Happy New Year, everyone!  Grin I know Christmas/Yule is long past, but I thought I would share my greeting card for 2009. Every year I make my Christmas cards, I have to do about 40 or so, so stamps make the ideal crafting start point. And I love making stamps.  Cheesy This year I thought I would go with a winter scene: a stag and foresty style background.


I used black ink for the stag, over the red "forest", which was on an A7-ish size ruler-torn piece of conqueror paper. This was put onto claret coloured rice paper and then onto A6 red card. I made an insert of typo paper to write on.


These are the stamps. Because of their size, I used a spray can to "roll" pressure evenly rather than pushing with my hand, which I found kept lifting and "echo" printing when it flopped down. I researched pictures of stags from the internet and then made a stylised shape that I was happy with. The forest was always going to be a little abstract.

I hope you like them. Comments/Feedback always appreciated!

This is beautiful.  Anyone would be lucky to be on your Christmas card list. I like your idea about using a can to press them.
