It's April 25th....

... and that means that eight months today it will be Christmas Day! It also means that today is Rudolph Day at Scrappymo's, of course, so here is this month's Rudolph Day Christmas Card. 
 
 

For this card  I used a Darice folder to emboss the snowy sky and a die from an X-cut Build a Scene set for the village scene.
I stamped the sentiment onto vellum using Stazon ink and cut it out with fancy scissors then attached it by folding it over the die cut panel and sticking at the back. The stamp was a magazine freebie a few years ago and sadly like many of the freebies, it isn't great quality and has developed a split diagonally across the middle which I had to fill in on the stamped image with a permanent marker. I do love the freebies from magazines, they are often right up to the minute, but I suppose at the price they can't always be expected to last very long, it's just a bonus when one does!

  3. This is a lovely wintry scene, the village looks great against the embossing. This is a clever way to add the sentiment, I'm always looking for new ideas. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT

  6. What a beautiful snowy scene. Loving the snowy village houses on the hill with the beautiful EF behind.
    The vellum sentiment was a great idea...it looks so good here.
    You are so right about the freebie...they are meant to be a little burst of a treat...if they last, that is wonderful, if not, then you must use them while you can.
    I read if you switch them to be between pieces of duralar or mylar, then they last longer. IT is the cheap acetate sheets they come on, that cause them to fall apart.

    Thanks for taking part in the April Rudolph Days Challenge.
