Instructions: My finished card size is 6" X 6". I used the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper as the card base as it is very thick and a great weight for cards. Cover the card base with a piece of the paper collection. I used Sheet 11-A and chose one of the 6 x 6 panels. I used jet black to stamp the barn and most of the elements. I also used Rich Cocoa to stamp the plants and the fence. I colored the sunflowers with Leaf Green, Fern Green and Sunflower. I used the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to add a bit of dimension to the flowers and plants. Add Prills to the center of the sunflowers and set aside to dry.

I used various inks to color the goat, rooster, milk can and the barn. This is a great place for you to use whatever color you like. Once everything is colored to your liking you can decide on the placement and start to glue everything down. I started with the barn then I added the milk can and the goat and rooster. On the other side of the barn I glued down the sunflowers and I glued the cow in front of the flowers. I cut up the cow's neck so it would fit down over the fence better. Next, glue down the fence and add the dog in front of the fence.

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and cut it out with one of the Ornamental Tags Die then I distressed the edges with Distress Ink and used dimensional tape to adhere it down. Next, I tied a bow and used Scor-Tape to glue it to the corner of the sentiment. The card is ready to go.
