Take a strip of purple card, 12cm x 23cm, then make two 6cm horizontal cuts 7cm and 9cm away from the right edge and 4cm up. Score six lines vertically to make three 4cm squares, which act as 'steps'.

Stencil yellow card, 10.5cm square, and shape the right side to follow the direction of the steps on the purple blank, then matt. Stamp or write 'Just a note' onto yellow, die-cut into a circle and ink the edges. Mount to the topright of the blank using foam pads

Fix quilled butterflies onto the blank to finish.
