Rudolph Day

As today is 25th of the month it's time again to join in at Scrappy Mo's blog for the Rudolph Day Challenge with a Christmas card.

Mo holds her Challenge on the 25th of each month and always offers a lovely prize for the lucky winner.

After embossing the background I rubbed on some gold metallic Rub Ons which unfortunately looks grey in the photo.  I added a tiny gem to the star and some Stickles around the edge for sparkle.

The tree is cut from a die which came as a freebie with a magazine last year.

My card was very quick to make so I made several using scraps of gold, silver, red green and blue card.

I'd therefore also like to join in again with the girls in Di's Snippets Playground Week 200.

  5. This is really pretty. I like the look of the tree against this embossed background. A friend gave me two or three of these backgrounds and I did not know what to use them with. You have given me a great idea.

    The metallic paste looks wonderful on your tree.

    Thanks for taking part in the October Rudolph days Challenge.

  15. Gorgeous card Barb! What a wonderful freebie you got with that die too - and such a clever idea to mount it onto the embossed background which seems to be just made for the die size! Lovely work.

  29. Wonderful background with the extra detail of distressing the embossing to show it off better. Love that you used this great sticker & it surely looked gold on my monitor. Didn't realize it _was_ a sticker until reading your post, as there is a die that looks like this! Brilliant card...I love it. The distressed white background really glams up the pretty tree too. TFS & Hugs
