Scandi bless­ings

I love the Scandi look for Christ­mas but I’ve never given it a go. Where should I start? Anne Cooke, Belfast

Becky: Scandi style has been a pop­u­lar trend in re­cent years, with its bold bright colours matched with white, sim­ple stylised shapes and naïve pat­terns. I de­signed this card which en­com­passes all of these us­ing the latest Sim­ply Cre­ative 12x12 ‘Jolly Christ­mas’ paper pack. I used the red polka dot paper for the back­drop of the card. After adding blue and white bor­ders to­wards the base, cut nest­ing tri­an­gles (I used a nest­ing bunting die to keep this sim­ple) to rep­re­sent Christ­mas trees and ar­range these above the border. I then dec­o­rated the trees with punched flow­ers and yel­low ad­he­sive gems. I fin­ished the card with a blue fish­tail panel in the top left and com­pleted the de­sign with a kraft card greet­ing and sim­ple glit­tered stars.
