March Rudolph Day Card

Hello there, thanks for popping in! It's a late card for ScrappyMo's March Rudolph Day I have to share today.
As I've been finding it difficult getting back into the crafting groove of late I thought I'd give myself a challenge that might just flick the switch again! That was to try the layering technique I normally use on photos when creating a scrap page on the LOTV Cute Square for this card. I think it worked quite well. All the papers are from Kaisercraft Christmas Collections 6" paper pad ... it's an old one so I'm not sure it's still available. I cut the scalloped edge and berry printed strip from one of the sheets of patterned paper to add a bit of decoration to the layout.  The greeting and the holly embellishments were die-cut from snippets of red and green cardstock using Tattered Lace mini dies.


Off-cuts of the patterned paper were used to decorate the inside and back.

Having used a couple of teeny tiny snippets of red and green cardstock I'm submitting this to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 169 too.

And as it was the first outing for those Tattered Lace Mini Dies I'm submitting it to Darnell's NBUS challenge #4

I think this little exercise might have revived my crafting groove ... just :)

Wishing you all a lovely day.

Happy Crafting,

Hi Elizabeth! I hope I didn't refer to you as Veerle in my comment just posted, please delete if I did,am trying to catch up with the Playground. Needless to say I adore your card and Parsnip is sitting here wishing he was one of those bears :) Err, preferably not the snowman - although I think that's the closest!!

Hugs

Beautiful card, Elizabeth! The layered PP looks wonderful and those Tattered Lace dies are beautiful. I do not think I have seen these dies before...I really like the size of them...just right for cards!

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph days Challenge!

Beautiful card - the layers have worked so well. I'm afraid that when I try layering on cards they just look a mess!
