Place the largest triangle bunting die over the hinge of an A6, top-fold card blank and cut. Die cut another triangle from red check paper and use this to cover the card front. Die cut a slightly smaller triangle from blue patterned paper then layer this on top of the red paper.
Die cut a cream, patterned sail, mount it onto card, for strength, then use sticky foam pads to attach it so it overlaps the right-hand side of the sail made in step 1. Use washi tape and strips of patterned paper to add striped detail at the base of the sail. Mount a silver glittered ‘1’ onto layered circles and arrange overlapping the stripes, then stick the ‘no’ letters above.
Place a bamboo skewer ‘mast’ down the centre of the sails and add layered pennants to the top. Die cut an 11.5cm-wide circle from white card, fold it in half then cover one half with wood-effect paper, to create the ‘hull’. Use sticky foam pads to attach the hull at the base of the sails then add patterned papers and the word ‘dad’.
Add a scalloped edge to two panels of aqua card and layer up at the base of the hull. Add another semi-circle to the back panel of the card, so it stands up.
