You will need:
Green card blank
Blue, green, red & white card
Blue patterned paper
Paper crimper & white paper (or textured paper)
Flower-shaped sequins Alphabet stickers or rub-ons
Step 1 First, make the background. Trace around your closed card blank on to blue card, then cut down the card blank to look like a grassy slope. For the sky, cut out the blue shape and stick it to the back of the cut-down card blank.
Step 2 Use the templates to cut two toadstool shapes from white card. Crimp some white paper and give the toadstools textured stalks. Cut the toadstool tops again from red card and layer them on using sticky foam pads.
Step 3 Punch tiny white circles from card and stick them all over your toadstools!
Step 4 Stick the toadstools in place on your card, with the smaller toadstool on the front flap of the card, and the larger one on the back flap.
Step 5 Decorate your card with tufts of grass cut from green card, plus shaped sequins, a dotty border and your birthday greeting.
