Next, cut the background on white cardstock using the Large Slimline With Sliders die set
and kraft cardstock trees from the Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop die.
Cut the trees apart, and then run the trees through your die cut machine a second time with the slimline die to get matching stitched lines at the top and bottom. Lay out your pieces, and take a reference photo for later.
For the grass, I cut a piece of bright green cardstock, ran it through the slimline die for matching edges, and ink blended Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink
around the edges.
And since this ink blending is so much fun, I added some Tea Dye Distress Ink
to the trees cut from kraft cardstock. Here, you can see how much dimension a little ink blending adds to die cut pieces.
Use your reference photo and start assembling the scene on your card front, using a Lawn Fawn Glue Tube.
As a finishing touch you can add white gel pen or glitter highlights to many of the critters in the scene.
