Editor Elaine has some top tips when designing your Christmas card. "Sketch out your ideas before diving in, and if you're planning a moving card, check the mechanism works by making a paper mock-up first. Think vibrant and bold: avoid dark colours or large expanses of white. We need to be able to show off your card in one photo, so details inside the card and underneath flaps may not be visible".

2. Dream about winning first prize
