Christmas Card with matching gift tag and decoration ft WOW! | Video tutorial by Jeni

posted in: Blog, Jeni 0



Hi, I don’t do a lot of heat embossing but we recently added WOW! embossing powders to the shop, and I think it’s time I start using embossing powders more often.  It’s also Christmas soon, and seems like a good time to try the Deck The Halls embossing powder.  I absolutely love this tree from Wrapped and Ready stamp set and use four in total for today’s tutorial.  The Copic markers I use are listed at the bottom of this post.  Watch the process video directly here on the blog and read on for the written tutorial. The products I use are linked to the shop – click on any underlined word.

Card Sizes

The heat embossed panels are 4×5.25″ (10×13.5cm) to leave a small border on a 4.25×5.5″ (10x14cm) top folding Neenah 110lb card base.  The larger circle die cut is 3.25″ (8.5cm) and the smaller one is 2.75″ (7cm).


I use Copic markers to some quick colouring and I use B05, B06, R05, R35, R37, Y13, Y35, YR16, YG13, YG17 and YG67.


I hope you will try this fun design with the removable decoration.  Please share your Christmas cards with us either in the Paper Tree Tribe or around social media – tag us with #thelittlepapertree.  This card idea was based off a Jennifer McGuire tutorial from a few years ago.
