Handmade greeting card featuring a cardinal on an embossed branch with the sentiment "tis the Season" by Martha Lucia Gomez

Stencils are my passion and today I want to share a fun technique with you: embossing with stencils! It is easy, fun and beautiful, perfect for impressing our friends with beautiful cards or presents during Christmas time. Take a look at my card and let me show you how you can make one just like it.

Remove the stencil and wash with soap and warm water. Cover the inked areas with Verdigris Embossing Powder. Shake of excess. Melt with heat tool.
