Rudolph Day

Hello Peeps

Brrr!  Is it me or has it gone colder since the Storm?

Just dashing in to show you my C Cards for this month's Rudolph Day.  Isn't this a gorgeous stamp?  My lovely friend Kim gave it to me when she visited earlier this month and I just had to use it.  If anyone knows what make it is I would be grateful to know.

Very simply done.  I stamped it with embossing ink and then embossed it with Stampenduous silver embossing powder. I layered it with some silver cardstock onto a black background.  It looks kinda navy on the above photo but I assure you it is black!
You can just see the shimmer and detail here.  I decided no other elements were needed on this and got carried away and made 8 cards.  I rummaged through the Snippets drawer to find any black cardstock that was the right size with a little trimming in places. I shall pop it into the Snippets Playground too.

Don't forget if you wish to have a go at the Rudolph Day you have until Thursday night.  Don't leave it too late as you may forget when you are out on your broomsticks!

TTFN and thanks for calling by.

Oops by that I mean the silver on black, not that it doesn't look stunning as a touch of navy tint...

Stunning bit of embossing work going on there. I hope I have my wolly jumper on in the hen house.

Loving the look of the ornate silver against the black background. Great that you were able to make eight! Your finished Christmas cards stash must be looking great.
