First Christmas In Our New Home Ornament
Looking for the perfect ornament to add to your tree in celebration of your first christmas in your new home? This is the ornament for you with a little bit of gingham flare to add to the holiday feel.
Each ornament made with an aluminum circle (3") hand stamped with: first christmas in our new home, with a wreath details finishing around the edge. In the center the year and street address is hand stamped under an embossed house. To finish the ornament a red and black gingham bow is added.
The year and street address are optional.
Please note the house is embossed and when stamped will naturally have spots missing in the design that do not imprint, no two will be exactly alike in how this happens. The house is done in ebony and depending on lighting shows blue that is naturally mixed in black coloring.
Here is a list of materials:
- stamping blanks: aluminum (silver color) and is light weight
Hand stamping is the process where I use forged metal stamps, which contain letters, numbers, punctuation or designs, a hammer and steel block. I individually strike each letter, number, punctuation or design into the metal to leave an impression. I do not use a machine, nor a press. Many confuse engraving to be the same as hand-stamping, however, it is a very different process. Engraving is machine done in which metal is taken away and usually has no character charm. With hand stamping spacing and impression depth is not exact, which is a charm to the process of hand stamping pieces. It is not to be seen as a flaw, but rather a perfectly imperfect custom hand made unique piece for you to treasure. This has become a form many love and appreciate.
