Flat and Shiny...

Flat, so it's a cinch to mail...shiny, so it has a bit of "extra!"

My wreath image is from JustRite's small cling "Christmas Wreath" also has a Christmas sentiment with the set which can be used for the inside of the card.

I stamped the wreath with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copic Sketch markers. I then used a Spellbinder Standard Circle (large) die to cut it to shape. I obtained the sheen with a Versamark Watermark Pad and Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel UTEE, three layers melted with a heat gun. It adds an extra special touch to a fairly simple design.

The base is made up of layers from "A Cozy Christmas" by Simply Stories designer paper.

All linked supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Thanks for stopping by!
