Christmas Card Surprise
The surprise is on me, since I didn't really like this stamp at first. I guess I just didn't know what to do with it. So I started with coloring it, then added stickles and a tree brad for the "A" and mounted it on metallic gold paper. I tied a gold cord around it, but then what? It was too small for the card, leaving a lot of empty dark space. Since I had a sheet of trees already stamped, I cut one out, added gold brads, popped it out below the main image and voila--I have a card!
Even though I like it now, it's going to be one of a kind since there are too many steps to mass produce it.
(Unfortunately, the scanner doesn't do the bling justice!)
