It's time for Mo's Rudolph Days Challenge for October - it runs from today until the end of the month. And, there's only one more left after this one until the real countdown begins!
The basis for this card was lurking in my box of saved Christmas cards, and I think it's been hiding there for a few years now. A really quick and easy card, and my entry for Mo's challenge:
- 4.25" x 5.5" cream card blank
- I made the card blank from a 6" square card and used the largest die in the Lil' Inkers 'Stitched Rectangles' set of dies to emboss the stitched outline before cutting it down to size. It's easy to do this, it only embosses the stitched outline and doesn't cut a rectangle like the other dies in the set - really useful too. So long as you remember to butt the die right up against the spine of the card - then you just need to trim the other sides to suit
- the Christmas tree image from a small Christmas card, just trimmed in proportion to the card blank I intended to add it onto
- glued the image onto a slightly larger snippet of deep red satin mirri card, left on the desk from the Hunkydory cards I made
- then glued the completed two-layer panel to the card front - no sentiment needed of course
Done! The camera does tell porkies though as in real life the cream colours on the topper and the card blank are identical.
I only made one card of course, haven't managed to train friends who send us some beautiful shop bought cards to make sure they all send the same designs - or at least lots of three the same :)
