Wondrous Wreath - Again!

I needed some more Christmas cards this week and decided not to stick with my original card, mainly because I have so many lovely stamp sets, they should all get a showing!

Wondrous Wreath has been used before, but it deserved to be inked up again. I've kept it simple, in that I haven't cut it out with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits, but the bow has been stamped and die cut. The Bermuda Bay is a gorgeous accent colour!

The colour inspiration came totally from this challenge at Sunday Stamps.  The strip of Santa & Co DSP (on special in the End Of Year Closeout) seemed to suit  the colour palette, perfectly.

Its easy enough to stamp off the edge of the card front, especially as each stamp has a tab which I used to line up the layers. It doesn't seem to matter too much if you're slightly 'off' with this stamp either. With photopolymer stamps it is super-easy to make sure the sentiment is straight.




Now, I'm still not 100% sure that this is the last of my Christmas cards, I need to have a solid session of card writing tonight before I know for sure! Hope your preparations are going well.

Cheers
