Hello! Hope you’ve had a great week and a great start to your weekend. For many, Christmas is quite far away, but for us crafters, Christmas is only just around the corner. So this CAS White and gold Christmas tree card is a great card for batch making when time is not on your side. This card uses a beautiful Christmas tree stamp from Colourific, and pair it with foil or metallic embossing and you are on to a winner!
CAS White and gold christmas tree Card Process overview
Now I created this card using a digital file before the stamp set had reached us. This stamp comes from the Mr & Mrs Snow A5 stamp set. So to foil it, I just printed it off my laser printed and ran the panel through my Minc machine with some hot foil. But of course, you can create this card with using your stamp and without a laser print. There are a variety of glue pads out there that allow you to stamp your image and then foil this. One example is the glue pad from Brutus Monroe which you can find HERE.
Alternatively, you can also use Bonding powder from WOW! Embossing powder; stamp with clear embossing ink and cover/heat set like regular embossing powder. Then send this through your Minc or laminator with hot foil. One other method is to buy and use sticky embossing powder. I haven’t tried this myself yet, but I have heard it works just as well. For another alternative method if you have no hot foils or laminator, just emboss the tree with a selection of metallic embossing powders for the same effect.
To assemble the card, I die cut the foiled tree with a stitched square die and matted this onto a piece of gold mirri card that was 1/4″ larger. This was then foam mounted onto a white card panel 1/2 larger and lastly, the whole panel was foam mounted onto a 6″ square kraft card base.
