Embossed Christmas Tree



This is the Christmas card that I made for my boss. I work for a company called NCF Furnishings and I had the idea of using our company logo as a gift underneath a tree. The logo has been recycled from our company jotter pads. I had it in my purse for a couple of weeks before I got round to making the card so I am amazed it didn’t get crinkled up….

I used an embossing folder which was a new purchase from Crafter’s Companion, embossed onto white card and then used a gold rub on to add the colour. I then added a red gem brad at the top of the tree and sewed on some red bells. The image was then mounted onto gold card and mounted onto a red linen cardstock base. The finishing touches are a gold bow from my stash and a glitter peel off sticker.

The boss said it was very creative, truly personalised and absolutely loved it.

Materials Used in this Project are as follows:-
Card size – A6
Tools – Darice Embossing Folder ‘Christmas Tree’ Wax Rub on

Embellishments – Jingles bells, American Crafts Gem Brad, ribbon bow, Docrafts/Papermania Glitter peel off
Techniques – Embossing and recycling


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
