Christmas In July Embossed Card

Hi! Nadine here today to share a Christmas in July embossed card I made. I admit it I usually wait until the last minute to make my Christmas cards and then end up not having enough time to do them. So this year I decided to start early, really early!

The first thing I did was apply some red and white acrylic paint onto a Gelli Arts Plate and spread it around with a brayer and then pressing a piece of white cardstock onto it. Using Gelli Plates is a fun way to create different textures and designs. Once the paint was dry, I used a punch to create the ornaments. I then used some gold embossing powder on the ornaments to add the polka dots and the top of the ornaments.

On a piece of green Core’dinations Cardstock, I embossed it with the Couture Creations Tickle Me Feathers Embossing Folder. I then lightly sanded the embossed areas and then with my finger I applied some gold ink onto the embossed areas.  Then using some burlap string I tied little bows for the ornaments and on the hangers for the ornaments. Added some bling and viola, I have a Christmas in July embossed card! One card down many more to go!
