Lovely as a Tree Christmas Card In Copper

Hello Friends,

I’ve been making Christmas Cards this month for my Card Making Classes.  I finally have time to share some of them.  This card, which was made with Copper Embossing Powder and copper print tissue paper, was a hit!  I love using tissue paper on the front of my cards.  There are so many prints to choose from.

Completely cover the piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock with a Glue Stick.

Place the tissue paper on top of this panel and smooth out any wrinkles.

Turn this piece over a place a thin line of glue on all sides and press the excess tissue paper to the back of the panel.
