Embossed Christmas Tree Cards
Embellished with Beads and Brads
Christmas tree cards are great holiday cards to send to business partners or corporate clients. Add some glitters, a touch of gold here and another touch of gold there and they will look great for an important client.
I decided to try my hands at creating some of these holiday tree cards and so went searching in my collection of tree rubber stamps for one that resemble a Christmas tree. I found a PSX rubber stamp that has the perfect tree image for my holiday project.
Here's the Christmas tree card design. See whether you might get some inspiration to create some yourself this Christmas.
Let me explain how I created this card.
Here is the list of card making supplies I used for this Christmas card design:
- green basic card (5.75" width X 8" height when folded)
- red card (4" x 5.75")
- white card (3.9" x 5.65")
- gold beads
- red star
- red and gold netting ribbon
- green ribbon
- small piece of vellum
- gold thread
- double sided tape
- green embossing powder
- green & brown markers

- Christmas message rubber stamp "Seasons greetings" (Hero Arts)
- tag rubber stamp (Hero Arts)
- red ink pad
- black ink pad
- clear embossing powder
- embossing heat gun
- watermark ink pad
And here's the step by step instructions for making this Christmas card:
- I stamped the Christmas tree with watermark ink and heat embossed with green embossing powder.
- I used the green and brown markers to color the tree image.
- I watercolored in the meadows and sky.
- Pierce holes on the tree.
- Use the gold thread and needle to sew in the beads and star.
- Layer the white card with the tree image onto the red card.
- Layer this onto the green card front.
- Use UHU glue to attach the netted ribbon.
- Stamp the tag on the vellum with red ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
- Stamp the Christmas words on the tag with black and embossed with clear embossing powder.
- Punch a hole on the vellum tag.
- Draw a circle around the hole with black pen.
