I always look for one design/stamp to use for Christmas cards and make several of them. This was what I was going to use for this year - however......
I stamped out the Stampendous wreath, took 48 hours to get it colored, and then realized I didn't have any gold paper. Did some heat embossing around the edges of the panel to make it gold and mounted the wreath on that. Of course, during the process I got gold embossing powder all over the Versmark ink pad! Stamped the sentiment, smeared it, and started over. Finally got the sentiment right, added some Wink of Stella to the wreath and it's a done deal.
Needless to say after working on this one card for approximately 5 days I ditched the great idea for mass production.
Thanks for stopping by..........and have a great weekend.
