What you need...

  • Dies: circles, bauble topper, star, window frame, snowflakes, joy, scallop-edged circle, star
  • Acetate
  • Sequins: pink, silver
  • Ribbon, pink
  • Scissors, decorative edged
  • Star-shaped cookie cutters, various sizes
  1. Pink Joy - 1 Take an A6 blank and cover inside right with patterned paper. Trim the card's front to 3cm wide and add pink glitter card to this section. Trim a blue scalloped strip and fix behind the pink border.

    2 Add an acetate panel, also securing neatly behind the pink panel. Attach ribbon vertically to the right edge, securing on inside with double-sided tape. Die-cut 'joy' from pink and emboss twice with clear powder. Glue to the acetate and add white glitter snowflakes to complete.

  2. Bauble Shaker - 1 Take a top-folding card, 11.5cm square, and cover with green dot paper. Trim pink card, slightly smaller and die-cut a circle from the centre. Fix acetate to the back of the pink panel using double-sided tape close to the circle's edge.

    2 Trim two board squares, 10.5cm, and die-cut slightly larger circles from the centres. Join together and fix on top of acetate. Pop a few sequins in the back of the sphere and add double-sided tape around the edges. Seal with a panel of dot patterned paper.

    3 Fix the shaker panel to the centre of the card. Die-cut a bauble top from glitter card and stick in place. Add sticker sentiment to finish.

  3. Just Joy - 1 Cover an A6 top-folding blank with deep red card. Add patterned paper panels and round the corners on the top panel. Conceal join with pink ribbon and secure the ends on the inside with double-sided tape.

    2 Layer a pink circle onto a red scalloped edged circle. Attach a white glitter die-cut sentiment to the centre, then position to the right of the card using foam pads.

  4. Window Ways - 1 Cover an A6, top-folding blank with blue card. Die-cut a window frame from white, place on the front and mark the outer edges of the panes. Cut an aperture from the front and stick the frame in place. Add acetate behind the opening, then cover the inside with pink card.

    2 Add a Christmas tree sticker centrally to the pink panel and a yellow glitter star to the top. Embellish with tiny die-cut snowflakes and a sentiment sticker.

  5. Star Sign - 1 Take a side folding 1 1.5cm square blank and cover the front with blue card. Layer dot patterned paper over the blue and die-cut a circle from the centre.

    2 Die-cut two large stars from yellow glitter card and stick together. Pierce tiny holes in the top of the star and above the circle. Join using a tiny silver slip ring. Add sticker sentiment to bottom right to finish.
