Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock to 7 x 12” and lay on the scoreboard landscape and score 3, 6, 9”. Cut all 4” sections away and leave only one which will be the barn from Home on the Farm die set. Place the die so the bottom blade hangs over the crease line and run through the die-cutting machine with the plate positioned so not to cut the bottom of the barn. This will give you a barn shaped pop-up box 3”. Cut white cardstock 3 x 1” and score portrait to create a joining piece. Cut each end in the shape of an arrow point and adhere to one end of the box. Cut in white cardstock 5x strips 4 x 1/2” and score 1/2” tabs at each end. These will sit in front of the barn and will be decorated with die-cuts. Adhere the same side tabs for all strips then I fold the box to adhere the other side of the tabs. Fold the pop-up box back and forth and this will ensure the strips will fold flat. Stamp 2no. barns in versafine onyx and clear heat emboss, color with red Zig Clean Color Marker. Adhere the barn front and back sandwiching the barn shape (cover the back of the card in green designer paper beforehand).
Cut 1 x 3” strips of green designer paper from Home on the Farm Paper Collection and cut into it with scissors repeatedly to give the effect of grass and adhere each grass strip to the pop-up box strip. Cut 3 panels 4 x 3” and the top approx. 1” cut as grass and adhere to the sides and front of the box. Cut a further 3x grass strips for sides and front at different heights for tucking in die-cuts (apply adhesive to the bottom of the grass strips until you have tucked in your die-cuts, add further adhesive as required). Mat and layer designer paper using the Cutedited Mat Create 2A and 2B and stamp in Archival black ‘With all my LOVE’ and adhere to the back.
