Birthday Garden

 Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

It is Pam creating with you on the blog today!

I am using one of our new slimline dies today and a variety of dies from our Springtime Release.  I have a number of birthdays coming up in the spring and summer months so I am getting a head start.

Design Steps:
1.  Begin by using a blue slimline card base and set aside.  Use the second from the largest Slimline Stitched Rectangle die and cut out 2 (one for the inside) using white card stock.  On the white rectangle for the front of the card use a blue ink and blender brush add some sky in the three spots as shown above
2.  Use the Victorian Fence die and cut out 3 pieces of fence on kraft card stock.  Using the Spring Grass die cut out 3 pieces of grass on green card stock.  Trim down the grass and fence then glue the grass to the bottom front of the fence.  Glue the fence bottom only to the card front in the area where you inked.  The reason you only glue down the bottom is so you can tuck in the flowers behind the fence
3.  Use the Spring Flower PotBunny Gnome 1Cat w/Spring Bird, Spring Bloom CottageBird w/ Bluebells, Mouse w/Flower Cart for all of your garden pieces.  I used 2 shades of green, purple, yellow, pink, tan, gray, black and vellum

4.  Assemble your flowers, watering can, birds, and bees.  Glue the flowers behind the fence as shown.  After your flowers are tucked in glue the top part of the fence down.  Pop up the watering can, bunny and bird as shown.  Glue the bees in place as shown,  add little pearls to the inside of your flower then stamp and add your sentiment. Your card is complete

I got a lot of use out of the Spring Release collection with different pieces from a variety of dies.  And I just love how it turned out.
