Winter Cottage - A Rudolph Day Card

Evening Everyone,

At last, a card! I can't remember the last time I made a card but as the temperature falls I am reminded that Christmas isn't so far away and it's time to get cracking on cards for the occasion.

This card is made entirely from scraps and snippets saved from bigger projects. The spattered background piece is the result of having too much ink leftover when making a Summer Challenge scrap page ... it would have been criminal not to use it up so I flicked it on to some white card and stashed it away in my odds and ends box.

Materials used:
- a selection of white and green card scraps
- a Scenic Stamps set, Woodland Cottage - a magazine freebie
- Memento Tuxedo Black and Versafine Olympia Green ink pads
- a selection of ProMarkers in brown, green and red colours
- X-cut Square nesting dies and The Works stitched & scalloped square die set
- Crystal Stickles

The little trees were stamped and then fussy cut out to create embellishment cluster and I used a fine brush to 'paint' the Stickles 'snow' on to the roof, etc.

As I'm not too late I'm submitting this card to Maureen's September Rudolph Days Challenge, over at Scraps of Life by Scrappymo.

 Have a lovely evening everyone.

You have created a pretty scene, Elizabeth. I think your wee cottage is lovely and the splatter background is amazing. I had not thought to do this rather than wash the ink or paint off the brush, I will be following this tip in the future!

Thank you for taking part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge.
