A note from Courtney…

I created this summer scene with little birds bathing off to the side of a house. The majority of the scene was built with the new Door to Door Summer Decor die set. The bird bath, bird house, bushes, pink flowers and the little bird bathing are all part of the die set.


To help create the scene, I used the brick patterned paper from the Build a Scene 6×6 patterend paper pack for the background. The two little birds off to the left are from the Little Bits – Birds die set & the white flowers are from the Door to Door Spring Decor die set. One thing to remember when creating a scene with lots of little die cuts – be sure to use an adhesive sheet on the back of the cardstock before die cuttting to make things super easy!

Thanks so much, Courtney, for sharing this wonderful die-cut card with us today! For more of Courtney’s work, please visit her blog, Back to the Drawing Board. Have a joyful day!
