Country Village

I never really got to play with these toppers, and needed a thank you card to send, so I chose this scene from the Country Village Cottages set. I cut out the foreground piece, then used temporary adhesive to hold the two pieces of the scene together while I die cut them. I added some dimension to the foreground piece using an embossing stylus from the back side, then adding Marigold and Meadow Flower Soft to the rose bush on the right. I used a glaze pen on the windows to give them a little shine, then used Meadow and Polar White Flower Soft on the vines against the house. The foreground pieced is popped up with foam tape. The topper is set down into a diecut frame which gives it a little negative border. The taglet is also part of the topper set. What a fun way to create a quick and beautiful card!

Just for fun - here's a great link to get to know the artist behind Flower Soft's beautiful toppers and Moments in Time stamps! So inspiring.

Thanks for stopping by!
