Rudolph Days - May 2017

It's Rudolph Days again over at ScrappyMo's - and this is the card I made:
I used:

- 4.25" x 5.5" white card blank

- snippet of white card, trimmed to slightly smaller than the card front and set aside

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'nature's splendor' sheet. Stuck the stickeroo onto a snippet of white card and then die cut it using a die from the 'Stitched Squares' set of dies, made by The Works (8 dies for £6 a set!)

- then I spotted a snippet of turquoise Core'dinations card still lying on my desk from another project - which was already backed with Stick-It adhesive sheet, wahoo!

- die cut the turquoise layer using a Spellbinders die from the 'Lacey Squares' set

- worked out where I wanted the sentiment to go and stamped it onto the 'set aside' piece of white card using the Misti, Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and a stamp from the Inkylicious 'Seasons Greetings' sentiments set

- glued the stitched edge die cut image onto the turquoise square and then glued them onto the white panel

- backed the white panel with white fun foam and glued it onto the card front

A fast and simple card as time isn't really on my side at the moment, but I couldn't let one of my favourite challenges slip past without making a Christmas card to play along. Plus it all helps with the total I'm aiming to make this year.

You have until the end of the month to join in with Rudolph Days - go on, you know you want to :)

Love this, Di, a beautiful scene. The turquoise framed image really stands against the white. Think I might need a trip to the Works sometime soon to see what bargain dies they have. x

This is very pretty Di and I love the stickeroo topper, and the lacey squsres die cut frame, and the bright and beautiful colours stand out really well against the white card.

This card looks so lovely, Di.That is such a beautiful image on that Stickeroo.
The blue matting and die cut mat you chose, really pop off the white background.

Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph Days Challenge.

Pat said...

Sorry Di, with my GD hat on I should have thanked you for joining in with the challenge. x

Sandy said...

So pretty. It's unexpected to see those pastels on a Christmas card, and that topper had me thinking you'd been sponging for hours.

I love this card Di, the scene is so peaceful and reminds me of dusk after it has snowed a foot or so and you can see the silhouettes of the bare trees. It is so peaceful and serene and beautiful as is your card. Hugs, Brenda
