1 Cover the front of a 13.5x13.5cm card with wood-ef­fect pa­per. Cut a 10x10cm aper­ture in the cen­tre. Cover the in­side of the card with blue pat­terned pa­per. 2 Trim con­trast­ing wood-ef­fect pa­per to 11.5x11.5cm. Cut a 10x10cm aper­ture in the cen­tre and add it to the front of the card, us­ing sticky foam pads, to frame the main aper­ture. 3 Cut white card to 13.5x15cm. Score the card at 1.5cm, 4.5cm, 7.5cm, 10.5cm and 13.5cm. Moun­tain and val­ley fold along the score lines, to cre­ate a con­certina with tabs at each end. 4 Die-cut and ad­here a cream fence and grass strips to the con­certina step­per pan­els, as shown. Group and at­tach a rabbit die-cut and flower heads to the front of the panel. 5 Use a wood-ef­fect tag as a shed, with a tri­an­gle for a roof and a rec­tan­gle for a door, in con­trast wood-ef­fect pa­pers. Glue punched shapes to the roof and at­tach the shed to the panel, as shown. 6 Add the con­certina step­per panel to the card base made in step 1, stick­ing the front tab to the bot­tom in­side front of the card blank and the back tab to the bot­tom in­side back of the card.

7 At­tach die-cut birds on a wire be­tween the shed and aper­ture frame. Fi­nally, add a hot air bal­loon, a die-cut greet­ing on the frame, and a hand­writ­ten sign on the shed door.
