Rudolph Day Challenge where the idea is to make at least one Christmas card each month. Of course my plan is always to make more but it doesn't always happen, still any Christmas cards made early save a panic driven rush when it comes time to send them. The challenge starts on the 25th and runs till the end of the month. Of course it is a short month this time so only tomorrow left to join in.
This is a 13cm. square one layer card. All the stamps except the greeting are Cardio, some I have had for while and some I bought at the NEC show in November. To start with I masked around the area for the scene with post it notes and stamped the tiny elements and added some light colouring with distress inks and cut and dry foam. After removing the post its I stamped the stag partly out of the frame, and the trees beside it, using first and second generation inking. I'm not entirely happy with the black stamping and I think I will try it again using my stamping platform to get better definition. The greeting is from a set of stamps that were free with a magazine. I added some glitter to the snow scene with Stardust Stickles.
