Embossed Christmas CardsPosted: December 16, 2013
I prefer to make my own holiday cards rather than buy them from a store. Last year, we got creative with construction paper, cotton balls, buttons, and ribbon. This year, we decided to go with a very sparkly look, which included our first try at embossing.
We wrote text with a glue pen, and then quickly sprinkled glitter over it before it dried. This can be messy, but thats to be expected any time glitter is used.
For the embossing, we used a snowflake stamp with gold ink and embossing powder. It’s so fun to watch the process as the heat from the embossing tool is applied.
We kept it simple and just used the gold ink and stamp for more snowflakes on the outside of the cards. Working with the embossing tool was pretty easy and fun. It’s a great holiday craft that I look forward to doing again in the future.
