Gardening birthday card

A birthday card with a garden scene for my Father-in-law who loves his garden.

I have made an 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered the top and the bottom of the card. On the top I have added blue on the top and green on the bottom. On the base of my card I have matt and layered the base of my card with green and then blue card.

I have used lots of dies, using my scraps to create a scene.

I have printed a sentiment and die cut it with a Spellbinders die from nesting set. I then cut the next two sizes in the nesting in the same colours as my matt and layering. I mounted the sentiment and then added the element to my card with foam pads so it will act as the stopper for the easel.

I die cut a small circle and added a Dad die cut to the corner of the base of my card.
