Last Saturday saw the first Rudolph Day challenge of 2014 over at Sarn's Stamping For Pleasure blog, but I didn't realise the 25th had come around so quick and missed it. However Sarn keeps the challenge open until the end of the month and she wants us to make at least two cards to enter this year, I am popping over with two more of my recycled cards.
For the first one I first cut out the part of the image I wanted to use with a Go Kreate oval die and then using some white card with silver sparkles in it I used a Dienamic fancy edged die to cut a frame for it. I folded some dark blue card to make a 5.5" square base card and stamped the Chocolate Baroque holly flourish on it with Versamark ink and embossed it with WOW silver powder.I stuck the oval image on with foam tape and added the sentiment, also from Chocolate Baroque, stamped onto a snippet of the white and silver card.
For the second one I used Nestabilities plain and scalloped dies to cut the image and mat. I covered the front of a dark green square card with some background paper, Papermania I think, after inking the edge with vintage photo Distress Ink .The greeting was cut with a Britania die. Both the mat and greeting were cut from snippets of gold glitter card so I am going to enter these at the Pixies Playground as well.
Thank you for taking a look and for all your comments which are much appreciated.
