Cel­e­brate the fes­tive sea­son with Hazel’s glit­ter­ing de­signs. This month, she’s used Xcut’s new Nutcracker and Bauble die sets. With three stoic nut­crack­ers and nu­mer­ous bauble shapes, it’ll be a breeze to make gor­geous Christ­mas cards like these us­ing just one sketch.

At­tach a die-cut image in the cen­tre and add to the base us­ing sticky fix­ers. Cut out a sen­ti­ment and layer onto ma­roon card. At­tach to the side of the die-cut panel us­ing sticky fix­ers. At­tach gems to the base card as shown, to fin­ish.
