1 Mix ½ tbsp of white and a lit­tle dark green acrylic paint into the gloss medium to make a pale green paste. Spread out and add lines of white and red acrylic paint. Draw a wide clay mod­el­ling tool al­ter­na­tively up and down to cre­ate the curved lin­ear ef­fect. Print the pa­per as be­fore. 2 Use the re­main­ing paste and smooth out. Add dark green and white in lines and dots of red acrylic paint. Draw the wide tool down through the paint re­peat­ing all the way across. To cre­ate the feather ef­fect, draw the tool be­tween the pre­vi­ous lines in the op­po­site di­rec­tion. Print the pa­per. Make a third pa­per. 3 Die-cut three baubles in dif­fer­ent sizes. Move the die around to find the best sec­tion of pat­tern be­fore cut­ting. At­tach to 140mm square base as shown. Cut bauble hang­ers and glue in place. 4 Stamp a sen­ti­ment in dark green. Stamp red snowflakes and add dots of gold. Sew a line of metal­lic thread stitch­ing from the top of the card down to each bauble hanger and back again. Trim neatly to fin­ish.
