Belated Christmas & Happy New Year!

No I haven't fallen asleep and missed Christmas but I wanted to share my 2012 Christmas Card design and I couldn't show it before Christmas or I'd have ruined the surprise for all my expectant recipients. 

Each year my friends tell me they they don't think my next year's card can top the last which is great because it gives me the challenge of coming up with something even better! 2012's card was 100% handmade by me and I have to say I was rather proud of it... 

It involved a stamp of a loving gingerbread man I designed myself and had made at The English Stamp Co. I stamped him on to A7 recycled cotton rag using Dew Drop Pearlescent Rust pigment ink to give him a bit of sparkle. Inside I folded a piece of brown kraft paper and printed one side with my Christmas message and the other with the all important 'How to Make a Gingerbread Man' recipe. I attached this as an insert with some luxury red & white bakers twine and voila! 

The card was greatly received and one friend even gave me a tin of gingerbread biscuits she'd baked from the recipe in my card... so lovely and very yummy! So friends, did I top last years card?....ideas for next year on a postcard please!

Hope you all had a fun filled Christmas my dear readers and I wish you all a very happy new year and best wishes for 2013. I've been a little under the weather for the last week or so but once I am back on my feet and raring to go, I have some lovely things to share with you. Back
