Rainbow Embossed Christmas Card | by Jeni

posted in: Blog, Jeni 0

Hi, are you super prepared and finished all your Christmas cards? I haven’t really started making any yet. This is only my second Christmas card.  The Luxe collection of Catherine Pooler inks is now complete but I find myself drawn towards brighter colours.  I use my favourite from Date Night and use them for heat embossing with cute fun stamp by Trinity Stamps.



Watch the video here on the blog and read on for the written tutorial.

Rainbow Embossed Slimline Card

Catherine Pooler – Date Night ink collection

Brutus Monroe – Fairy Dust embossing powder

Trinity Stamps – Tree-Mendous stamp and coordinating die

Catherine Pooler – On The Rocks slimline cover plate die


  • Add ink colour to a glass mat and spritz with water
  • Pounce Bristol Smooth card onto wet ink colour
  • Ink up the stamp with the same Date Night ink pads
  • Cover with Fairy Dust embossing powder and heat set



  • Cover white card with Sticky Roll and die cut On The Rocks cover plate die
  • Stamp sentiment and trim into three banners
  • Foam mount to card panel and adhere to card base


Catherine Pooler dye inks stay wet longer. I love that you can use them for heat embossing with clear embossing powder but often forget this. The Fairy Dust embossing powder is clear with some sparkle – perfect for Christmas cards!


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will use your Catherine Pooler inks for heat embossing.  Share your heat embossed cards with us in the Paper Tree Tribe.
