It is Santa's Head Elf here sharing with you a NBUS Christmas Stamp on this auspicious day. Why auspicious? Because it is the last Rudolph Day before the Big One!!!!
So to kick this Rudolph Day off here is my first card....
Isn't that stamp just gorgeous!! My lovely friend from over the water sent it to me. You know who you are. MWAH!! It is by Stampenduous and is called Fireside Ivy. I actually got the inspiration to Viv and I hope I have done her card justice!
So what I did was to stamp it on a background card with Versamark and embossed it with white WOW embossing powder. I did the same again on some vellum. Then I took my oval die and cut out the middle of the vellum piece before placing it over the top of the background card and securing it with brads. I then mounted the whole thing onto the card, added some faux stitching with my Sharpies white chalk pen and added some ribbon with a little stamped tag (Hero Arts stamp).
Now what do you suppose I did with the vellum centres that were cut out? Yep, like a good little Santa Elf I cut some more ovals from plain card and tied them together to make tags for my parcels. How is that for recycling my Snippets?
Right that is all from me. I must get busy as the Chief Elf (i.e. the chap in the red suit) keeps going on about deadlines etc. He is a bit tetchy right now!!
Off to share this with my buddy Mo and of course my other buddy Parsnip down at the Snippets Playground.
Thanks for calling by. Will pop over later once I have done my dance class.
