3. Once you are hapy with how they look, go over the pencil outline with a black fine line pen. Rub out any pencil marks, then shade in with pink colouring pencil.

4. Pick up the ‘I’ letter stamp, press it into the ink pad then onto a scrap piece of paper first to practice. Once you are happy with the amount of pressure the stamp needs, start stamping ‘I LOOK UP TO YOU’ just below the baby flamingo. And stamping ‘MUM’ just above.

5. Use the black fine line pen to draw three dots after ‘MUM’ and a small heart at the end of the message.

2. Then cut out the word ‘MUMMY’ (or mum if you prefer!) from the gold foil alphabet thick-ers. Carefully peel off the backs of the stickers and secure in place. It’s best to start with MUMMY first, so you can line it up roughly in the middle.

3. Start layering up the white paper blossoms, one on top of each other. Then glue two layered flowers one in either corner of the message.
