1 Take an 18cm square tent-folding kraft blank. Take a 15cm square of blue card and a 16cm square of orange card. Distress the edges of both using a pair of scissors, then glue together and fix to the blank.

2 Trim an 11cm square of orange card and a 10.5cm square of kraft card. Distress all of the edges with scissors, then glue together. Fix 3D foam pads to the back of the panel and adhere to the card front.

3 Stamp the image onto 10.5cm of white card using black ink. Colour the stamped image with marker pens. To make the characters stand out, shade around them with a pencil lightly. Stamp a sentiment above in blue ink.

4 Wrap gingham ribbon around the bottom of the stamped card, tying into a bow in the centre. Fix a small flower button in the centre. Attach the finished panel to the card front.
