Birthday wishes

1. Cut white card to 13cm x 26cm. Score down from the long edge, 6.5cm in from each end. Fold in to make a gatefold card. Blend blue ink on two panels of white card, 5.5cm x 12cm, then matt onto light blue. Add to the front sections of the greeting. Die cut two white fences. Blend green ink onto white cardstock and die cut two grass panels. Attach to the card.

2. Die cut several cloud outlines and fix to the blue section, trimming to fit. Die cut a rectangle from white cardstock, then a light blue frame so it fits directly over the white panel. Blend blue ink in the centre of the white rectangle.

3. Stamp two characters, colour in, then cut out and fix to the rectangle. Glue the rectangle centrally to the card, applying adhesive to the right panel only. Secure the frame on the left-hand side so it slots over perfectly. Stamp a black sentiment onto white card, then adhere bottomright.

Let’s celebrate

1. Create a portrait gatefold card and matt the front panels with light blue cardstock. Make two sky panels using a cloud stencil and blue ink, then adhere on top. Blend green inks onto white card, then die cut to create two hills. Fix to the bottom of the panels.

2. Stamp a character onto a white rectangle die-cut and colour in, adding dots to the balloon with a white pen. Fix the rectangle to the centre of the greeting, only applying adhesive to the left-hand side. Die cut a light blue frame so it fits over the white panel. Slot on top of the white panel, then apply glue to the right. Stamp a sentiment onto white card in black ink and adhere. Finish with a gem in each corner.
