I couldn’t find any patterned paper that had all the colors in it in my stash so I decided to create a scene—SO easy to do with MFT Die-namics dies :)
First of all I laid down my background paper and stitched it to some Whip Cream card stock. Next I cut out all my die cuts, measured carefully, and stamped the sentiment. Then I added my Die-namics Woodgrain Fence die cut and over that my Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass layer. Next I added my Die-namics Sunshine sun with twine-tied button and my Die-namics Flat-Bottom Clouds, popping one up on foam dots for some dimension. To finish it off, I added a blue bird on the fence, made with my Die-namics Contempo Cage & Stamp Set die set, finished off with a little black crystal eye.
Here’s the inside with a bird, a branch, and another sentiment from the set. I curved the sentiment on my stamping block before stamping it.
Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
