1. Cover the front of the card with grid design paper and a coordinating 1.5cm patterned paper border across the top.

2. Cut a rectangle of striped paper to 4 x 14.5cm, cut at an angle at one end and stick to the left side of card.

3. To make the spin dial, stamp four chosen greetings around a circle of patterned paper 5cm (2”) in diameter.  Then to strengthen the dial stick to a 5cm (2”) circle of white card.

4. Cut a large flower from pink card and attach it to the back of the spin dial with a brad then to the card front with foam pads.

5. Cut a pointer for the dial from blue paper attaching it to the card near the top of the flower with foam pads.

6. Stamp the main greeting on a strip of white card cut to 8cm x 1.5cm and stick to the card front.  Finish by adding leaves cut from green card between the flower petals.
