Rudolph Days

I'm here to share my first Christmas Cards of 2019, which is also my entry into this months Rudolph Days Challenge. I made my backgrounds using some Clarity card that I found in my cupboard and some Chipped Sapphire Distress ink blended all over the card. Then with a splatter brush and watered down gesso I splattered the backgrounds. I used a sentiment from Chocolate Baroque at the top of the card and then added my die cuts which were from a die that I found online and really very reasonable to buy. As it wasn't too large I was able to use up some of my gold mirri off cuts from the scrap box too.






Thank you for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

I love how you've managed to utilize your gold mirror card bits to make this set of cards! Wonderful background designs too! NJ on them all!

Brilliant bit of mass production here using that great die with odd bits of mirri card. Love the way you made the background too.

Lovely cards Sue. A great way of using up all those odd bits of mirri card which are too big to part with.

Wonderful cards Sue, gorgeous design and I love the die-cuts xx

I like those die-cuts. I don't recognise them and am guessing maybe they are from China. I have some nice ones from there, but unfortunately they don't usually send to Spain so I have to have them sent to my son to forward to me, so it takes quite a while. But they are very, very reasonable. You did well with your snow spatters. Mine always end up with a big splash somewhere, and not much else. A great set of cards. Kate x
