instructions
  1. Cosy Christmas - 1 Copy the templates to create two pink mittens, two pale aqua blue cuffs and two peppermint trees. Colour the edges of each using Rich Cocoa ink. Once dry, assemble the mittens.

    2 Round the corners of cream card, 10cm x 13cm, and pale aqua card, 3cm x 13cm, then ink the edges. Matt onto a 13.5cm square blank with the cream pane at the top and the pale aqua one underneath. Round the corners of the blank.

    3 Stick the mittens onto chocolate brown card and trim, then fix a tree to each. Attach a short length of green and white twine between the two, securing on the reverse, then adhere to the cream section using 3-D foam pads. Create a sentiment from brown lettering and add to the bottom panel, then place a gem to the top of each tree.

  2. Warm Wishes - 1 Cut out a pale aqua hot cocoa mug, a mug inner in mid aqua, a snowflake in pale pink, and steam in cream using the templates. Ink the edges of each in Rich Cocoa, then assemble them directly onto chocolate brown card and trim.

    2 Round the top right corner of a white A6 blank. Cut a slightly smaller section of pale pink card, round the top right corner, ink the edges and attach to the card front.

    3 Mount the mug onto the blank using foam pads, then create a sentiment using brown lettering at the top right of the card. Tie lengths of brown and pale pink twine around the spine, then add a few gems to finish.
