METHOD:

Sentiment shaker
1. Blend purple and pink distress oxide inks onto a rectangular panel of white card, then layer onto a white blank. Spritz with a small amount of water. Die cut a stitched rectangular frame from white card, layer onto acetate and add foam tape around the edges. Sprinkle sequins in the centre of the acetate, then mount onto the card front.

2. Die cut ‘Merry Christmas’ from white and silver card, infill the white die-cut with the silver negative die-cuts and fix to the centre of the shaker element. Stamp a snowman onto white, colour in and trim. Secure to the right-hand side of the greeting. Finish with two die-cut snowflakes and silver gems.


Inked Snowy Card
1. Take a rectangular panel of white card and blend blue distress oxide inks from the top, applying less pressure as you move downwards. Leave to dry. Die cut two stitched hillside shapes from white and layer onto the bottom of the card, trimming to fit. 

2. Stamp a reindeer and snowman onto white, colour in and cut out. Secure to the bottom of the card with 3D foam pads. Die cut the ‘Merry Christmas’ die from white card and attach to the top of the card. Layer the panel onto a white blank and embellish with gems to finish.


Layered die-cuts
1. Layer a square panel of red star paper onto gold glitter card, then mount onto a white square blank. Mount a slightly smaller panel of poinsettia paper onto gold glitter card, then secure to the greeting. Wrap lace and ribbon around the middle, then tie into a bow.

2. Matt a rectangular panel of cream card onto gold glitter card and fix to the centre of the greeting. Die cut the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from gold glitter and red card. Infill the gold negative die-cuts inside the red sentiment, then glue to the card front. Finish with two gold sequins.
