Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my
friends, and visitors.
I know I am a bit late with my Rudolf Day cards,
but there were other challenges that collided with
it on the last 2 days, and I wanted to also join those challenges too.
So as the saying goes better late than never.
The Rudolf Challenge is to make 2 Christmas
cards, and post them between the 25th of the
month and the 30th of the month, or the end of
I think this is a really good idea as you get
quite a few cards done before your Christmas
rush of cards.
So for anyone interested in joining in you
will find the link HERE .
Now to my 2 cards.
The first card was a just under 6"x6" size.
I used First Edition Gilded Winter 6x6 paper
I cut the front cover shorter and added some
double sided sticky paper to the part that was
longer and used gilding mica flakes on it.
I then added a border in pearlised embossed
card cut out with the Spellbinders Fleur De
Lis Accents Die.
I also used this die for the design round the
sentiment, and the sentiment was a freebie in
a craft magazine.
The tree die is Sue Wilson Die, and I drew with
a pencil around the die and cut it out in mirri
card, and then used Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow
in the center.
My 2nd card is just over 5"x5" size.
I stamped all around the edges with border
stamp, and Pine Needles Distress Ink.
The paper is from a 12x12 sheet of Christmas
paper from Hobbycraft.
I stamped a reindeer, and coloured it in with promarkers.
The sentiment was stamped and cut out with
a Spellbinders Die Frame One after covering
my card with sticky double sided paper, I then
peeled back the sticky sheet, and put C/S Iced
Snow all over it.
I then added some C/S Gold Glue Dots to the
Phew I hope you haven't fallen asleep with all
Thank you for you visit and comments.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
