Inspired by Tchaikovsky’s much-loved ballet, these beautiful foiled toppers, papers and stamps are sure to enchant your loved ones on Christmas morning!

Surprise your friends and family this Christmas with an adorable Arctic scene waiting to be revealed in a corner easel card. Simply unfold the base, slide the easel panel onto the undecorated panel and pop the easel topper up to create the scene. These cards are perfect for posting, as they fold flat with ease so can be popped into a square envelope, but when choosing the embellishments for your design, make sure you keep them to a minimum so that the card still folds flat – punched snowflakes and small gems would work perfectly! Designer Clare used Heffy Doodle’s Warm Hugs stamp and die set for her three makes, and paired them with her own creatively inked and heat-embossed papers, but you could easily use Christmas patterns from your own stash…

Happy birthday! I just wanted to congratulate you on your 200th edition – I have been with you since the first!

I am sure another couple will soon make their way to the pile from this great stamp set. Linda Winckles, Bradford Hayley says: We had a blast putting together the 200th issue, Linda – thank you for sticking with us from day one!

“I love hearing your crafting stories and seeing your wonderful cards, so please write in and share them with me!” Editor Stunning sunset I thought you might like to see the three cards I made using the gorgeous Summer Meadow stamp set that came with Cardmaking & Papercraft issue 198. One of my favourite techniques is currently stamping silhouettes onto ink-blended sunset backgrounds and when I saw the wildflower stamp set I knew it’d be perfect. To create the backgrounds, I blended blue, purple, pink, orange and yellow inks to create the ombré effects. I hope my silhouette cards inspire other readers. Beccy Holiday, Ashford Hayley says: We’re thrilled to see what you’ve made with the Summer Meadow stamp set, Beccy, the silhouettes and backgrounds are such a creative use of the cover gift. Your…
