Countdown to Christmas and I wanted to do this one for my blog especially. You will find the text Merry Christmas, in Backstreet Designs Pattern Book/14 The 12 Days of Christmas, and the pattern is available here if you'd like to use it.
Mother and baby deer pattern was in an issue of Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft; a design by a most talented artist, Greg Sukendro.
The little snowflakes have been added compliments my graphics programme PhotoImpact3. Gosh, I could have gone overboard with more beautiful snowflakes but this post is about 'paper-cutting'.
Background papers: BasicGrey Tidings/Wintermint Fruitcake.
