Yay, it's 'Rudolph Days Challenge' time once again, and it runs until the end of the month over at ScrappyMo's!
Things were conspiring against me when I realised that I hadn't made a Christmas card for my entry. Lagging a bit behind on my monthly totals, I whipped up four the same in double quick time but they're embarrassingly simple so I do feel a bit of a fraud.
- tall slim deep red slightly metallic card blank
- a topper from a load made by KanBan that I found in a box (years old!) whilst looking for something else, just glued in place. In real life the turquoise is a lovely shiny metallic finish
- the sentiment was a long repetitive strip on the sheet of toppers, so I just snipped it into sections, trimmed one edge and then also glued that in place
Even with such a simple card (how I started out on the card making journey many years ago) I did forget to do one thing! It doesn't show much in real life but the camera picks up every little detail - I would normally have run a matching marker around the edge of the topper and also the sentiment strip - just so the white 'core' of the card doesn't show. If you try this, make sure you use just normal markers (I use some very old Whispers pens) - Pro markers and such tend to bleed and might well ruin your topper!
