1 Cut a 16.8cm square of blue card, then adhere to a 17cm square card blank. Trim a 16cm square in blue and white gingham patterned card and fix to the centre of the blue panel.
2 Using the lace square die, cut out in white card and glue onto the card blank. Die cut two large elephants; one in blue and the other in gingham. With a small pair of scissors, cut around the blue elephant’s ear and place on top of the gingham elephant with a 3D foam pad.
3 Die cut two balloons, one in blue and the other in gingham. Trim the gingham balloon’s strings off and place on top of the balloons. Cut out letters spelling ‘baby’ and stick onto the balloons. Attach the elephant to the card and the balloons slightly on top of the elephant’s trunk.
4 For the eyes, use black and white Nuvo drops. Make a small circle with the white gloss and add a small drop of black to the centre. Finally, with the ‘Congratulations’ die, cut out in blue before fixing to the card, beneath the elephant.
