Shh! This is My Personal Christmas Card This Year...

Remember yesterday I told you that the Wondrous Wreath stamp set was a favorite?  Well, this will prove it to you - this is the card that I sent out (with some differences) as my personal Christmas card this year.  I have been feverishly working away making just over 100 of these!  Okay, maybe it isn't a favorite after doing all of that.  

To color the left side panel, the bottom inside corner and the wreath, I took a dauber using Cherry Cobbler ink and made a few "berries" on the paper after doing the embossing.   I then too a sponge and colored a little Soft Suede in areas and then colored in the rest of it using Mossy Meadow.

Are you wondering what the differences are between this card that we made at a recent workshop and my personal card?  On the front, I used a script "Merry Christmas" from the More Merry Messages stamp set (retired) and on the inside of the card, I embossed the gold leaves on a 1" strip of Cherry Cobbler paper layered on top of a 1/8" strip of Gold Foil paper.  I also changed the sentiment to the "Wishing You a Bright & Beautiful Christmas..." from the Bright & Beautiful stamp set.
