    Cut various strips of paper to 1.5cm wide
    Add 3 strips of paper to the card panel as shown in diagram, creating 4 triangle areas on the card
    Use the remaining paper to fill in each area - (leaving a small gap between each piece is optional)
    Trim off any overhang and add the panel to the card front
    Stamp the 'Happy Birthday senitment onto white card, carefully trim around the border and add to the bottom RH side of the card using foam pads

Kite shaped Explosion Card

Hi everyone,

Today I have the measurements and instructions to make this cute Kite shaped Explosion Card that I've shared over on the main blog today 😊


Trim a piece of A4 white card to 12cm tall (leaving the length)

Score, Fold & Cut as per the diagram shown above in the pictures

Trim 2 pieces of paper to 5.5cm x 9cm & 2 pieces to 5.5cm x 5.5cm - trim off diagonally to fit shape and add to the front of the card

Trim 2 pieces of paper to 5.5cm x 5.5cm, trim diagonally to fit and add to inside of the card

Tape a piece of twine to the inside back of the card at the bottom

Trim a piece of paper to fit the inside of the card shape (I did mine just by lining the paper up and measuring that way - not actual measurements)

Stamp the sentiment, Die cut and add to the card - decorate with a selection of flowers

Tie ribbon bows around the twine kite tail to finish
