1. Measure a central point on the front of the card and mark with a faint pencil dot as a guideline for the stamp. Use the stamp and black ink to stamp the Christmas message. Allow to dry for a couple of minutes before continuing to avoid smudging the ink.

Top Tip! When using stamps and ink, if possible, always do this element of the card making first as it is the most likely (but hopefully not!) process to go wrong. Test the stamp out first on a spare piece of paper. I use a piece of kitchen roll to wipe away any excess ink from the edges of the stamp – so that only the design is covered with ink – before I stamp on to the actual card. 

2. Cut a strip of ribbon and use two strips of narrow double sided tape to stick it to the card.

3. Arrange felt holly toppers around the stamped message. Before sticking them in place, position the poinsettia toppers on top and check you are happy with the layout before sticking in place. Once you are happy, stick the felt holly leaves in place first.

4. Glue the poinsettia flowers in place.

5. Make a small bow from ribbon and stick to the top of the wreath.
