YOU WILL NEED:
Dies: ovals, circles, heart
1. Place 10.5cm x 15cm of blue card in a landscape position and draw a horizontal line across the centre. Draw a vertical line in the centre from the top to the horizontal line. Beneath the horizontal line, draw a vertical line at 3cm in from each edge.
2. Take a large circle die and secure on the bottom half of the card to create a bowl shape. Only place the area that needs cutting between the plates and pass through a die-cutting machine. Trim off the excess from around the base of the circle.
3. Using a large oval die, cut a curved shape from blue and a smaller curved shape from cream. Adhere them together and add to the top of the bowl shape. Trim a spoon handle from silver card and secure in place. Embellish the bowl with a pink heart.
4. Add striped paper to the remaining areas of the card. Print out a sentiment onto teal card and secure to the front using 3D foam pads to stabilise the design.
