Instructions: The card measures 8 1/2 inches by 6 1/4 inches when completed. Taking the white card stock, make a tent fold card to the measurements. Find the sheet 1B and trim this to a little smaller than the card base. Ink the edges with the coffee ink and foam inking tool. Glue this to the card front.

Find the sheet 3B in the paper collection and the cut-mat-create dies, cut the three backgrounds for the card. One of each 3.75 x 5.75” (cows and sentiment block), 1.75 x 3.5” (flowers block), 3.75 x 3.75” (the barn block) and 1.75 x 1.75” (the sentiment block) Taking the card board, cut four layers for each of the blocks. When all the layers are adhered together then ink the edges with the coffee ink. Adhere in place as shown. Before gluing the sentiment block in place , first stamp this with the sentiment.

Make the flowers using the sunflower stamp and die. Use the sheet 2B for the stamping with the coffee ink. Shape the flowers with the flower shaping tools and the micro beads for the flower centers.

Using the white card stock and coffee ink, stamp the cows, milk can, barn and dog. Bring colour to these by using the colouring list: Dog: Carmine Pink-0520. Milk can: Neutral Grey-2120, Sienna Gold-0240. Barn: Chilli Red-0500, Sienna Gold-0240. Cows: Carmine Pink-0520, Saddle Brown-1740. Die cut these out by using the matching dies. Cut extra layers from the card board and glue all the layers together. Fussy cutting as needed. Glue all the images in place and add the flowers to finish the card off.
