I got the inspiration for 2013's cards while walking around (actually, just walking into) Anchor Paper, a local paper supply/scrapbooking store. The first display I saw had bright, fun colors, shiny lights on the paper, and upon closer inspection... a hedgehog stamp!
**Time out for those of you who don't know me that well... I am OBSESSED with hedgehogs! I think they are adorable and I have a whole shelf of stuffed animals and figurines in my work room!**
So of course, I snatched up that stamp and a sampling of paper and hurried home to experiment. And boy, let me tell you, these cards took a lot of work. Not only to design, but to actually make!
First, I had to stamp the hedgehog image, then I had to color it in, by hand, with 2 different colors. Then I edged all the stamped papers with ink and matted then, then edged them with ink, too. Then I used glitter glue to fill in all the tiny lights.
And voila! My 2013 Christmas Card!
