Heat Embossing with Stencils for Christmas

Today’s Christmas card was made by heat embossing a stencilled image.


  • Take a piece of Pearlescent Specialty Paper and cover with one of the Basic Patterns Decorative Masks.
  • Use a sponge dauber with Whisper White Craft ink to add ink onto the paper through the mask. Normally you would use Versamark ink for heat embossing, but the white craft ink works extremely well with the fine detail in the stencil / mask.
  • Remove the mask and add Gold Embossing Powder. Heat to melt the powder.
  • Attach embossed panel to a Shaded Spruce card base.
  • Die cut a piece of vellum cardstock with one of the Seasonal Labels Dies.
  • Stamp holly leaves and mistletoe with Shaded Spruce ink and die cut.
  • Stamp berries with Cherry Cobbler ink and die cut.
  • Add the holly, berries and mistletoe to the top left hand corner of the vellum die cut.
  • Attach the vellum to the card front.
  • Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock with Whisper White Craft ink and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder.
  • Add the embossed sentiment to the vellum.
  • Tie a small bow with some Gold Shimmer ribbon and attach to the base of the vellum die cut using Mini Glue Dots.
  • Decorate inside panel and envelope to match the card front.
