Step 1;

Cut a piece of white card with the cloud backdrop die and trim to 10cm square. Layer this onto a piece of patterned paper and stick to the front of an 11cm square card base.

Step 2;

Cut a 10 x 2.5 cm strip of patterned paper and another using the scalloped border die. Stick along the bottom of the card and then add the sentiment stamped onto white card and cut into a banner.

Step 3;

Stamp and colour the elephant then fussy cut around the outside edge. It’s easier to cut away the balloon at this stage.

Step 4;

Stick the elephant to the card adding some foam pads or silicone glue in the centre to give dimension. Stamp the balloon onto coloured card and cut out. Stick this in place and add the string with a fine line black pen. Finish with a die cut sun and some flowers.
