Directions:

  1. Stamp wheat image on cream cardstock.

  3. Cut the next smaller die from the cream cardstock.  Stamp the main image in Bottle.  I colored the image with distress inks and a Colorbox stylus.  I also used a color pencil to highlight the fence and some of the house.
  4. Apply the thinking of you piece to the dark green cardstock piece and the dark green piece to the base card.
  5. Add foam tape to the back of the main image and center in the cut out hole.
