Holiday Quickies: Elegant Last Minute Card

Merry Christmas to All

By: Debbie Ebat, Artistic Guide

Finished Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

This is my first ten minute card.  Some cards can take me all day, some can be done in a few minutes.

Santa Stamp (Inkadinkado)
Cream Card Stock (Paper Temptress)
Red & Green Card Stock (Paper Temptress)

Distress Ink Victorian Velvet and Fired Brick (Ranger)
Versamark (Tsukineko)
Black embossing powder (Personal Stamp Exchange)
Stardust Stickles (Ranger)
Embossing folder - Funky Poinsettia (Craft Concepts)
Bling on a roll (Recollections)
Double-stick tape
Heat gun
Tim Holtz Ink applicator (Ranger)
Die cut and embossing machine (Cuttlebug)
Embosssing Buddy(Inkadinkado)


  1. Using  cream card stock, I applied distress ink Victorian Velvet with ink applicator over the card stock, then I applied the Fired Brick on top of Victorian Velvet.  After the paper dried, I rubbed the embossing buddy over the card stock to prevent embossing powder to stick to previously inked portions, and stamped the Inkadinkadoo stamp in  Versamark.  I sprinkled black embossing powder over the image, and set with the heat gun.  When the paper was cool, I trimmed the image and layered with red and green card stock.
  2. The next step is to take your base card  and put the embossing folder around the front page of the card, then put it through your dye cut machine. The I took the  Victorian Velvet Distress ink and highlighted the embossed portions of the  base card.  The final touches are to add the bling on a roll tape across the bottom, and little dabs of stickles  in the center of the Poinsettias.

I hope you enjoyed this fun, quick card.
