I did indeed have enough energy to make a card yesterday and as planned, it was Merry Patterns. My friend Julia and I sat at my table and had a lovely hour or two, playing with stamps and ink and paper and chatting. It really shouldn’t be this much fun!! And you get cards made so that it’s productive fun.
My sister Caro was playing around with Merry Patterns last week and one of her test pieces was a gold embossed deer in a sweater. I loved it, so that’s where I started. I embossed him in the corner on very vanilla so that there was room to add the sentiment. Technically the sentiment is a two step stamp with holly on the letters, but I didn’t want to add another colour and I felt that the deer himself was already fancy enough. I mounted this onto a real red base. I’ve got my eye on all the candles next, but I’m trying not to get too Christmassy. We still have 12 or so weeks!
I hope you enjoyed today’s project.
