Hi everyone! It’s me, Sandra, here on the blog today. And I’m sharing a fun DIY Christmas card decoration with you. I used the Layered Circle Punches to create cute Xmas ornaments. These can be used on presents too. In addition, I created a background with embossing paste, embossing powder, and a heat gun. So if you are looking for a great way to enhance your cards, this is just the right post for you!
First, grab a variety of papers. I used gold, pink, rose, and glitter paper. Second, punch circles with the Nesting Punch Circle. Tip: Stack three papers to punch the circles. This will save some time! Next, cut the circles with scissors as shown in the photo below. Don’t go all the way! Just stop slightly before the center. I made eight cuts on each circle. Now, layer the circles with foam squares, starting with the largest circle at the bottom.
Third, grab a blank card base. And use a star stencil and apply translucent embossing paste. Fourth, dust rose gold embossing powder over the paste. Remove the excess powder by shaking the card. Fifth, heat emboss the powder and paste with a heat gun. Next, adhere the ornaments with foam pads onto the embossed card base.
Furthermore, add a title with the Lowercase Word Punch Board. Tip: Use tweezers and liquid glue to adhere the title ‘merry xmas’. Last but not least, add pine brunches and paper stars.
