Merry Patterns for a Merry Christmas!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I don’t remember a busier November/December! School, craft fairs, and spruce container production has really taken a chunk out of me. But I’ve finally gotten a chance to do some creating.  And wow, have I had some fun!
Merry Patterns - Half Full - Foil Snowflakes - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin

This first card is heat embossed with gold embossing powder and the fun deer from the Merry Patterns stamp set.  I have loved this set from the moment it became available as a special promotion by Stampin’ Up!  Since it never appeared in any catalog, I expect this set to become a collector’s item.  I’ve seen so many special projects using it!

Here’s another version of the card, using a different paper.  Same idea and layout, but an entirely different look, don’t you think?  The leaf is from the November Paper Pumpkin kit, and is perfect to match the Old Olive in the DSP

Merry Patterns 2 - Half Full - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

The gold embossing really adds a rich touch, don’t you think?  The sentiment is from the “Half Full” stamp set, which I really love as well!  Let me know which one you like the best!
