Quick & Easy Dry Embossed Christmas Cards – by Sharon Johnson

We do little Make-N-Take Mini Classes each Saturday. This past Saturday we were playing with embossing folders for quick Christmas cards. Below are the samples I created. The ladies at class made some slight variations to suit their preference and I’ll mention those variations beneath each photo. All embossing folders used are by Darice.

2 480x645

This is a good design for a masculine or earthy type feel.

I used the embossed side of the image for this sample. One lady at class flipped her image over and used the de-bossed side where the markings on the pinecone were more prevalent. Both were equally as nice! That’s the fun of folders. Once your paper is embossed, you have two sides to decide between.

To get the scored line above and beneath the ribbon, I used a score board – super easy!

Folder: Pine Branches in Corner by Darice

Ribbon: May Arts 3/4″ Ivory Printed CanvasNoel

Embellishments: Kaisercraft Rhinestones – Black

1 480x587

This is a fun one for rhinestone lovers – kids would LOVE to make this!

Folder: Reindeer in Corner by Darice

Stamp: Merry Christmas by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Ink: Delicata – Golden Glitz

Embellishments: Kaisercraft Rhinestones – Green, Red

3 480x678

This card and the next are larger at 5 x 7.

They fit into the A7 Clear Boxes.

I like to use a heavyweight white paper for substance.

Folder: Mosaic Candle by Darice

Paper: Luxury Pearlescent Metallic 105# Cardstock – Gold

Ribbon: May Arts 1/2″ Sheer w/Satin Edge – Red

6 480x645

I’m going to show you two photos of this card. Being so highly metallic I just couldn’t seem to get a good view of how pretty this really is.

7 480x733

This is also 5×7 and fits into the A7 Clear Boxes.

I am SO partial to these mirror papers!

Making a card really doesn’t get much easier than this. Some ladies at class chose to omit the bow so their card was then totally flat for mailing – a bonus!!!

Since this was a class and for expediency I had a large clear block set up with this sentiment that we used on all card insides.

Stamp: Merry Christmas by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Inks used for sentiments: VersaFine – Onyx Black, Vintage Sepia

And last, but certainly not least, was the card that inspired this class. This lovely creation by Deb, using the de-bossed side of the tree.
