Metallic embossing for a classic style

Christmas cards can come in all shapes, sizes and colours. However, for this card, I’m using metallic embossing for a classic style Christmas card. Metallic embossing pairs so well with white and allows the scene to pop off the card. This takes the whimsy trees from the Catherine Pooler Jolly Trees stamp & die set to make an elegant classic Christmas card. 

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY DESIGN-TEAM WORK FOR THE LITTLE PAPER TREE - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Metallic embossing for a classic style

Metallic embossing for a classic style - creating the scene

To start off, die-cut a circle from a white card panel. In addition, run this back through your die-cutting machine with the Catherine Pooler Dotted Zig-Zag Cover Plate die. 

For the background, use an ink blending tool to add ‘Something Borrowed’ and ‘Suede Shoes’ Catherine Pooler inks in a circle motion, fading out to light towards the top. With a wet brush, add splatters of water over the top and dab off with a dry towel to create a snow scene. 

Metallic embossing for a classic style - adding the heat embossing

For the trees, place a selection of trees from the ‘Jolly Trees’ stamp set in your MISTI stamping platform, stamping this in WOW! embossing ink onto white card. Cover these in a selection of metallic embossing powders and heat set. 

Use the coordinating dies to die-cut the trees out and foam mount these onto the card panel. Next, foam mount the die-cut circle card panel over the top to enclose the trees within the window. 

For added definition, use White Gloss Tonic Nuvo drops to add more ‘snow’ to the scene to add definition. Finish the card with a heat embossed sentiment from the stamp set and embellished with gold sequins.
