Baby's first Christmas


They call me The Grinch at work. I earned myself the reputation two years ago when every desk on our floor was decorated with tinsel, tiny Christmas trees and fairy lights except mine. I don't do Christmas jumpers or Secret Santas. I skip Christmas lunches and parties. Last year, when I was heavily pregnant, I asked the organiser of the fancy dress Christmas party (out of curiosity) what she'd think I should wear. She suggested to dress up as a Christmas pudding. Needless to say, I didn't go.

This year, some of our friends celebrate their first Christmas with their little ones. I wanted to use the cute little deer from Marianne Design which I think is perfect for this occasion. I cut it from wrapping paper and then looked for a matching background. Only, I didn't find any in my papers! Instead, I stamped and heat embossed a stitched square with the free Festive Flourishes stamps from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine. It's very subtle as these are Baby's 1st Christmas cards, but you can change the colour of cardstock and embossing powder to add more contrast.

The stitched square backgrounds are mounted onto white and silver mirri card and the sentiment is heat embossed. These are lightweight cards that can easily be made in batches, so why not try it yourself?

Happy Christmas crafting!
