A Brutus Monroe Christmas

A Brutus Monroe Christmas

It's never to early to start on those Christmas cards, right? I typically begin my cards in July or September. I don't send out a ton, but each one I make is different. Keeping them unique keeps my creative interest so I don't get bored with one style of card. I'd like to share a few of this year's Christmas cards with you, Brutus Monroe style!

This first card features the FESTIVE DEER stamp. This stamp is just stunning all on its own, so I really wanted the image to stand out. I did a subtle background of an embossed woodgrain pattern in ALABASTER EMBOSSING INK, leaving an open space to stamp the deer on. The deer is stamped in WAGON SURFACE INK. I then added a bit of vellum, striped paper, and the "joy" sentiment that was die cut from glitter paper. 

For this next card, I kept the background simple again. I adhered some die cut snowflakes all around the background, and then for the main focal point I stamped out the SNOWGLOBE stamp and colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I then filled the globe with a cute little reindeer, trees, and embellished with a die cut sentiment and little raffia bow.  

This third card uses some more WAGON SURFACE INK, and the little stamped images are colored in with my STYLEFILE ALCOHOL MARKERS. I added the Wagon ink over a heart stencil, then layered on the little mugs. A few strips of washi tape in the background was all this card needed to keep it fun and simple. 

I hope these cards inspired you to start creating your own Christmas cards! Not only do your loved ones enjoy hearing from you, but getting a card that you created with love makes it so much more meaningful. 

Until next time,

I have the festive deer stamp and love the simplicity of the card. Such a beautiful stamp does not need a fussy card.
