cardstock in half to form a standard A2 size card base. Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of pattern paper. Adhere to card front.

2. Die cut pieces on colored cardstock as follows:

  • From Country Flora 1:  1-2 long grass strips – green.
  • From Backyard 1:  3 large pots – white, 4 sets of geranium flower tops – red, 4 sets of small flowers – yellow.
  • From Country Critters 1:  1 bunny – white, 1 bird – white.
  • From Country Fence:  1 fence – white.
  • From The Woods 1 (not shown below):  1 Tree trunk – tan, 3 sets of leaves – green.
    • Ink white pieces as desired.

4. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock in black ink. Adhere to card front on foam adhesive. Adhere 1 full grass strip and 1 partial strip to bottom of card front as shown below.

    Awesome card! Heh, although I feel like I’m complementing myself too – I recently made one very similar to this, with the Cardinal on the fence too! 🙂
