My nine-year-old daugh­ter is new to card mak­ing and was given lots of glit­ter and seed beads for her birth­day. Can you sug­gest a card for us to make to­gether? Holly Jones, Ed­in­burgh

Vicky: This sim­ple card de­sign will in­tro­duce your daugh­ter to the ba­sic el­e­ments of card mak­ing, Holly. Start by cov­er­ing a stan­dard A6 card blank with a piece of dark blue card and mount it with some spotty pa­per, leav­ing a nar­row bor­der on the two long sides. Next, cut a small rec­tan­gle of pink pa­per for the vase and stick it at the cen­tre of the bot­tom edge with foam pads. Stick three nar­row strips of green pa­per stems be­hind the top edge of the vase and add some fussy-cut leaves. For the flow­ers, punch dif­fer­ent-sized cir­cles of papers in var­i­ous pat­terns and then layer and stick three pieces to­gether for each flower. Add a stamped sen­ti­ment to the base of the vase, to fin­ish.

Vicky’s de­sign is per­fect for us­ing up your scraps of pat­terned pa­per Sswuepeetr
