We gave each other our cads yesterday so I can share this with you today. I am often blogging on the iPad and he is sitting next to me so I would have hated him to see it before he opened it. I wanted this Stampendous stamp for a while and when I saw it being used on Create and Craft one day and then on a few blogs wanted it even more. However it was either out of stock or available in America with ridiculous postage costs. I kept searching eBay and was so pleased when it turned up on there and even more pleased when I won the bid. I have been longing to use it but kept it to use on hubby's card. Expect to see it used more next year as I LOVE it.
I wanted to go for a distressed vintage look as a change from the cute images I normally use for his cards so I started by heat embossing the image with Wow Copper. Hopefully you can see that more clearly here.
The paper is Deja Views Fair Isle Christmas with Kaisercraft Dear Santa for the poinsettias which I made with Marianne dies. The grunge letter is LOTV. I inked and distressed everything in sight and added lashings of glitter for snow. Hubby loves it.
