Take your Christmas cards to the next level by using simple embossing techniques. This AllFreeChristmasCrafts video tutorial from Carlene Eshelman outlines how to make a cute greeting card that can work for anyone you love. You might think of homemade cards and imagine a folded piece of construction paper, crayons and white Elmer’s Glue. Well, this project could not be farther from that notion!
Grab some red scrapbook paper and your favorite dies to create a festive yet understated card. Send the paper through a Big Shot die cut machine to create the embossed surface on the paper. Once you’ve completed that step you can start decorating your card with stamps, paint, ink and more. Whether you want to send a quick greeting or a detailed note, this is a fun and easy craft for anyone who loves to work with paper. You don’t even have to wait for Christmas to make this card! Use embossing techniques on other paper crafts and you’ll be an expert by Christmas.
