Today I came up with two different projects! To start, I tried to create a hot foil design on a dark green background, playing with the new hot products! My second project are fun and cute Christmas tags! I chose classic red and green plus gold and teal as my color scheme to make them match my Christmas tree ornaments!
- Christmas Trees Hot Foil Plates & Die
- Holiday Foliage Hot Foil Plate
- Holiday Greetings Hot Foil Plates
- Circle Frames Die Set
- Ornamental Shaker Die Set
- Pines & Holly Die Set
- Banner Duo Die Set
Step By Step Instructions:
- Trim and score an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) from a cream paper. I used Lawn Fawn Vanilla Malt cardstock, Tim Holtz Maxi Guillotine Trimmer and Mini Score Board.
- Trim a green rectangle slightly smaller than the card base. I used Concord & 9th Evergreen cardstock for my card.
- Dry emboss the background on green with Holiday Foliage Hot Foil Plate. I ran the hot foil plate twice inside my Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine to fill the whole area with the pattern. My sandwich was:
- 1) Sizzix Multipurpose Platform at Tab 1;
- 2) thick embossing rubber mat;
- 3) cardstock;
- 4) Holiday Foliage Hot Foil Plate face down on the cardstock;
- 5) clear cutting pad.
- Die cut a stitched circle from the same green carstock that you used before with Circle Frames Die Set.
- Die cut an ornament top from gold glitter paper. I used Concord and 9th gold glitter paper.
- Die cut from light green and red two holly leaves and three berries, using Pines & Holly Die Set. I used Bazzill Juicy Pear, Bazzill Easter Grass and Concord & 9th Poppy cardstock on my card.
- Hot foil the Christmas Trees Hot Foil Plates on clear acetate, following the instructions of your hot foil system. You will need both a hot foil system and a die cutting machine for this step. I used:
- Die cut the trees with the coordinating die from Christmas Tress Hot Foil Plates & Die set.
- Adhere the hot foiled trees to the circle with tiny glue dots.
- Trim the excess with the sharp small scissors following the circle edge.
- Hot foil the sentiment from Holiday Greetings Hot Foil Plates on red, following the instructions of your hot foil system. You will need both a hot foil system and a die cutting machine for this step. I used:
- Die cut the sentiment with the coordinating Banner Duo Die Set.
- Arrange and glue in place all the elements on the card front by popping them on a foam tape for a bit of dimension.
- Tie a matching gold bow on the ornament top and add a coat of a glitter glue to the berries.
Step By Step Instructions:
- Die cut a bunch of arched tags, using Labels Hot Foil Plates & Dies set and Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine or Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I picked Bazzill Peppermint, The Stamp Market Coastal and Forest cardstock.
- Carefully split in two the stamps from Holiday Elements Stamp Set with the sharp small scissors.
- Repeatedly heat emboss in gold onto labels the holiday designs, using VersaMark clear sticky ink and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder. Don’t forget to prep the paper with a Powder Tool Applicator to prevent the embossing powder to stick where you don’t want it!
- Then heat emboss in gold the matching sentiments, using again VersaMark clear sticky ink and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder.
- Shape the sentiments into a fish-tail banners, using the sharp small scissors, or die cut them with a stitched circle die from Frames Squared Die Set.
- Arrange and glue in place all the elements by popping the sentiments on a foam tape for a bit of dimension.
- Finish with the matching gold half pearls and twine.
That’s all for today! Hope you like today’s fun holiday projects! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
