How to…Layer an aperture
Combine a scalloped card base with a circular aperture, for a wonderfully coordinated design
1 Attach a 12.5x12.5cm piece of ‘Merry Christmas’ patterned paper onto a slightly larger scalloped card blank.
2 Trim a piece of white card to 12.5x12.5cm then cover it with snowflake-patterned paper. Die cut a circle in the centre of this piece, add acetate to the back, then adhere it to the card base, using sticky foam pads. 3 Print, colour and fussy cut the juggling bear image, from the Furry Folk 1 stamp set, then add sticky foam pads to the back.
4 Stamp a Christmas greeting onto a strip of patterned paper, trim the right-hand side of the strip into a pennant, then use sticky foam pads to adhere the banner to the acetate. Add the bear image over the left-hand side of the banner, as shown.
5 Create the poinsettias and leaves using dies, patterned paper, card, vellum and pearls then add them to the card front.
