Looking for some easy-to-make DIY Christmas cards this holiday season? Look no further than embossing folders! ❄️🎄
While I don’t often reach for embossing folders (perhaps because I don’t have many), they are one of the easiest ways to take handmade cards to the next level. With so many techniques to experiment with and so many options from a ton of amazing brands, embossing folders really do offer something for everyone, especially during the chaos of the holiday season!
The embossing folder I am using here is the Winter Foliage 3-D Textured Embossing Folder from Sizzix. As for the technique, here is what I did:
- Simply rub your ink of choice (I’m using Distress Oxides from Ranger Ink) on the flat side of the folder
- Spray your cardstock with water
- Run your embossing folder and cardstock through your die-cutting machine for a beautiful, inky look!
Also, simply using your embossing folder with no ink will give a more clean and simple yet still beautiful effect.

To finish, glue your card panel to a card base, I used Bearly Art Glue.
Ta-da! It’s that easy to create Christmas cards for your loved ones.
