March Rudolph Day's Challenge

Yay, two more Christmas cards done!  A really quick post as I am running out of time to join in with the Rudolph Day challenge - I am late again!  Two cards the same but in different colours.




The wreath stamp is by Chloe Creative Cards, I have had it for ages and not used it before!  I stamped both in Versemark then embossed with silver and gold detail embossing powder respectively.  Edged with more embossing, added toning stickles then punched the labels out of snippets of matching card and stamped and embossed the Inkadinkadoo sentiment.  Two corners on each were rounded with my corner chomper.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

ScrappyMo's - March Rudolph Days challenge
Make My Monday - Going round in circles
Pixies Snippets Playground 222 - use snippets

All these are fab blogs, definitely worth a visit!

Thank you so much for popping by today!  I really appreciate it.  Take care. Christine xxx

These are both so creative. I just can't decide which colour a like the best. Decisions, decisions. I know what you mean about time. I have a post I'm racing against the clock to finish but the paint isn't dry yet and I need to hot glue the pieces on. Eek only a few hrs left gotta fly. Hugs Mrs A.

Both so lovely. This embossed stamp has a retro feel to it. I think I like the silver best!

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.

Lovely cards and the stamp you used is gorgeous, especially embossed with the ultra fine powder to give it an elegant sparkle. Thanks for joining in with March's Rudolph Day

It never ceases to amaze me as to how different a design can look when the colours are changed! Both cards are really beautiful but for me it always has to be red!! Hugs, Anne xx

Wow Chris, two fabulous cards here! Wonderful embossing - and as others have said it's amazing how the same design in different colours can look so err, different!
