I sure have been enjoying creating cards with the new Rubbernecker May release and I especially love this spring/summer die cut fence scene. with the birds, flowers and bright sun image. I think the white scalloped layers add such a pretty touch to the scene. And once again I have to say how much I love using the Robin’s Egg cardstock as the main color for my project. It is such a lovely color of blue and makes me feel so happy.
I cut a couple of the tree panels and cut the branches apart and pieced them back together to create the single tree for my scene. It sounds complicated but it really wasn’t hard to do. I kept the larger portion of one of the tree panels and just added branches in behind the main sections using glossy accents. I added and added until I felt like I had a whole tree for my scene. The next time I do this I will cut the panels in white and will color them branches and leaves with brown and green markers.
Die Cut Fence Scene
I attached the tree to the white scalloped layer using glue dots and glossy accents. I created a smaller tree foliage section for the right side of the scene and attached with glossy accents. The fence sections were cut and attached in front of the trees using mounting tape and then I added a green grass layer in front and attached with mounting tape. I created a small fence gate and attached in place to appear open and inviting you into the scene. I used left over sections of the tree panel branches to create flower stems and attached them using glossy accents. I formed lots of tiny flowers using my molding pad and stylus and attached them to the branches to create the flower border along the fence.
The Birdhouse, Birds and Sun
I cut and assembled the birdhouse and attached it up in the tree branches using a piece of mounting tape. I added several birds in the scene to add more color and attached them with pieces of mounting tape. I attached tiny pieces of foliage to the top and base of the birdhouse but it is hard to see them in the photo. I finished the scene by attaching the pretty yellow sun in the top right corner to offset the weight of the tree on the left.
You can see all the dies that I used for my scene listed below. Thanks so much for coming by today and I sure hope you have been inspired to get out your dies and create a spring and summer die cut fence scene of your own.
Kittie, Dang you, this is such a cute card and now there are more dies I have to buy so I can try to make one like this LOL. Love the different sizes of ‘frames’ you’ve got here. Thank you for sharing you creativity….
Love it so much it makes me want to have a fence in my front yard!!! As always Kittie, you rock!!!
