I wanted a simple concept so I could get Thank yous out in a timely manner - but what a BUST!.  The gold is a glitter gold that is not reflected in this scan, the red is heat embossed and also very shiny - the problem came when I tried to cut out the center hole!  You can see that even though I stamped the wreath image close to the edge, the punch would not reach the center of the wreath - so I pulled out my Martha circle cutter... what a mess! I practiced several times first and then cut the circles... could not get it centered for the life of me, and after 3 or 4 cuts, I guess the blade was no longer sharp and would not give me a clean cut.  On some I kept making the hole larger and larger to try to get a clean, all the way thru cut  Heavy sigh.  I got a few good ones, and then changed my design to a whole new concept.  Not worth the effort!  Kiss that idea goodbye.

  1. Did you stamp first and then did the circle? Maybe it would have been easier to do the circle first and then the stamping? I mean, this design is fab and it'd be shame to waste it!


Thank you so much for your comments!
