I experimented with the backgrounds I used and found the Distress inks and oxides gave me the best results.

  1. I applied the Tim Holtz oxides inks and Distress Inks directly to a heavy weight white card stock. I used a mix of several dark colours until I was satisfied with the result, I dropped water onto the card and mopped up the excess and left it to dry.
  2. I embossed the card, and pushed out the moon stars and windows that are cut and then backed the windows and moon with a yellow card and the stars with silver glitter card. I glittered the sleigh and reindeers after going over the outline in a Sharpie pen. I also glittered the roof tops and chimneys of the houses.
  3. I Matted onto the colour card with 3D foam giving a narrow border to the left and right but flush to the top and bottom. This is because there is just enough room to get it onto the card blank.
  4. I arranged and glued the gold border onto the underside of the topper and align it onto the card blank. I attached a sentiment and lastly a toning infill. Love the new dies from Hobbybase, they are so easy to use and cut brilliantly.
  5. This was such an easy card to make and can be used with any paper and embossing folders. So easy to mix and match.

"I live in the North East and have been paper crafting for over 30 years. I love die cutting, stamping and inking, alcohol colouring, water colouring, cd crafting, calligraphy and brush lettering to name but a few. Over the years I have supplied many shops and post offices with my cards and also taught crafting. I now prefer a quieter life and make cards for my regular customers, family and friends."

1. Cut a rectangle die the size of a 5 x 7 card front in white card stock.

2. Cut 3 more adding a smaller die each time to the centre to create 3 frames, again in white card stock.

3. Using blending tools, use Spiced Marmalade & Candies Apple Distress Oxide ink to add colour to all your die cut pieces.

4. Optional, spray water or spray into your hand and flick water over the 3 frame dies, blot with paper and leave to dry.

5. Stamp the Cactus stamps using a terracotta colour ink for the pots and shades of green ink for the plants, you will need to stamp the pots first and mask with a post it note, before stamping the plants. I used Memento die inks in Potters Clay for the pot and Cottage Ivy, Bamboo Leaves & Pistachio for the plants. I then fussy cut the images out.

6. Using foam tape, create your tunnel frame by starting with the smallest die cut frame and adding the next largest and so on to create a tunnel effect.

7. Add your cactus images to the card and fix the whole piece to a 5 x 7 card base.

"I currently live in Margate, Kent and a retired arts & design teacher. Several years ago I was introduced to die cutting and my interest in card making took hold. I'm currently a freelance demonstrator for all things paper craft and some mixed media, as well as working and running some challenge blogs. I love being able to create using dies and stamps and never tire of learning new techniques."

  1. Take the 5 x7 ribbon thread card blank and position with thread holes along bottom.  Cut a length of the ribbon slightly longer than the card and thread through the ribbon holes.  Add a little adhesive under the ribbon at the left and right sides to hold ribbon in place. Trim ends using scissors.
  2. Cut white card approx. 16cm x 9cm and mat onto green card approx. 17cm x 10cm using d/s tape.  Mat panel onto card front using d/s tape.
  3. Using the Stocking die, die cut 2 green stockings and 1 red stocking.  Die cut the shape again from silver card and use to paper piece the stockings (or leave as cut outs if you prefer)
  4. Cut 3 squares of white card approx. 4cm x 4cm and mat 2 onto red card squares (5cm) and 1 onto a green square.  Position squares as diamonds and adhere a stocking to each one.
  5. Adhere the 2 red squares to card front, 1 at left and 1 at right, a ruler placed across the front will help you line up the points of each square.  Finally add the green square using 3D foam pads, positon slightly lower and so it overlaps the red squares.
  6. To finish, decorate each stocking with a red or green sequin, top with a red or green adhesive gem and add a further gem to design on centre of stocking.
