I've done some more playing with the "encrusted jewels" technique, and put two pieces together for this card.
To make the tree and star, I die cut them out of thin chipboard, then placed them on a warm grill on top of a layer of non-stick craft mat then parchment paper. I sprinkled them with gold embossing powders. Once they had melted, I added multi-coloured chunky glitter pieces on top. The melted embossing powders hold the glitter in place. To finish it off, I melted UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) on top. I then die cut the same two dies from fun foam and attached them immediately to the encrusted star and branch to give them a bit more body so that they wouldn't bend and crack.
I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment, scattered some Frantage Shabby White on the focal panel and heat embossed it from underneath, then attached my two encrusted jewel pieces, and popped the panel up on fun foam.
