Embossed Christmas Card with the Peaceful Wreath Holly Spray

If you're looking for Christmas Card ideas that are simple and easy to mass produce, then consider this card. The Holly spray is a classic Christmas image and its so beautiful here as the main focal point.

To create the image I stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink and heat embossed with Clear embossing powderAre you surprised that I could heat emboss in this color?  A few years ago, when Stampin'UP! changed over to the new foam pad ink pads, we suddenly got the option to HEAT EMBOSS IN ANY COLOR! These pads are super juicy, definitely wet enough to hold the embossing powder while you heat set it.  So stock up on Clear Embossing powder and emboss away.

Embossing the image does several things: 
  • it makes it easier to stay in the lines when coloring (but don't look too closely at mine because I messed up in a few places)
  • when you emboss the image then the lines won't bleed when you color over them
  • and embossing also adds shine to your project
Do you send hand-made Christmas Cards?  Check out this earlier post with 3-Rules for Mass Production.  You'll get to see a hand-made card drawn by my grandfather. But just an FYI: the digital product  mentioned in this post is no longer available.
