Though I love trying out new dies and stamps, my favourite card is one I can use with any patterned papers I already have in my stash. That’s why the shaped Christmas cards (p8) are likely to be my most made project this year, in many different colours. You’ll enjoy many colours in our Northern Lights printables (p28) too, and you can download and print the bulk of the materials you need from our website as a free stash-booster. Download and print extra sets of this issue’s free alpine ski papers (p39) from there too, so there can be handmade cards for all without breaking the bank. Happy crafting!…

how to make a floating tree and frame

Separate the small dies from the tree die and ensure there are no sharp edges. Die cut a selection of snowflakes and stars from white card and ink edges in yellow, green and red. Cut a piece of the clear plastic sheet and remove the backing. With sticky side upwards, arrange your shapes all over the surface. Add some of the tiny cut outs to the stars’ centres. Encapsulate the die cuts with a larger piece of clear plastic. Trim away any edges. Place the tree die into the centre and cut it out. You now have a floating tree and a floating frame.…

all shapes and sizes

These shaped designs from Julie Gibbs are the mark of a classic Christmas: popping cards in the post, snuggly jumpers, a tree with all the trimmings and of course, jolly old St Nick. Your recipient only needs to take one look at these cards to get that festive feeling! This technique is a great way to add interest to your cards – they’ll certainly stand out among the festive line-up! Plus, with our handy templates they’re super easy to make, too. You could make a batch of the one design or the whole collection. Julie has used Crafter’s Companion Poinsettia Perfection papers but you could opt for any design you like, or use plain card and decorate with stamps and die cuts to put your own twist on these Christmas shapes.
