May Rudolph Days

Wow I can't believe that it's time for the Rudolph Days challenge again already. It seems to have got here very quickly. For this card I followed a tutorial over on a friends FaceBook page, It was easy to make and used a leafy stencil (free on the front of a magazine)and two Lavinia Stamps plus the Christmas stamp (which also came from a free set on a magazine sometime ago). The berries where coloured with a red pen and then I popped glossy accents over the top to give them a shine.

I now have four of these cards to pop into my box for Christmas, which is rushing towards us.

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

Take care and stay safe

Love this card, Sue. It is stunning. The use of the shadowed stencil behind the images looks wonderful/. Of course the mirri card looks it a sateen look?
Hope you are both well. We are doing good here. Al has been busy enlarging our cement patio area by adding a bricked edging to it ?He had to remove some of the river rock we had previously put down around the big planters, so it has been a lot of heavy work. His new work gains some extra space to the usable area of the patio. Perhaps enough to add a hot tub!!!

Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph Days Challenge.

This is excellent inspiration for what enormous impact a simple stenciling behind a main image can add to a design! Thank you, Sue! It's really stunning with the shiny gold mat!! Keep well! Hugs, Darnell
