One Christmas Card - Two Techniques!

Hi everyone

Time to share another tutorial!  More Christmas as you can see!….and another way to use two lovely stamp sets from Rubber Dance.

In this video tutorial I show you how to use two different techniques to achieve this look.  The Green card is gold embossed and the red card is gilded so the choice of colour and technique are yours!

I love how this looks - almost oriental.  I had an idea for the tabbed layout and it worked really well so I will definitely be trying this on other occasions.

Cutting Guide (from the bottom to the top!):

Card Base Red/Green: 11 1/2" x 8"
1st Gold Layer: 5 1/2" x 7 3/4"
1st Red/Green Layer: 5 1/4" x 7 1/2"
2nd Gold Layer: 4 1/4" x 5" scored at 1/2"
2nd Red/Green Layer: 4" x 4 7/8" scored at 1/2"
3rd Gold Layer 4" x 2 1/2" scored at 1/2"
3rd Red/Green Layer: 3 7/8" x 2 1/4" scored at 1/2"
Gold Inner 4" x 2 3/4"
Red/Green Inner: 3 3/4" x 2 1/2"

Have a look at the two lovely stamp sets I used by following this link!  Christmas Greetings (SEC4-M) and Pine Fir Yew (NP6-M) from Rubber Dance.

Here is what the inside looks like:

I really hope you enjoy this tutorial and that you give both techniques a try if you haven't already!

This month I managed to miss making a project for the Rubber Dance monthly Colour Challenge so I was determined that this one would be my effort so as the colour scheme is Red Gold and Green - perfect for this time of year I think these cards will do the trick!  I hope I have inspired you to play along.  You have until the end of the month and although it would be nice you do not have to use Rubber Dance Stamps.  So follow this link and then get your creative thinking caps on!

Hope you are having a creative week and thank you for popping by X


  1. Oh wow Helen! These cards really are pure luxury! Absolutely awesome. Thanks for an intersting tut. I must try foiling, it is so beautiful!

    1. It would be a great addition to all the lovely layers you create in your work Gabrielle x

  2. This looks so very elegant, thanks so much for the tut, I must try this one ♥

  3. Beautiful!! :-) I love the tutorial, great tips on how to get a better result with foiling. Thank you so much for using my stamps - they look so pretty on your cards.

    1. Thanks Bibi - the fact that they stamp so clearly meant I got a great result with both techniques - I have one more tutorial with the same stamps to share soon! X
