My sis­ter lives in Aus­tralia and I’d like to send her a Christ­mas card with a sum­mery feel – help!

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Crafter’s Q&a - Paula Love­lock, Frome

Dorothy says: There are lots of ideas for a trop­i­cal Christ­mas such as Santa in Hawai­ian shorts or on a well-de­served hol­i­day. I love to build snow­men and with so many Aus­tralians head­ing for the beach to cel­e­brate, I imag­ine they might build a snow­man from sand in­stead! I sketched out this fun image and you can print out the digi stamp at card­makingand­pa­per­ I printed it with a laser printer and coloured with wa­ter­colour pen­cils, so try out colour­ing medi­ums so the ink doesn’t run or dis­solve. The de­sign is easy to cut out and can be backed with pat­terned pa­pers. I chose reds and greens, colour­ing the image to match, and couldn’t re­sist a play on words to add a bit of hu­mour with a ‘tra­di­tional’ greet­ing!

A per­fect card for Down Un­der!
