Glittery Snowflake Christmas Card - Rudolph Days
I am here with a card I made for a different Christmas challenge recently, but never got it blogged! (Do you sense a pattern with all this flurry of end-of-month blog posts??? lol...) So here it is time for Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Days again and finally here is my card! Yay!!!
I used these fabulous glittery red and gold 7 POINTED snowflakes from my crafty pal, Karen Ladd. (THANKS, Karen!.....But what is with all these snowflakes having 7 points??? These and my own 7-point white ones that I still haven't used up!!!) I put the snowflakes through my Xyron Sticker Maker to make them adhere easily without gluing. (Do I get points for actually USING my Sticker Maker, instead of letting the adhesive dry up, thus rendering the entire little gadget useless??? Award them in the comments below....and please be generous! lol...)
I did a wintery white-on-white look with the dry embossed panel (Darice - Snowflakes folder) over a white card base. The sentiment stamp is a pretty one with that flourish, but I don't know what company it is from. I stamped with Versafine ink in Smokey Gray and matted the panel with a bit of red cardstock from my scrap bag. I think this makes a simple, but quite pretty Christmas card. I might make a few more of these with the other snowflakes in the pack!
Personally, I'm glad that the snowflakes are only on this card and not coming down outside. We had so much snow for so long this past winter that I honestly STILL find myself habitually looking out at night on the ground to see if there is any snow. It hasn't been very many weeks since we had several inches, so I am not completely insane!! (Emphasis on completely....Ha!) Thank you for your visit and sweet comments.

Thanks for entering your lovely crafting for CHNC challenge 339 – you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for June - I'd love to see it there too xReplyDelete
Haha! Okay, so you're a stickler for authenticity..but these 7 pointed snowflakes are beautiful none-the-less. Double points for using your sticker maker....or maybe even triple points! Ask me when I last used my poor old sticker maker, or better yet...don't. Isn't it silly how we hoard our supplies until they are either lost,or degrade in quality?? These glittery flakes look wonderful against your white background, and with the bold sentiment.ReplyDelete
