- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Cherry Cobbler cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White was sponged across the top with Pool Party Ink and stamped with the little flurries in Trees For Sale stamp set with Pool Party Ink. The background was colored with Pool Party using a Blending Brush. The sun was sponged with So Saffron Ink towards the middle.
- The greeting from Christmas Barn stamp set was stamped with Evening Evergreen Ink towards the bottom.
- The barn was stamped with Memento Black Ink and mostly colored with Real Red Combo Stampin’ Blends, leaving a few white areas. The Dark Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends were applied over the Real Red to darken the color all over. The roof and trim was colored with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends and the windows with Light So Saffron Blends. The barn was popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The silo was cut with the Barn Dies from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and sponged with Gray Granite Ink to darken. It was added beside the barn.
- Three trees and the wreath were stamped with Evening Evergreen Ink and colored with Light Soft Succulent and SU 300 Stampin’ Blends. They were cut with the Barn Dies and the trees added to the background. The wreath was added to the barn.
