Video Tutorial

Here is a very unprofessional video showing how I made this card. Please excuse the blurriness, and everything else that is not quite right:) I think you can at least get the idea, even if it's not the best.

Edited to add: I believe this folder from Darice is called "Hanging Ornaments."

Blue Embossed Christmas



Sorry for all of the very simple cards lately. I happened across some "new" (unused, but purchased last December after I was done making Christmas cards for the year) folders and I wanted to use some of them. This one is by Darice. I brayered Versamark on the folder before embossing, and then sprinkled the embossed piece with Kaleidoscope embossing powder and heat embossed it. I matted with the same color cardstock. That's it. The sentiment will go in the inside.

Two More Simply-Embossed Christmas Cards

 Two more simple Christmas cards using the same Darice folder that I used on yesterday's card. I think I have 51 Christmas cards done now. Probably about 25 - 30 more to go. I finally made a little progress on my next-year's calendars, too. I have six months done and six to go. Usually by this time, they are finished. :(

At any rate, to make these cards, I cut the rectangle of white cardstock and then just embossed a small portion of the folder. I matted with red. The sentiments on both of them are from Lawn Fawn.

Simply Embossed Christmas

Not much to this card, but it's all I've got for today. I used an as-yet unused Darice folder (I think I got it last December) to make it. I simply embossed a piece of textured, white-core cardstock with the folder, and then sanded it down a bit and added it to a card front. Tomorrow's cards use portions of it - and are a sneak peek into next December's calendar page:)

Blue Christmas

One more Christmas card done. This patterned paper was another strip from the sheet from a couple days ago. I matted with a darker coordinating blue and placed it on the right side of the card. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.
