Today I broke open the 'Wondrous Wreath' photopolymer stamp set from the new Holiday Catalogue for this week's Merry Monday#123 challenge. Bonnie's challenge is to use a wreath on your card.
I'm really enjoying working with photopolymer stamps as they make 2-step stamping a snap. Stamping on a piercing mat will give you the best quality image from these stamps. I had in mind to create a wreath on a front door for my card (just in case you can't tell it is a door, lol). The tabs on the stamps and the framelits make lining up the image for die cutting very easy. As the 'Joy' sentiment is floating off the wreath, I die cut 2 and stuck them together to make it a bit sturdier.
