An 11”x 5 ½” piece of cardstock
Patterned paper for decorating card
Markers or other coloring implement
Ruler or Scor Pal
Cut your card base to 11” x 5 ½” and then score on the horizontal lines and cut on the two vertical lines. I actually lightly draw the lines in pencil before scoring and cutting to help me keep on track!

You might want to try this on a piece of scrap paper first to be sure you understand it. I messed up two perfectly good pieces of cardstock the first time I tried this card. After scoring and cutting you should be able to fold your card base to look like this!
Cover the front of the card however you wish with patterned paper.
I created grass with my Fiscars punch.
You could cut grass by hand or do something different with your card.
Here it is with the grass adhered to the card front.
Stamp and color you images on white scraps.
Cut out the images and adhere to your card.
Then I cut these images out and added them to the card.
Here’s another view of the finished card.
I would love to see what you come up with.
