  1. Penguin Card - 1 Cut white card, 10.5cm x 29cm, and fold widthways. Position so the fold line is at the top and glue blue chevron paper, 10cm x 14cm, onto the front.

    2 Mount a green polka dot paper, 4cm x 8.5cm, onto a strip of white card, 4.5cm x 9cm. Attach blue ribbon across this panel and secure the ends at the back. Affix this strip to the bottom of the main card, leaving a small border around the edge.

    3 Die-cut white card using the second-largest Double Stitched Rectangle die, measuring, 7cm x 10cm. Cut beige paper using the end of the same die and trim one side into a hill shape. Use the Sunny Skies die to cut a stitched sun from yellow card. Glue the hill and sun onto the stitched white panel and trim the border.

    4 Stamp the penguin, tree, flower and cocktail onto white card. Tint each image using Copic markers and cut out with the co-ordinating die. Arrange on the stitched panel and affix with foam pads, before attaching the panel to the main card.

    5 Tie a blue bow, attach a rhinestone to the centre and glue onto the left side of the ribbon border. Stamp Cheers onto blue, attach to main card with foam pads and add a rhinestone to each side to finish.
