Season's Greetings Christmas Card | Tim Holtz Sizzix Christmas

Christmas will be here before you know it, so now is definitely the time to get started creating your Christmas cards. Today I'm sharing a Season's Greetings Christmas Card with you that I created using the beautiful Tim Holtz Sizzix Poinsettia 3D Texture Fades embossing folder.

To get started, I lightly misted a piece of kraft cardstock with water using my Distress Sprayer. I then embossed it using the Poinsettia 3D Embossing Folder. Next, I applied Peeled Paint Distress Oxide to the flat side of the folder and embossed it again. This applies the ink to the "background" of the design.



Once the ink was completely dry I colored the raised surface design of the leaves with an embossing marker and sprinkled it with Peeled Paint Embossing Glaze and then embossed it using a heat gun. I repeated this process for the flowers using Fired Brick Embossing Glaze and for the centers using Fossilized Amber.


Once everything was heat embossed, I colored over the embossed areas with a Walnut Stain Distress Crayon. Working in small sections, I rubbed the crayon into the cracks and crevices of the embossed design.


I then used a damp paper towel to wipe away any excess and reveal the embossed color once again.


To further distress the image, I inked the edges of the paper with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.


I then spritzed the entire piece with water using my Distress Sprayer and dabbed the droplets dry.


To complete the card, I added a quote chip from a past Christmas Quote Chip set and layered the design onto a piece of inked cardstock and then onto a piece of patterned paper from a past Christmas paper stash.
