Celebrate with Cheery Lynn Designs

For those of you who love Cheery Lynn Designs as I do and have the Victorian Picket Fence, you are going to be wild about the new Patriotic Swag designed to fit the fence.  It is 3 individual dies, so you can cut the white, the red and the blue pieces separate but you can run them through your die cut machine at the same time.  No wasted paper and so cute!  Here is my project using the Patriotic Swag....


I decided to make an easel card because I wanted lots of dimension.  I used
blue Coredinations Whitewash paper for the front of my house, adding texture with my Big Weaver plate.  I then sanded the paper to make the "siding lines" appear.  I added a door using my Screen Door die but instead of adding screen, I made it a solid door by adding white Whitewash paper.  The texture on this paper really makes it look like wood.  Using the same white Whitewash paper, I die cut my Victorian Picket Fence.  To make it stand up, I cut the lower half of it out of a piece of heavy acrylic packaging, glued it to the bottom of the fence, then bent it so it would stand up on the card.  It will fold down so the card can be closed and mailed out.  Next came the Patriotic Swag, as you can see, 2 of them fit perfectly across the fence, then another for the door.  I added the Grass Border across the bottom of the fence and used my Oval Little Stackers dies for the computer generated sentiment.  Then I added a flower using the smaller flower from Judy's Blooms and a leaf from the Tropical Leaves set.  The adorable girl is a digi image from Karen's Doodles, she has several patriotic images that would work well with this die.  Finished size is 5.5" square.
