March Rudolph Day

OK, it's a bit late - after all, Rudolph Day is the 25th of the month, but over at Scrappymos we have until the very end of the month to share a Christmas make. I had a hectic weekend with the grandchildren staying, so this is the first chance I've had to make my card which means I've had to combine several challenges or I'll be all behind. (Well if you've been unlucky enough to meet me in person you'll know that I really AM all behind, apart from the parts that ware way out in front, if you get my drift).


For this card I used two Nestabilities dies to create a frame which I cut and then ran through a Darice snow drift embossing folder. I stamped the sentiment on the piece of card that came out from the centre - I was going to call it "waste" but it's the kind of thing that never gets wasted, so I couldn't really call it that could I? Then die cut the holly and ivy from snippets of card. I placed it towards the top left of the card to try to balance the "weight" of the foliage, but once it was all in place it still looked unbalanced, so I added some ruled borders and a blingy gemstone - after all, you can't have Christmas without a bit of bling, even when you're being CAS, can you?

As well as Rudolph Days I am sharing this with
