Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Know How Technique -

1 Score lines at 10mm and 140mm on 150x65mm and 150x45mm strips of white card. Trim away the cor­ners on one end of each strip. Fold the scored lines on the op­po­site ends to cre­ate tabs. Glue the tabs of each strip to op­po­site sides at the bot­tom of a 150mm square white base card.

2 At­tach a 145mm square of pat­terned pa­per to the front of the base. Cover the two strips with pat­terned pa­pers. Gen­tly bend the right strip across so that the end is 40mm from the left-hand side of the base and mark the po­si­tion of the tab. Re­peat for the left strip on the op­po­site side. Cut slits on the marked lines and slot the tabs of each strip into the slits.

3 Die-cut sleigh from white card and at­tach to top of left strip. Die-cut the roof top from white card and at­tach to the top of the right strip. Die-cut the sen­ti­ment from white card and add to the right strip.

4 Die-cut the moon and five clouds from white card and at­tach to the top of the base. Ap­ply clear glit­ter glue to the die-cut clouds and moon. At­tach sil­ver star gems to the top of the base. Add red and gold gems as shown to fin­ish.

Ap­ply clear glit­ter glue for touches of snowy sparkle
