I did this wreath with an embossing folder I got from Oh My Crafts. The folder is one of the exculsive folders that they offer. I haven't quick figured out what the best way to use it is. In this case, I sanded it after I embossed it. It was the paper feeling wonderful but I wasn't satisfied with the look. Next I cut it out. Then I embossed paper in red and yellow. Then I cut out those parts out and layered them on the wreath. I will still be trying some other things. Only a couple thousand more cards to get done!
