DAY 14 - Christmas Inspiration

Hello Again! 

Well 2 posts in one day ! I hope that you stuck with me for Day 14 of Christmas projects and inspiration.

Thankyou to everyone who is taking the time to comment and keep popping in daily.
Now isn't he a cutie! and looking very proud of himself I must say!
This is a Woodware stamp and I have stamped it on the white card and onto several different patterned papers and then cut the pieces up to then adhere to the stamped image (like a paper jigsaw puzzle) this is paper piecing for those who haven't tried this technique before.  This stamp and several other Woodware stamps are perfect for doing this and they have been designed by Francoise Read.
I have added a Christmas greeting, added some faux stitching around the edge and used pearl drops to look like snow and on the ends of his antlers!
This is a great card to make with the Children too - younger ones will need the image stamping and perhaps cutting out but they will love to piece it back together themselves.
I hope that I am still inspiring you with all of Christmas ideas and please pop in tomorrow to have a look at Day 15!
 I am sure you are remembering this now (but just in case you have just found the blog!) dont forget to add a comment to be in with a chance at receiving some fabulous Blog Candy.
Thankyou to everyone for popping in,
Bye for now
