A single fold card has a round window cut in the front leaf revealing a sticker flower design on pink hologram paper. A larger half circle is cut away from the front to produce an elegant design. A happy birthday sticker completes the design.

- Sticker Flower

- Pink hologram paper
- Circle cutter

Measure 40 mm in from the right hand edge of the card and draw a vertical line in pencil. Measure the halfway point between the top and bottom of the card. Mark this on the vertical line - point A on the diagram.
Set the circle cutter to 36 mm radius and cut a half circle from the pencil line, around and back to the pencil line - dotted line B on the diagram.
Use a craft knife to cut dotted lines C and D and remove the surplus card.
Set the circle cutter to 30 mm radius and cut a full circle shown as dotted line E.
Rub out what is left of the pencil line.
Fold the pink card to form a greeting card 150 mm x 106 mm.
The flower sticker is actually a negative image (i.e. the pieces that are left after the first image has been removed).
To use the negative image cover the image to be removed with overlapping strips of low tack tape. Lay a piece of tape at right angles top and bottom of the first layer to hold the strips together.
Rub the tape down with the handle of some scissors or a coin, then carefully peel the tape back removing the image with the tape. Lay the image still stuck to the tape onto the pink hologram paper. Rub the image down gently and carefully remove the tape.
Set your circle cutter to a size slightly larger than the sticker image and cut out the circle of hologram paper with sticker in place.

Position the hologram paper inside the card using the cut out hole as a guide for position. The hologram paper has a self-adhesive backing.
Rule a decorative red line around the front of the card about 5 mm in from the edge - use the photograph at the top of the page as a guide.
Add a Happy Birthday sticker.
