Christmas Candle Card - Rudolph Day Challenge October 2016

It's a very long time since I joined in with Mo's Rudolph Day Challenge which runs from today until the end of the month. Truth is I should have been joining in every month because there's only one more Rudolph Day left and my Christmas card box is looking very empty - help!

For this card I've gone for the easy option and used a Penny Black Stickeroo - so useful when time is short.
I think/hope this is a card that a man would be pleased to receive. 

Here's how it was made:
  • the base is a plain white one measuring 4" x 5¾" finished size - the orientation is portrait.- covered with a dark grey with a very subtle lighter grey check patterned paper - maker/design unknown.  
  • next the band adhered to the middle was created from a length of gold edged red ribbon wrapped around a piece of yellow cardstock finished with a decorative edge punch. 
  • to make the topper the Stickeroo was matted on to dark red cardstock and then adhered using dimensional sticky pads.
  • the greeting was embossed on to a scrap of the red cardstock, using VersaMark and white embossing powder. It was then matted on to a snippet of the yellow cardstock.
  • to finish a sprinkling of sequins was added to two corners.
Et voila! A very quick card. Just a few more to make to catch up - if not it will be a trip to the card shop for me!!

Good to see you in the challenge again, Elizabeth!
This is a lovely card. I really like the wired ribbon on your card. The gold edge has a real sparkle.

Now I want to check my snippets of wired ribbon to see what I have stashed away!
Thanks for taking part in the October Rudolph days Challenge.
