How to...Add a ‘floating’ character
Easily add interest with a little die cutting and layering
Cover the front of an A5 card blank with spotty paper from the Frosty Christmas pack. You can use double-sided tape to quickly and easily secure the paper in place. 2
Trim a piece of white card to measure 19x14cm then cover it with tree-patterned paper from the Frosty Christmas pack. Again, use double-sided tape to secure the paper in place. 3
Use a circle die to shape the bottom-right corner of the panel from step 2. Use washi tape to hold the die in place before running it through your machine. Add acetate to the back of the panel. 4
Wrap a length of white ribbon around the die-cut panel, near the top, securing it in place on the reverse. You can now leave this panel to one side. 5
Print out the image of the bunny with presents, from the Furry Folk 1 stamp set. Colour in the design then fussy cut it, keeping some white card at the bottom, to ground the image. 6
Use sticky foam pads to stick the bunny image onto the acetate section of the panel created in step 4. The foam pads add dimension as well as being an easy way to adhere to acetate.
Stick the panel from step 6 onto your card front, using sticky foam pads. To complete your card, add a ribbon bow topped with printed greeting tags and a small, heart-shaped button.
Top tip Use a double layer of foam pads when attaching images to acetate, this will help to create the ‘floating’ effect
