  1. Happy Birthday - 1 Mount white card onto a pink blank, 12.5cm x 15.5cm. Die-cut five circles from white and patterned papers. Separate the whole circles from their thin outlines. Using the picture as a guide, adhere the circles to the front.

    2 Next, arrange the four outline circles around the edges so they breach the white layer. Die-cut ‘happy’ from pink and secure it onto a white circle, then mount onto the blank using foam pads. Stamp ‘birthday’ in grey onto the card, then trim into a strip and stick it below the first sentiment. Add sequins to finish.

  2. Hello - 1 Using a smaller section of yellow paper, position and hold hexagon dies in place using washi tape, then run it through your machine. Repeat until you have the pattern in the picture, then adhere
    the panel to a blank, 11.5cm x 16cm. Die-cut shapes from various patterned papers, then put the hexagons into their corresponding holes.

    2 Make three white hexagons in different sizes. Create two ‘hello’ sentiments from white and pink. Offset the white behind the pink, then stick together before mounting onto the largest hexagon. Add an orange strip of paper below the wording, then mount to the card using foam pads. Fix the other white hexagons below the largest, add an orange strip, then glue another to a background shape.
