To make the card, completely cover the front of a cream 7" x 5" card blank with the holly backing paper using double-sided tape.
Cut out a mince pie picture and recipe from the motif sheet with a craft knife and ruler and mount them onto the card with sticky pads, angled as shown.
To make the mincemeat jar, cut out the long mincemeat piece and a pot cover from the paper sheet. Starting the roll with a cocktail stick, roll up the 'mincemeat' fairly loosely, finish the roll with double-sided tape. It doesn't matter if it rolls unevenly, you can just tap it down/push it to even it up. The finished roll should be about a centimetre in diameter.
Place a piece of double-sided tape on the reverse of the little pot lid and place the top of the mincemeat roll on it. Fold and crease down around the pot.
Using a craft knife and ruler for the straight bits, and small scissors for the curved bits, carefully cut out the rolling pin, spatula and spoon from the cardstock sheets. Chalk the edges of the spatula and rolling pin to give them a little more definition if required.
Stick the three flat accessories to the card with sticky pads (cut down for the handles). Add the mincemeat pot with a strong tacky glue such as Aleene's. Allow to dry thoroughly.
