Rudolph Day!

Good Morning to you All.

Today as it's 25th of the month it's time to enter a Christmas card into Mo's Rudolph Day Challenge on her Scraps of Life blog.

It's the last Rudolph Day Challenge for the year.

My card was made with a Christmas paper napkin.

I chose the area I wanted to use and carefully cut out a rough square which I stuck with a glue stick onto a square of white card then trimmed the edges of the napkin.

I put double sided adhesive paper over the top, covered with glitter and trimmed it up.

I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the background.

Thank you for your visit.  Happy Crafting!

Very novel use of a serviette . .. extremely effective! I just love this fresh looking card, especially with the gingham ribbon.

HAPPY RUDOLPH DAY.

LOVE that sparkly focal image Barb! I used to use napkins too, but haven't done it for a long time . . . maybe I should, yours looks fantastic! I always enjoy seeing red and white together too, such a fabulous contrast! Have a great day! Hazel xx

Gorgeous Barb!! Kudos on working with such a delicate medium as a napkin. I recently did the same and had to battle it, but did finally tame it :)
