Rudolph Day ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I decided to finish off the month with a Christmas card, it’s worth me being this organised believe me! Unusually for me no stamping all papercraft and here it is …

A 148mm square card
Will go in the post
I managed to photograph the bling!

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Country View Crafts Challenge Anything But Cute
Crimbo Crackers Challenge #152 Anything Goes

Scrappy Mo’s Rudolph Day Challenge Anything Christmas Goes

Lots of snippets of card were die cut for the hearts and then coloured with AquaTints. I coloured the chipboard bauables with Fired Brick Distress paint and once dry I added a light wash of the Pebeo Gold Inteference, I love the shine that adds to the baubles!! A snippet of Kraft card was ussed to die cut the banner and the sentiment was die cut from a left over snippet from another project. Quite a lot of snippets and some very old supplies went into creating this Christmas card, which is good lol! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
