Pick out the rough triangle die that cuts out a lattice from the Split Card Textures Dies. Put it on the left side of the vertical large green designer paper piece so just a tiny bit of designer paper shows on the top, left, and bottom edges . Run through the machine. Use the paper-piercing tool and the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip on the Take Your Pick to remove all the pieces.
Use Stampin' Seal and Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the cut designer paper rectangle to the center of the large Mango Melody rectangle.
Adhere the Mango Melody rectangle with designer paper attached to the front of the vertical Granny Apple Green card. Make sure the lattice cut out in the designer paper is on the left side.
As you are ready to stamp using the Thanks A Bunch Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp. Put a piece of Grid Paper on top of the Mat to protect it from ink.
Mount the large, more solid carrot image from the Thanks A Bunch Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Mango Melody Ink Pad. Stamp it on the left side of the vertical white rectangle at a very slight angle so the bottom tip of the carrot is about 1/4" from the bottom and about 1/4" from the left edge. Leave the stamp on the block.
Re-ink the large, more solid carrot image on Block H with the Mango Melody Ink Pad. Stamp it on the vertical white rectangle so it just barely overlaps the previously stamped carrot on the upper right side.
Mount the large, more detailed carrot stripes image from the Thanks A Bunch Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Pumpkin Pie Ink Pad. Stamp it over the top of one of the previously stamped carrot images so the right edges line up. Re-ink the stamp and repeat with the other previously stamped carrot image.
Mount the long stem of fine foliage image from the Thanks A Bunch Set on Block C. Ink up only the top of the foliage and a tiny amount of the stem by pressing it to the side of the open Garden Green Ink Pad. Stamp it over the top of one of the carrots. Re-ink being sure not to ink up too much of the stem and stamp it over the top of the other carrot.
Adhere the stamped white rectangle to the center of the small Mango Melody rectangle.
Adhere the matted carrots rectangle to the front of the card in the center.
Unlock the Happy Labels Pick A Punch. Slide one short edge of the thin Granny Apple Green strip into the left side of the punch (the side of the punch with the small, rounded scallops) as far as it will go and get it centered. Punch. Repeat with the other end of the strip.
Mount the sentiment of choice from the Thanks A Bunch Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Garden Green Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the thin Granny Apple Green punched strip.
Pick out the skinny, small-scalloped edge, border die from the Basic Borders Dies. Put the long edge of the die on top of the horizontal, small, orange designer paper rectangle along one long edge on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is near the bottom edge. Run through the machine.
Adhere the cut bit of designer paper to the back of the sentiment punch strip so about 1/4" of the designer paper with the scallop edge shows and it is centered side to side.
Adhere the layered sentiment punch strip to the front of the card as shown using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Mount the solid large leaf image from the Thanks A Bunch Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Granny Apple Green Ink Pad. Stamp it twice on the long, skinny strip of white remembering to re-ink the stamp each time. Leave room between the images so you can cut them out.
Use Paper Snips Scissors to cut out the leaves by hand.
Lightly bend up the edges of the leaves.
Use a small amount of Stampin' Seal or Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen along the bottom edge of the leaves to adhere them to the tops of the carrots.
Cut a 10" piece of the Garden Green twine from the Three Twine Combo Pack.
Very carefully separate some of the strands of the twine from the others on one end. Then, very carefully pull the strands apart along the entire length.
Note: This makes the twine a little softer and less thick.
Tie a small bow in the center of one of the groups of twine strands. Trim the ends.
Use a small dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the twine bow to the front of the card at the base of the big leaves at the tops of the carrots.
Carefully pick out three little flower and leaf embellishments from the Loose Daisy Embellishments.
Put three tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen in a rough triangle just above the sentiment punch strip to the right of the carrots. Adhere the Loose Daisy Embellishments to the glue dots.
