Rudolph Day



It’s Rudolph Day over at my friend Sarn’s blog Stamping for Pleasure

Basically in an attempt to make a decent dent on your Christmas cardmaking Sandra has for many years designated the 25th of the month as Rudolph day and to join in we simply need to make a Christmas card for it.

I would normally put all my Christmas stuff away in January for it not to come down from the top of my bookcases until September but I am trying to keep Christmas crafting through the year, it is far less stressful and ther isn’t the same pressure for time so it is worthwhile doing and a person can try can’t they?

Anyhoo, this image was already coloured in and was supposed to be for last Christmas but I didn’t quite get there….. The image is by Happileigh Scrappin’ and I have created decoupage layers for dimension and added glitter to the clothing. The papers are from various pads and are Papermania, DCWV and Dovecraft. I think the chipboard shapes on the tag are from a Let’s Make Cards pack, ribbon and brad are from stash.

If you fancy taking part in Rudolph day too Sarn has added a linky to her blog post here

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-

Card Size – 6” Square
Papers – Papermania, DCWV and Dovecraft
Sentiment – Let’s Make Cards
Embellishments – Chipboard shapes LMC, ribbon from stash, gem brad from American Crafts, Stickles glitter glue, peel off stickers snowflakes
Tools – Scissors, 3d foam
Techniques - Decoupage

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
