From Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: "Bring Christmas cheer with this cozy holiday card by Terri Burson! She creates a shiny custom embellishment with craft foil from our 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit and dimension from 3D Foam Creative Sheets."
With a strip of 11 x 4 ¼-inch black cardstock, score in half to a 4 ¼ x 5 ½-inch side-fold card base.
Cut a 4 x 5 ¼-inch card panel with patterned paper. Center and adhere card panel to front of black card base with E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill.
Designer’s Tip: To switch refills in the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser, press your thumb on the ridges at the bottom of the case. Open the clear lid, lift up the refill. Add the desired adhesive refill by aligning it with the prongs in the case and closing the lid.
Trim a 2 ½ x 2 ½-inch piece of white 3D Foam Creative Sheet. Remove the bottom liner and adhere to center of card panel. Remove the top liner.
Apply a sheet of Gold Foil from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit, over the exposed adhesive with the gold side facing up. Gently rub to transfer the foil and then peel away the foil sheet.
Cut two 2 ½-inch red ribbon and two ⅛ x 2 ½-inch strips of black cardstock. Cut a slight angle on one strip as pictured; this strip will be placed to the left of the Christmas Box. Both strips will be used as a shadow effect along the left and bottom edge of the box.
Apply both strips of ribbon in a criss-cross direction, adhering on top of foiled box, using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill.
Remove the 3D Foam Bow Shape from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit, remove the inside pieces as shown. Keep the pieces for use later.
Adhere to the center of the crossed ribbons. Remove the top liner and apply Red Foil with the red side facing up. Gently rub then peel away the foil sheet. Fit the 3D Foam Bow Shape pieces back into the red bow, remove the top liners and add Gold Foil to them.
To create shadows, add the angled black cardstock strip to the left side of the gold box, with the angle as shown. Add the other black strip to the bottom edge of the box used with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill.
On a piece of ¾ x 2 ¼-inch black cardstock, add sentiment or a sticker sentiment and place it approximately ½-inch above the foiled gift box embellishment.
