Christmas

Winter Wonderland Card with Quick Tips

I love this time of year when the weather changes and we approach the Christmas season! This card was inspired by the sample in the Holiday Catalog on page 35 tha features the stunning Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder and Foil paper!

The first card I made using the foil and embossing folder didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it too. I ran the Gold Foil and Shaded Spruce through the Stamp, Cut, & Embossing Machine separately. This made it difficult to line up the trees the way I wanted them to.

For my second card, I adhered the Silver Foil directly to the Misty Moonlight cardstock and then ran it through the Stamp, Cut, & Embossing Machine! Much better!

TIP: To achieve crisp & even trees-adhere the foil directly to the cardstock before running it through the die cutting machine!

Another tip for this card is to paper save! The mat piece is a full piece of Whisper White, so I stamped the sentiment on that and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes circle. The embossed piece will cover up the hole and you just saved paper! When making multiples, it’s a money saver too!

I added a coordinating ribbon to his neck to look like a scarf. I also popped the moose and the sentiment up on Dimensionals.
