Rudolph Day Cards

Morning Everyone,

It's not too late to share these cards made for this month's Rudolph Day challenge hosted by our lovely Maureen at Scraps of Life by Scrappymo!

I've upcycled a couple of cards received for Christmas 2016!

To make this one all I did was trim the topper down and edge it with silver - I drew a line using a ruler and an embossing pen, added the silver powder and heat embossed it to create the edging. The background is one of my Gelli plate prints stamped with snowflakes and embossed with the same silver powder.

This card was made in much the same way but this time I stamped snowflakes on both the trimmed topper and the background and added a few pink enamel dots for embellishment.

Supplies used:
- white card bases
- the Christmas card toppers
- the Gelli plate prints
- stamps -  from 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' set and  Inkadinkado 94646 
- Versamark ink pad and American Crafts embossing pen
- Heat It Up embossing powder

That's it for Rudolph Day this month.

Take care everyone.

Beautiful upcycling, Elizabeth.
Of your this upcycling work is made even nicer by those gorgeous backgrounds!

I will drop you an email tomorrow. I am attending a card making day today. The kind that start at 10 am and end at 10 pm. I am going to little snippets of time and then home for a rest to elevate my leg and then back over, again and again. Luckily my doctor approved it as Al thinks it is far too much for me. The beauty of it is that the crop is only 2 blocks away so it is not far to get home and get my leg elevated.

I will send some good positive info for your husband in the email. Hopefully, it will help him to decide.

Thanks for taking part in the June Rudolph Days Challenge.
