1. Trim white card to 12.5cm square. Towards the bottom, apply brown distress oxide inks through a hilly stencil. Blend the top half with purple distress oxide inks. Die cut an 8.5cm circle from white and blend with brown and purple distress oxide inks.

2. Die cut a 6.5cm circle, blend the edges with orange distress oxide ink, then stamp a sentiment in grey. Cut thick white card to 4cm x 21cm. Score down from the long side at 5cm and 6cm, then fold inwards. Adhere the smaller circle to the 5cm section of the strip, and the larger circle to the 1cm section.

3. Snip a 4.5cm vertical slot through the inked panel, then insert the end of the strip through it. Mount onto a white blank, pulling the strip through. Stick the right edge of the smaller circle down onto the card front. Stamp the end of the strip with arrows in brown ink, trimming any excess.

4. Stamp motifs onto white card, then colour in with marker pens. Die cut using the coordinating dies. Adhere a boulder and an axe to the inner circle, and a cave woman and house onto the front circle. Fix several motifs along the bottom. Die cut ‘Hooray’ from white card, then mount onto the front circle to complete.
