Rudolph Day

Last Rudolph Day challenge for this year, its been a great challenge , many thanks for Mo for running it. For my card this time I've used a lot of die cuts, I was thinking it would be a quick way to make a batch of cards but it took for ever to do all the die cutting for six cards and my room looked likes there had been a blizzard with all the dots out of the centre die, I have used four dies, one embossing folder and two stamps on here, I simply had to make some cards with this gorgeous Crafty Individuals Robin stamp, coloured quite simply using blending sponges and memento inks.

  1. Oh Joan what a lovely combination, great embossing with circular sentiment nicely juxtaposed with the pretty Christmas bird, well done!!
