Rudolph Day November 2014

Its the last Rudolph day this year - I wish I had started joining in earlier!  Its fabulous fun!  Its Sarn's last time hosting this challenge - she has been wonderful!  I will certainly be joining in next year with ScrappyMo. Here are my two cards:




Both cards are made the same way - I used a Cuttlebug bauble die to cut the shape out of the white card then I popped the white card over some patterned paper so the paper shows through the bauble shape and around the edges then matted over some more white card then on the base card.  The Snowflakes are cut with a Sizzix die, the ribbon with a Crafters Companion Die'sire Die and the sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set called Snowman Christmas.  I also added a few shiny stones for bling.

If you want more of a Christmas fix - head over to look at what Rudolph Day has to offer!

Thank you very much for visiting me!  I love it which you do and really value your comments!  Take care.  Christine xx

I love the layout, Christine! And I think it's always inspiring to see the same card with different colors/patterns! It's a great way to keep the process from becoming boring as you're creating! Hugs, Darnell

Hope you will drop by my blog in 2015. The Scrappymo version of Rudolph Days will be held from the 25th till the end of each month!

Great cards! I've seen a couple of these ornament cut outs with designer paper behind them. It makes for a neat and easy technique. Great that you added snowflakes to the overall design for added zing.
