Season’s Greetings Holiday Cards
I was thumbing through Martha Stewart’s holiday issue when the idea for my cards came to me. I still love the woodland animals trend, which is probably because I actually get to see bunny tracks in the snow and foxes darting across the road late at night. I traced one of her cute deer templates and decided to go with it for my not exactly Christmas-y cards. I used a mix of papers from my stash along with some more cute flower cutouts–plastic this time– from American Crafts (like Depeche Mode, I just can’t get enough). Although I am not a huge personal fan of traditional scrapbooking, there is something satisfying and instant about putting papers and trinkets together with a simple dab of glue.
I like the mix of patterns and the not quite matchy-matchyness of this set. I was drawing inspiration from the pattern layering I used to see all the time from the in the outfits of crafy and stylish miss Kayte (our stylist, when I was working on Adorn).
The fact that it’s not technically winter yet and I’ve already fallen on the ice three times (twice today, one in sight of a bunch of kids waiting for the school bus) has me feeling a little bummed. I fell so hard my hat flew off, and that’s never not embarrassing! I ordered some ice cleats (who knew they existed?) at work, though, so hopefully that won’t happen again. Here’s hoping it’s not freezing where you are.
