Lovely As A Tree Embossed Christmas

Lovely As A Tree Embossed Christmas

One of my favourite stamp sets is Lovely As A Tree so I was excited to use it once again for one of my Christmas cards.  Creating the card base with Basic Black allows the whisper white layer and cherry cobbler layer to stand out.  Of course, the white embossing powder used on the all of the stamped images creates a sparkling greeting.

Here’s another view with a matching envelope and that is the same “Merry Christmas” that is stamped on the inside layer.

Butterfly Blend

Butterfly Blend

When you combine gold embossing with Stampin’ Blends you get a beautiful Butterfly Blend!  Thanks to Teresa Howe for sharing!  This is a card we made at our Monthly Card Club recently.  It was exciting to see all the ladies so excited with the heat embossing results!  That is one technique I should remember to use at least once a year because it really is magic when the powder melts!  I encouraged all of them to choose their own colours or use the same as my sample.  I always love seeing the different results when they’re given the option to create their own!!

Detailed instructions with measurements are here.

  1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Calypso Coral Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5″ x 3-3/4″.
    1. Use Basic Black Archival Ink to stamp the greeting from the Beautiful Day stamp set near the bottom of the card.
  4. Use Versamark to stamp the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set near the top of the card.
    1. Sprinkle the image with Gold Embossing Powder. Melt the gold with the Heat Tool.
  5. Use the Stampin’ Blends to colour the butterfly image.
    1. Make sure you have the layer laying on a piece of Grid Paper because the colours will go through the cardstock.
  6. Attach over the Calypso Coral Cardstock layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
