Combine See D's stamps and the wide variety of colours of Whispers inks to give a perfect result every time.
Stamp the floral border across the card at an angle as indicated on the photo stamp the Happy Birthday border below. Use the scissors to trim the front of the card just above the stamped image.
Open you card and stamp the borders again at the same angle, continuing the borders towards the top right hand corner. Again trim above the borders.
Take a second card and glue inside the front of the first creating a concertina effect. Trim the central portion to match the section it overlaps.
Open up the card and continue the borders diaganally downwards at the same angle. (this will be the front of the card.) Trim along the top of the borders.
Close up the card and stamp another borders along the bottom of the card.
Stamp the message onto some spare white card. Trim and layer onto blue card. Stick the layered message at the bottom of your card. Add an adhesive stone in each corner of the message. Add further adhesive stones to the other two sections of the card.

Heat usng the Heat tool being careful to use tweezers to hold the shape to stop your fingers being burnt. Use the brads provided to attach the shapes to your card.
