1Create the card base by creating a filled background in a desktop publishing package, then importing black silhouettes on top of the coloured fill.
2 Print onto glossy photo paper and trim, then matt with black and silver cardstock, leaving a narrow border each time.
3 Create a black & silver star-patterned wrap from the Rock Star paper pad and fix around the 8″-square card blank. Glue the silhouette mount to the centre.
4 Follow the steps below to construct the bond character costume. Create shoes, following the instructions in the Wild Boys pack.
5 To add the finishing touches, cut a triangle of card and fold to look like a handkerchief. Fix a small black rectangle to the bottom to look like a top pocket, and affix the jacket with a 3D foam pad.
6 Assemble the character and fold the hand up to look like the character is holding the paper rose.
7 Arrange a number of the die-cut playing cards onto the silhouette mount, and add the bond style character to one side using 3D foam pads.
Create your own Mr Bond!
1Draw around the body shape using a ruler. Draw a line across the base of the round torso to create a jacket and trousers.
2 On a small piece of white cardstock, cut a rectangle and draw around the neck area. Draw a line across the top and the bottom.
3 Cut the shapes out and draw a line down the centre of the trousers. Mark approximately 3mm either side of the line and join up to create an elongated triangle.
4 Draw a similar line two-thirds of the way down the middle of the torso piece, and cut out. Fold back either side to form lapels and shape. Repeat this process for the white winged collar piece.
5 Place the pieces on a prepared body shape and cut a small bow tie to place in the collar.
6 Draw around the arm on a skin-toned piece of card. Repeat on a piece of black card and cut off the hand shape, fix on top of the arm and finish with a gemstone cufflink.
