Soft greys and lilacs are the theme for this one - lovely.

For this one print:-

The Percy Lambert's Talbot motifs onto 250gsm Print Perfect card (or similar)
The Percy Lambert's Talbot background onto 90, 120 or 160gsm Print Perfect paper (or similar)
The GC Assorted Miniatures sheet onto white printer paper

To make the card, stick a 20 x 14cm piece of the background onto a piece of A5 silver metallic card using double-sided tape.  I've used 160gsm paper to print the background onto, but you could also use a lighter paper if you prefer.

Cut out one of the 7.5cm wide motifs and stick it onto a larger piece of silver metallic card with double-sided tape before trimming around with a craft knife and ruler to leave a small border.  Repeat this method with your chosen greeting.

Cut out one of the mini newspapers and a map from the assorted miniatures sheet. 

To make the newspaper, fold up the piece and use several bits of double-sided tape inside to keep it closed. Fold the newspaper in two and fasten with another piece of double-sided tape.  I've just used one sheet to make up the paper but if you want a slightly thicker one, cut out another one and fold them together.

For the speedometer (or compass), I've used 16mm clear dome stickers here (from Ebay).  Stick them to the appropriate sized piece on the assorted miniatures sheet, then trim round with small scissors.  There are other sized dials on the sheet in case you happen to have different sized dome stickers.

To assemble the card, arrange the items on the card blank until you're happy with the arrangement.  Add the picture with sticky pads and the newspaper, map and speedo/compass with double-sided tape.
