OLW 14 Square OutlinesPosted: July 28, 2010
I had the idea for this card in my head when Susan had the Christmas in July challenge but as I didn’t get round to it then, I thought it would also work for this week’s challenge: a square card using only outline stamps. It looks like I should have been able to whip this one up in a few minutes but it took quite a few attempts. I tried it in gold first but the embossing powder was not fine enough for the detail in this stamp. I am glad the wreath looks good without being coloured because the colouring necessary for this stamp is too scary to undertake more than once a year! To see how beautiful it can look in the right hands just look at Leslie’s.
Even the little baby one below took me 6 attempts to get it stamped properly and the sentiment in the right place! Thanks to Susan’s challenges my Christmas card pile is growing, something generally unheard of in July. Thanks for dropping by.
