instructions
  1. Bunting Greeting - 1 Matt teal card onto the front of a side-opening blank, 10.5cm x 15cm. Shade white, 9cm x 10cm, with blue chalk to create a sky, then matt onto orange card. Attach this panel to the front. Download and print a beach hut template, then colour with ProMarkers and attach to the sky using 3-D pads.

    2 Doodle two birds in the sky above the huts. Punch a scallop border from white and orange cards, then layer one on top of the other and bend slightly. Attach to the top of the card, using 3-D foam pads behind each scallop. Add a length of twine along the top edge.

  2. Staggered Beach Huts - 1 Matt teal card onto white, 15cm square. Trim white card, 13.75cm square, then cut into a cloud shape and wipe blue chalk along the top. Attach kraft, 5.5cm x 13.75cm, to the bottom and fix to a blank.

    2 Download and print three beach hut motifs, then colour with ProMarkers. Attach to the card with 3-D foam pads.

    3 Punch two stars and ink the edges, then emboss the centres to give dimension and adhere using 3-D foam squares. Doodle two birds in the sky to finish.

  3. Landscape Twine Design - 1 Emboss teal card, 12cm x 17cm, then cross bakers twine around it, crossing it in the middle and securing at the back. Matt onto a blank, 12.5cm x 17.5cm. Shade white card with chalk, 9.75cm x
    11.25cm, then punch a scallop border.

    2 Matt onto a slightly bigger piece of scallop-edged orange card. Layer a matching layer of kraft on top, leaving a little of the other borders showing. Download and print a beach hut motif, then colour with ProMarkers.

    3 Attach to the card using 3-D foam pads, then punch out two stars from kraft card and work the edges with a brown ink-pad. Emboss the centres to give dimension, then adhere to the card front, on the scallop borders. To complete, sketch two birds in the sky.
