1 Start with a 13.5x26.4cm piece of white card then score and fold the two side pan­els at 6.6cm from each edge. Trim the top off the two side pan­els, so they are 10cm tall. 2 Die-cut the Flo­ral Dance bor­der into the top of the cen­tral panel. Cre­ate a curved sec­tion at the top of each side panel, from the folded edge to 7.5cm at the outer edge. 3 Cover all three in­side pan­els with mint green ging­ham pa­per and the outer two pan­els with pink pa­per, leav­ing small white bor­ders, and ink­ing and stitch­ing the edges. 4 Cut a 2x28cm strip of ging­ham pa­per, then fold and glue the ends to make a band, to fit around the card – join to­gether two lengths of pa­per, if needed. Add a lay­ered die-cut flower to the band. 5 Add a printed greet­ing in­side a kraft card scal­loped-rec­tan­gle frame and at­tach, as shown. Fin­ish with pearls and but­ter­flies.
