September Rudolph Day


Is it really that time again already? There aren't many Rudolph Days left now until the day itself!
This month I've taken the challenge from Sarn to make two christmas cards for "Rudolph Day".
I've used the new spellbinders die on both cards and stamped a Creative Expressions stamp which I embossed in silver. I've also used the Creative Expressions Snow on one of the layers and then run it through an embossing folder. The first card I did the double sided glue all over the die but for the second one I limited it to the main bulk of the die cut.
Both cards feature my newest die, the little holly leaves from Sue Wilson - I can see I will be using these a lot!
The image on the first card is from Pink Petticoat and I added some "ice" from Crafting.co.uk.

there's lots of texture and interest on these cards. I can see the little holly sprig will be a useful one too. Kate x

Now these say snow and ice to me! Gorgeously wintery. Yes, I suppose it is time to think of Christmas cards - the shops are already full of them of course!

Thank you so much for that pretty embroidery Lin. I will put it to good use. I always thought I'd like to try ribbon embroidery - but of course I've never got round to it. xxx

Hi Lynn, your two cards are beautiful - the die-cuts you've used are fab. And I've noted that there aren't too many more Rudolph Days left :) Elizabeth xx
