Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Knowhow Technique -

1 Start with a green paint/ medium mix (if you have one left over from a pre­vi­ous pa­per you can re­use it). Smooth out then draw green lines of acrylic paint out from the cen­tre.

2 With white acrylic paint, draw white lines in a spi­ral out from the cen­tre of the gel plate. Draw a nar­row head clay mould­ing tool out from the mid­dle and re­peat on each dark green line to cre­ate a spi­der web ef­fect. Use the tool to add fur­ther de­tail to the pat­tern if re­quired. Print as be­fore and leave to dry.

3 Cut out the large star and about 10 small stars from a va­ri­ety of pa­pers you have printed. At­tach the large star to a 130mm square base. Add the smaller stars as shown. Stitch through the small stars twice with a length of metal­lic thread.

Stamp the sen­ti­ment in dark green and em­boss with clear pow­der. Stamp red snowflakes as shown and add dots in gold. At­tach a red star in the mid­dle of the large star, to fin­ish.

Draw a spi­ral pat­tern for this Christ­mas star
