Send the cosiest greetings this Christmas with these Scandi-style mitten cards. Decorate with your favourite papers and embellishments from your craft stash.

You will need:

  • Mitten template – download and print here
  • Festive papers
  • Felt embellishments
  • Stitched circle die (optional)
  •  Border embossing folder (optional)
  • Sentiment stamps or stickers (optional)
  • Coloured card
  • Adhesive gems and pearls
  • Craft knife or scissors
  • Pencil and ruler
  • Glue pen
  • Foam pads

Step 1

Draw around the mitten template onto a 13 x 15cm base, positioning the template slightly over the top edge.

Step 2

Carefully cut out the mitten to create the shaped base card. Cover the front panel of the mitten with red stitched-effect star paper and cut off the excess.

Step 3

Create the mitten’s cuff by cutting it from green gingham paper and then attaching it to the mitten. Stick a length of ribbon across the paper joins.

Step 4

Cut red and green stars from patterned paper and glue them together. Attach a large pearl to the centre and add it to the mitten with foam pads.

Step 5

Add a felt holly embellishment to the ribbon band. Stamp, or handwrite, a Christmas sentiment onto white card, then trim and mount it onto red card. Attach the sentiment so it runs across the mitten’s cuff to finish.
