Throughout the month of July, we’ve invited some fabulous guest designers to visit here on our blog. They are sure to inspire us all to get a jumpstart on our Christmas creations. Join us over the next several weeks as these wonderful guests feature our classic Christmas stamps and dies. And just when your Christmas crafting mojo is kicking in, we will be here in August to share with you all of our NEW Christmas products!
This week’s guest designer will inspire you to add a modern and elegant touch to your holiday cardmaking this year. Please join us in welcoming the awesome Marika Rahtu!
I am Marika and I am a mother of two lovely, little girls. I’ve been crafting my whole life with different mediums. A few years ago I found paper crafting to be my passion and colouring my therapy for my hectic life with the girls. I love to create cards with cute critters or flowers in them. I was so thrilled when I was asked to GD for Penny Black, since aren’t their critters the cutest and the flowers the most stunning?!? I loved working with Penny Black stamps and dies and I hope you enjoy what I have created.
Well, not only do we get to take in the fun cardmaking eye-candy by Marika this week, she’s also prepared some videos for us, too! Her first card designs feature our transparent set, 30-264 Jolly Critters.
How did she create this cutie? Look no further…

Using these same techniques, Marika also created a second card design.
