Happy Father's Day

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a Father's Day card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog featuring the new Country Farm die release.  I love that I was able to use these adorable die cuts for a Father's Day card.

I might have gotten a bit carried with incorporating so many dies into this one card but I couldn't resist the adorable farm scene.  I used basic card stock for all of the die cuts and shaded them with my Oxide Inks.  The die cuts are from the following die sets:  Grass Slimline, Clouds Slimline, Hills Slimline, Country Farm Cows and the Farm Tractor w/Trailer.

A portion of my card base was darkened with some ink and splattered with paint to give the appearance of a dirt road.  I shaded a strip of white card stock with blue ink and adhered it to the card background.  The cloud border was layered on top.
The next step in my design process was to layer the die cut hills on top of the cloud border with the clouds slightly peeking above the hills.  I also prepared the fence for my card by glueing the 2 pieces together.  The grass was adhered along the bottom edge of the fence.

The fence pieces were affixed on my card with the sweet cow behind the fence.  I ended up slightly trimming off the edges of the fence so that it would fit perfectly on my card.
The farm tractor and trailer was placed in the dirt section of my card slightly overlapping the fence.
To finish off my card, I added the 2 milk cans on top of the fence and the stamped sentiment tag in the corner.
Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:
