My project will be featured over on Instagram (with more details on my personal blog) but here’s a little peek…
… and a bit of a story! The theme this month is a fond one for me, as it takes me back to my roots and the VERY first projects that got me interested in rubber stamps- and that was making my own Christmas wrapping paper! It was back in the early 90’s and my grandparents gave me a rubber stamp of a cow with heart shaped spots on it. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but I collected cows so I thought it was kinda cool. Shortly after that, my aunt showed me a catalog for a company called PSX (show of hands if you remember them!) and I found a little holly stamp with heart shaped berries. These two stamps, together with a green ink pad and a roll of kraft paper from the post office became my Christmas wrapping paper! After that, I learned about gold embossing and started getting more stamps & more inks… and the rest is history.
I made my own wrapping paper on Kraft paper for many years and that’s probably why I still love it so much as a card base so often even today! You’ll see that I’m sharing more love for the Sketch Greenery stamps & I’ve paired it with some greenery & berries from the Festive Bouquet die set along with a sweet sentiment by Anita Jeram.
