1 Cover the card front with red cardstock and layer with a slightly smaller panel of word-patterned paper, ensuring you have the words in the centre.
2 Punch three stars from gold glitter paper and affix as shown, mounting one in place using 3D foam pads.
3 From another piece of the word-patterned paper, cut out the words ‘Ho! Ho! Ho!’ and ‘Merry Christmas’, draw around the borders with a white marker and adhere to the card front using 3D foam pads
4 Draw a white border around the outside of the patterned panel on the card front using a white marker. Ink the edges of the card front with a gold metallic inkpad.
Highlighting the raised words in white makes them pop!
