The weather outside is frightful, but the die-cuts are so delightful…
Die cutting; Christmas would be lost without it. It’s one of the speediest ways to add intricacy to your makes, and Keren Baker has made astounding use of the technique here, as she tends to do. We love this greeting as much for what it evokes as how it looks; crackling fireplaces, the smell of a fresh Christmas tree, even a cheeky stolen kiss under the mistletoe. Fab!

Marker pen, grey
Nuvo drops, green
Layer blue card onto a white side-folding blank, 14.5cm x 20.5cm. Matt a slightly smaller panel of red card on top. Mark the centre of a sheet of white paper and divide into three. Die cut six times with the inner Mistletoe Doily.
Die cut two more doily shapes from green, trim off the berries and adhere on top of the two central doilies. Die cut the outer image of a doily and discard everything apart from a few berries. Attach to a white circle, then fix to a large blue circle with 3D foam pads.
Die cut a ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from red, tie baker’s twine around berry embellishments and secure to the circle, before adding to the panel. Glue the white panel to the card front. Mark grey dots on the berries and green drops on the mistletoe leaves to complete.
