This years Christmas cards…

Well it’s almost Christmas… are you ready? I’ve finished work now, gifts are bought and wrapped and distributed and these cards have been posted and delivered….

Whilst at the most fabulous Handmade Fair in Hampton Court in September I saw a great Christmas card design. It was a simple pullover design with the words ‘Stay Cosy’.

I really liked it and thought I’d be cheeky and copy it, but as I started to draw my first pullover, I found that my mind was wandering around the woolly idea and the word ‘cosy’… this led me to tea cosy and so here’s my Christmas card…

I bought the white cards from The Works (£4 for a pack of 50 cards)

I drew the simple cosy shape with a wiggly line, added the bottom with simple lines, added a handle and a spout, a swirl of steam and the words ‘Stay Cosy’ all in a bronze or silver Sharpie.

The hat was coloured in a loopy line, alternating red and green.

I placed a pompom on top (bought from Poundland – a pack of 180 – with a whole load of red and green in the pack!) with a little double sided tape.

And that’s it, my Christmas cards made.

It’s not the greatest drawing in the world, but if you’re drawing each card individually there has to be an element of speed!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas
and all the very best for 2018

Love, Rosie
