All Santa’d Out

It’s a wrap!  I finally finished up and mailed my Christmas and holiday cards.  My stamping capacity was maxed at 48 cards.  However, I’m so excited that everyone I love will get a little something handmade by me this year.  All Santas were stamped with versamark and embossed to make the coloring process much easier.  Liquid Applique (white) adds a wonderful texture and sheen on the beard, mustache and trim.  Here are a some stamping highlights to share for inspiration.  Check out the Build A Brads (last photo).  Very swank!
