Reindeer Scalloped Circle Frame Christmas Card

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I'm showing you how I created this simple, gold embossed Christmas card. I love gold embossing powder and the way it brings elegance to a card. 


The first thing I did was die cut the Memory Box Reindeer Scalloped Circle Frame and Yvonne Creations Merry Christmas Die from black cardstock. I don't see this Merry Christmas Die in the store right now, but Dies R Us has several that would work HERE.


Next, I used a makeup blender brush and tapped the embossing ink over the deer and the Merry Christmas. Since these dies are intricate I did not rub the brush back and forth over the die-cuts because I didn't want to tear the paper. Tapping works perfectly.


Then I sprinkled Ranger Gold Embossing Powder on top of the die cuts over a sheet of printer paper so it's easier to put the excess powder back into the jar.


Another thing I like to do with intricate dies is to die cut several and layer them to make them more sturdy. I cut 3 extra of the deer and Merry Christmas from black cardstock and glued them all together.

To finish it off, I added some buffalo plaid paper and a small red blow.

Here are the products I used:
