Festive 3D Embossing with Gemini


How are you getting on with your festive crafting? Are you nearly finished or just starting? In case you need a little more inspiration to get you through, Julia is here to show us how she’s using our latest range of 3D Embossing Folder’s to make this simple but effective contemporary Christmas card!


You Will Need

8×8 card base
Festive Pine Embossing Folder
Gemini Junior Die Cutting and Embossing Machine
Parchment paper
Sara Signature Winter Wonderland- Luxury Glitter Card
Sara Signature Winter Wonderland- Luxury Matt Mirri Card
Sara Signature Winter Wonderland- Luxury A4 Paper Pad
Sara Signature Winter Wonderland- Festive Wishes Die set

Cut the parchment to 5.75 inches square then place centrally into the embossing folder to pass through the Gemini using the sandwich – cutting plate, embossing folder and card, magnetic shim and plastic shim.

Step 2

Use a 6 inch square die and another smaller one to create a frame of approximately half an inch. Cut from the glitter card.

Step 3

Cut the Luxury matt mirri card to 6.5 inches square. Apply glue tape runner to the back of your parchment along the very edges. Then stick the parchment centrally over the mirri card.

Step 4

Apply sticky foam pads to the back of your glitter frame and stick over the top of the parchment covering the tape pen marks.

Step 5

Use your Luxury A4 papers and Mirri card to create a mat and layer for your base card. Stick on your parchment topper with sticky foam pads to create depth. Then add your sentiment.
