Yes, I really am going to mention Christmas! If you’ve been crafting for years you probably always promise yourself that you’ll start your Christmas cards earlier the following year. Or is that just me?
Maybe you are currently furloughed and have just discovered crafts to pass the time. Yay! You’ve come to the right place to learn how to make gorgeous cards without the stress.

I’m using Hunkydory Moonstone dies today. You’ll find the supply list a little further down.
There are lots of options with this die set and they all cut beautifully.
I kept it simple but added a couple of extra touches which are easy to do.
Prepare card base by scoring A4 card at 14.9cm on the long side.
Cut card mat at 20cmx13.9cm
Add a small amount of Nuvo Mousse to a spritzer bottle and fill bottle with water. Light mist the card mat and add a little more to some areas. Leave to dry or gently dry with a heat tool.
Die cut the tag shapes from silver and gold. The gold snowflake on the silver tag is from the bottom right tag on the sheet.
Glue the tags and lay them on your card (without sticking down) to work out where you would like them. This will help you get the glittery lines in the right place.
Using a ruler draw 3 lines (one at a time) with quickie glue pen and add glitter.
Glue the top and bottom tags on and attach the middle one with foam pads.
The sentiment is from the Christmas Cracker die set and I cut that out of silver and gold. Glue them slightly off to create a shadow.
Finish off with a bow and jewel on each tag.
