1 Ink the edges of a 15cm square blank in dark green. Trim script patterned paper to a 13.5cm square, matt onto black card and adhere to the blank. Stamp the Eiffel Tower, three passport stamps, flowers and leaves onto white in black ink.
2 Use watercolours to add colour to the motifs and fussy cut them once they are dry. Stamp a lace ribbon onto pink patterned paper, trim and adhere across the card.
3 Die cut a scalloped circle from white and ink the edges in dark green, then fix to the bottom-right of the greeting using 3D foam pads. Place the Eiffel Tower on top of this and stamp a sentiment next to it.
4 Arrange the flowers and leaves into two flourishes and attach one to each corner of the card. Use 3D foam pads to adhere some of the flowers to create dimension.
5 Stamp the ‘Bon Voyage’ sentiment onto white, trim to size and layer onto black card. Fix to the top-right of the greeting with 3D foam pads and add the passport stamp motifs to finish.
