Instructions: The ready top fold card measures, 7" by 7". To prepare the card front, choose a 6" by 6" card panel from the designer paper, glue it on the white cardstock keeping a border of 1/16" on all sides and cut the window out using Cut Mat Create 2A die set. Choose another paper from the same collection cut 6 1/2" by 6 1/2" and distress all the sides using sharp scissors. Layer both the panels on the ready card base as shown.
Cut 3 pieces of corners from white cardstock using Swirly Accent Spray Die and glue them on the corners of the window as shown.
Stamp all the required images from Home on the Farm Cling Stamp Set, Happy Meadows Cling Stamp Set and Barnyard Accents Cling Stamp Set using black archival ink on white cardstock. Paint all the images with Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers and then cut them using their coordinating dies.
Stamp Leafy foliage from Leafy Accents Stamp sets on Vellum cardstock using Hero Arts white pigment ink, sprinkle white heat embossing powder and dust extra. Next, heat set the images and cut them using their coordinating dies. Color the foliage using Peeled Paint Distress Oxide. Shape the foliage using needle tool.
Stamp Classic Sunflower using Sunflower and Bright Tangelo Archival ink on flower making paper and cut using coordinating die. Color the flowers using Sunflower Archival ink and shape them using Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool. Add black small size pearl pollens to the center of the flowers and dust the flowers using an adhesive that dries clear. Stamp another coordinating size sunflower using Peeled Paint ink onto olive cardstock and diecut, shape using Deluxe Flower Shaping kit and place one under each flower thus acting as the sepal.
Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown and finish the card by tying 2 tags to the spine of the card with the help of twine.
