Neon Noël

Quick Cards Magazine - - Quick Fixes -

I’m hop­ing to go for a funky neon theme for my Christ­mas cards this year. What sort of prod­ucts could I use to achieve the look? So­phie Hawes, Pre­ston

Becky: Neon colours are re­ally pop­u­lar for fes­tive makes this year. First, stick to a pal­ette of two or three colours. You should also con­sider the ef­fect you want to achieve. To make the colours re­ally stand out, team with dark back­grounds – black will give the ul­ti­mate pop. For a softer touch, use a white back­ground. I think it’s best to keep the de­sign sim­ple – try tri­an­gles for trees, cir­cles for baubles as well as stars and snowflakes. Use a bold sim­ple font for your words and sen­ti­ments, such as the XCut Wed­ding Al­pha­bet and Num­bers A5 die set ( www.therange.

co.uk), which you can use on your cards all year round.

Bold let­ter­ing gives a sharp fin­ish to your neon cards
