I said I'd be back with a card for Rudolph Day ...
Rudolph Day challenge for August ... with only 3 more Rudolph Days to go to Christmas, and nowhere near enough cards made, this is one challenge I cannot afford to miss.
I know it's a pretty unusual colour combination for Christmas, and I don't really know why I chose to team the ivy stamped topper with the purple card but I think it works, especially with the lovely 'tartan' ribbon I found in my collection.
Not much to it really, just quick and simple - the only thing that took any time was colouring in the ivy with an olive green Promarker. This is a digital stamp from The Scrapbook Sisters Digital Stamps - bought and printed out way back in July 2011 and only now being coloured ... shameful! I was able, by using MS Publisher, to create a frame with the ivy corner, leaving an area in the centre for the greeting stamp - from the much used Magical Christmas Stamp Set by Anita's. Crystal Stickles has been added to the stars around the greeting, shame it hasn't shown up in the photo. I did try taking the shot from various angles and still no twinkle :(
The topper is matted on to purple card which has a textured pattern to it ... bought from Create & Craft a couple of years ago too ... more of the forgotten and neglected stash!!!
The ribbon wasn't forgotten though, I was just waiting for just the right project to adorn ... read that it's so pretty I couldn't bear to parted with it :)
That's my crafting done for the day. I wonder what tomorrow will bring ... I haven't decided yet :)
I'm off to catch the new drama beginning at 9pm, What Remains. If the trailer is anything to go by it should be intriguing.
Whatever you are doing this evening I hope it's enjoyable.
