Here's how....

  1. Fold a piece of white card in half to form your basic greetings card.

  2. If you have some fancy cut scissors, give the card a decorative (wavy) edge and cut round a rectangular piece of blue corrugated card to make a mount for your design. Glue the mount in place on the front of your card.

  3. Take a pre-cut foam dolphin shape and glue in place over the corrugated mount. Alternatively, draw and cut out your own design from scraps of foam or card or cut pictures from an old magazine.

  4. Add your message and any other decorations as required.
