Rudolph Day - September 25th 2012

Yikes, only three months to Christmas - so this month's Rudolph Day over at Sarn's panicked galvanised me into a swift batch card making session - made six of these, all the same:
I used:

- A6 white card stock

-  dark blue backing card

- image stamp called 'Travelling Far' by Stampendous and sentiment stamp by Personal Impressions from the 'Many Greetings' set - both stamped using Memento 'Paris Dusk'

These cards will be ideal for friends and family who will appreciate the real message of Christmas, which often gets lost in the Christmas commercialism and general frenzy. I kept them simple, partly to whip up some quickly, and also not to detract from what I think is a lovely image.

Why not join in? You know it makes sense, and Sarn has a lovely stamp set as this month's prize.

I'm also entering this into Craft Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge as well where the theme this week is 'Nativity' - to use an image or words which reflect the real meaning of Christmas.

And also this month's Going Buggy challenge, run by the very amusing Enfys, where the theme is non-traditional Christmas colours ie. not red and green.

  1. What a lovely card focusing on the real meaning of Christmas.

    I make cards for all tastes and my Mum and many of my relatives would only appreciate a Christmas card with a religious theme.
    My Mum always says it has to have at the very least an angel...but a nativity is even better...she would like you! teehee

  11. Yes well, it is not very often these days that people remember the real meaning of Christmas and these are fabulous cards to set the story straight.
    Love the Paris mist colour, looks more classy than black.
