Rudolph Day - April
I actually made two cards before our little away break last week so that they were ready to post when we came home, but we didn't get back till Friday evening, and yesterday was a bit hectic with all our stuff to sort out, washing and shopping to do and a Baby Shower in the afternoon for my Granddaughter whose third baby is likely to arrive next month.
I loved this image and knew straight away that I would have to make a new card with it. I trimmed the image close to the gold edging, the little corners are part of the picture, and added it to a red card mat. The backing paper is from a 6x6 pad that I think I bought in The Works. I chose this because it had a vintage look to it and the colour and style complimented the picture. I trimmed it just slightly smaller than the 15 cm ivory square base card and added a piece of brown and gold ribbon before sticking it down. The text was added using Chocolate Baroque stamps and Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I fixed the image over the ribbon with thin foam pads and with the last tiny piece of ribbon tied a knot to the side of it. To finish off I used a gold gel pen to highlight the top design and added a red gem to the centre.
I loved the colours and sparkle in this image and simply trimmed it down a bit and stuck it to a mat of brown backing paper. The base card is 5x7 used landscape style with the fold at the top, and the front covered with paper from a Dovecraft christmas pack. I cut two corner decorations using a Memory Box die ( I think ) from brown pearl card and fixed them in opposite corners and added gold coloured gems.
I will now go and link this up at
