Hi, Friends......

I am here with a quick post to share a Christmas card for Rudolph Days at Scrappy Mo's

It's another "Scraps and Strays" card.....where I used one of my sparkly molten backgrounds that has been sitting around in my stash for several years and a stray piece from a Winnie & Walter freebie. Even the sentiment panel was an extra that I didn't need from a previous project. This card reminds me of black licorice.....YUM!!!

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1 - Holiday Mint
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Oval STAX die set
My Mind's Eye - All is Bright stamp set (sadly discontinued)
Versamark Ink
Ranger - Embossing Powder in silver, regular grade
Pretty Pink Posh - Sparkling Clear Mix sequins
Core'dinations Cardstock
Twine from my stash
For Background:
Darice - Snowflakes and Flourishes embossing folder
Distress Ink in Black Soot - for inking the inside of the embossing folder before putting through Big Shot.

Versamark Ink brayered over entire background
Various embossing powders (solids, metallics, and glittered) for the background

Hope you enjoyed seeing my card!! Thank you for stopping by.

  3. Such a cool background -- had to smile at your reference to black licorice! (I love it too!)

    BTW - we've been experiencing trouble with the dashboard this month and haven't been able to write posts or edit comments. Hoping things get fixed soon... or we find another solution
