Simple Golden Christmas Card

I wanted to make some Christmas cards for a few special people. I wanted the card to be simple but not necessarily look it. So I started thinking about a way to go about making a card like that, and here’s what I came up with... a beautiful, gold embossed Christmas card!

To get this look I used my Christmas greenery stamp from the Tim Holtz Stamptember set. I stamped the image directly on my card base in VersaMark ink in the upper right corner of the card as well as the bottom left corner of the card. 

After stamping in both spots I poured gold embossing powder on the entire image, removed the excess and used my heat tool to set the embossing powder. 

I then created my sentiment. Using the same Stamptember set. I cut a small rectangle out stamped in VersaMark ink again. Used the same gold embossing powder, removed excess and again used my heat tool to set the powder. I then cut a smaller rectangle out of fun foam and taped it to the back of my sentiment. 

I put a few lines of tape on the back of my foam lined sentiment. I then cut a piece of gold thread and created loops that peak out from the back of the sentiment. 

And finally attached it to my card base.
