White and red card with small golden Christmas trees placed on a table

Festive Shimmer

Sprinkle sparkle onto this luxury Christmas card!

You will need:

  • Card, white
  • Paper, red-spotted
  • Embossing foil, silver
  • Background stamp
  • Embossing ink, metallics
  • Embossing powder, gold
  • Heat gun
  • Felt, white
  • Paper string, red
  • Bells, gold
  • Sparkly gems, gold
  • Adhesives

To make:

  1. Use a background stamp and gold embossing ink to stamp a piece of foil. Generously sprinkle with gold embossing powder, shake off the excess, then hot emboss with a heat gun until the powder has melted.
  2. Cut the embossed foil into Christmas trees, or shape of your choice. Take a card blank and cover the front with spotty paper. Use pinking shears to cut white felt, a little smaller than the blank, then glue on the front.
  3. Fix the embossed foil shapes on top of the felt. Tie a few bells with red string into bows and glue them at the bottom of the card, then embellish with sparkly gems to finish.
