RUDOLF DAYS GD ...................JULY 2017

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Today starts the
over at Scrappymo's blog.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month till the end of the month.
As always it is anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
Only one entry per person.
Maureen always offer a lovely prize to the winner.
As I am GD this month here is my card.


This is the largest size Spellbinders Grand Circle die I used to make this round easel card.
The papers came from My Craft Studio CD Wonderful in White.
The die used is Tattered Lace Glisten in the Snow, and Christmas Flora.
I cut it out twice and glued it together to make it more sturdy, and then sprayed it with aerosol glue and then glittered it.
I also decoupaged the bow, and the bow tails.
I added a Snippet of yellow card behind the windows to make it look like the lights are on in the church.
The sentiment is a stamp I won on the Snippets playground.
I used both pearls and gems on this card as I do love to use them both for finishing touches.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.

A beautiful card Jenny. The bright blue and white is really striking. You have used a lovely range of dies. I don't often go for Tattered lace dies as I find them a bit too fussy, but these are really nice. Well done. Kate x
