Welcome to WOW! Embossing Powder!
Hey friends, thanks for joining me again for another instalment of Exploring Embossing! Today, I’m using a rainbow of embossing powders and glitters to create a bright and beautiful Christmas card!
I had already die-cut a panel of white card using the Pretty Pink Posh Tree Cover plate on another card project. So, rather than let the leftover trees go to waste, I thought I’d turn them into a second card! I pressed each tree into my embossing ink, poured over some embossing powder (all the colours I used are listed below) and set them with my heat gun.
I then used the cover plate die as a guide to help me line up the trees so they would be equally spaced on my card. Placing them face down into the tree spaces in the die, I added small foam squares on to the backs of each tree, then placed my card base directly over the top.
To finish up, I trimmed out a sentiment from Simon Say Stamp’s pre-printed sentiment cards, and added a few iridescent sequins.
If you’d like to see how the card came together, please check out my YouTube video:

Hey! I’m Jayne, or you may know me as Card Days’ Night!
I live in Chester, UK, with my husband and two young daughters, and I work as a travel lawyer – so life is pretty full on! When I’m not busy with work, kids and family life, I love nothing more than spending time in my craft room. Cardmaking is my passion but I also love planning, memory keeping and sewing.
I love to explore new places, but I’m always happiest when I’m home!
