Hi Farm Friends!! New Farmer Jess here. (Wow! It feels good to say that, hehe). My tutorial is to create a quick-ish card in an assembly line format. Originally, I wasn't planning on creating 3 cards and I wanted the time to be a lot quicker but if you don't lollygag the way I do, Lol, then you should have 3 cards in no time.
STEP 1: Gather your supplies. I used:
Scraps, 4" doilies, the Beans and my card bases (A2 size)
I used the Beans because a) they are adorable and b) they already come with their own embellishments and sentiment.
STEP 2: Cut your doilie in half and glue down onto the base.
STEP 3: Cut your DP Piece to 2.75x4.75 and glue down as seen.
STEP 4: Stamp your Beans onto a 3x4 white base (the paper that you use for stamping).
Color as you would.
STEP 5: Grab a few embellishments (buttons, flowers, etc) and sprinkle them around your card. You can always just skip this step and just leave them like they were in STEP 4 (but of course fully colored)

The total time i took was almost 3 hours but I ran across some problems. I had to cut out my beans and then glue them down onto their base. I originally had a flower on there and when i ripped it off i made a boo-boo on the card so I had to figure out how to cover that up. Plus I needed to stop and take pictures and measurements so now when you sit down to create your assembly cards, it shouldn't take you as long. I would say that if you don't wander off into space like me, lol, then you can create your 3 cards in an hour, hour and a half. Or maybe less time :)
Thanks for stopping by!
