52 CCT Technique Challenge

Hello! Our technique challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is all about embossing - either heat or dry embossing. I have done a bit of both!
The Christmas tree in a jar (from Jar of Cheer) has been heat-embossed with SU's Emerald Envy Glitter embossing powder which is super sparkly. I have also embossed a piece of copper foil with the Softly Falling embossing folder (it kind of reminds me of a fire place).
I have also been asking myself the question - is that a tiny Christmas tree or a huge jar? I asked my friend Clare the same question when she made a lovely card with a stegosaurus eating treats out of a jar. A tiny dinosaur the size of a jam jar would be very cute indeed!

Please have a look at the rest of the DT's embossed creations. We look forward to seeing your Christmas cards. Happy crafting! April x


  1. I love this card April. The tree in a jar is a lovely idea and the little ribbon looks pretty too. That's an interesting question about the size of the jar .... um! Either way it's a lovely card. Barbxx

  2. This is really sweet - a bonsai Christmas tree! The rich copper is lovely. Nicely done. xx

    1. Thanks Deborah! We had a real mini Christmas tree from Sainsburys but girl cat liked eating it! Xx
