How to make a handmade Christmas card with embossing
Welcome to today’s blog which is week 17 card sketch challenge from my Facebook Group – Crafty Stamping Club. This is a Handmade Christmas Card made using the Wrapped in Plaid by Stampin’ Up! and incorporates some sprig punched elements using my Sprig Punch.
I decided to go with a 4″ x 4″ card size today, mainly to save on my lush gold speciality cardstock, with a black, gold and tartan plaid theme.
All products used are listed below for your perusal.
Instructions and Measurements:
Cut a piece of A4 cardstock down to 8″ x 4″ and score in the middle at 4″
Cut x2 pieces of gold cardstock measuring 1 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere to top and bottom of card front.
Cut a piece of DSP to 1″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere a piece of co-ordinating ribbon – I used the lovely shaded spruce and gold ribbon.
Punch or die cut two circle shapes (one larger than the other) and adhere together and attach to centre of your card using dimensions.
Emboss on to black card stock any of the tree images from this stamp set as well as your chosen sentiment.
Punch / cut out and apply to your card. The tree is for the centre of the card and the sentiment for the bottom right.
Punch out some sprig shapes in gold, black and gold glitter and attach under the raised circle area.
Embellishments and Decoration:
Add embellishments of your choice to finish off your card.
