Stampin' Up! Merry Patterns quick & simple

Hello, I'm really enjoying using the Merry Patterns stamp set this week - these reindeer's look fabulous in their jumpers!

For this card we used the outline stamp with black Memento and stamped in the detail using Soft Suede then a little bit of fussy cutting (not too difficult) to cut him out.

Looking at the photo above, I am wondering if I need to add an eye with a black pen ... what do you think?

I designed these cards with male recipients in mind so not too much glitter and sparkle - just  a little underneath the deer so he does not look like he is floating.

I scuffed the edges of the white and black panels - some of my crafty ladies can't bring themselves to make scruffy cards; so they don't!

The sentiment in this set is very clever, its a two step stamp.  The outline is stamped first and the the inside decoration is stamped in Old Olive - very clever indeed.

This is another card that would work in so many different colour combinations.

I have two further Coffee & Cards sessions available this week if you would like to join me to make this and another project, you can find the details here.

Details of the products I used for this project can be found below.

Hope you can join me for some crafty fun soon.
