A Super Quick Christmas card by Jane Johnson

If, like me, you've realised that today is the 1st December already and you have lots more Christmas cards still to make then I have a super quick idea for you that means you could make lots of cards in next to no time!!
You will need:
Clear Embossing ink
Gold Embossing powder
Heat tool
Gems
Ribbon
cardstock
paper
Whiff of Joy Christmas Tree stamp
1.
After stamping the Christmas tree stamp with clear embossing ink cover with gold embossing powder like so.
Gently shake off the excess powder and you're image will look like the photo above. Gently heat with your heat tool until the embossing powder sets.
2.
The image after heating the embossing powder. It looks gorgeous as it is and you could stop here but to add an extra bit of Christmas sparkle I have added gems to all the apples on the tree to turn them into baubles as shown below.
I have chosen a selection of golds, purples, pinks and reds to compliment the rest of the materials I'm using on the card.
3.

Here is my finished card. I have simply matted the image onto red cardstock and made my card base with red cardstock, paper from Whiff of Joy's Winter Pretties paper pad and added some ribbon and a bow. Hope you enjoyed my tutorial for a quick way to get through that mountain of cards to make!! Thanks for looking!
