Another Christmas Card

Grey skies equal bad photos!
Not the sharpest or the brightest but you get the general idea!
Another card made for my own stash.
Simple and quick too, so may make a couple more.....

Rudolph stamped in Adirondack 'Latte' ink then clear embossed.

Snowflake flurry embossing folder.

Wrapped some red and white twine round the bottom to break up the expanse of white (which I had to leave cos I wanted it to fit onto a 7 x 5 inch card base!)  and stamped a small sentiment onto a tag shape and tied to the twine.

Stuck it onto red card then layered it with foam pads onto the white base.

Added a larger red sparkly for Rudolph's nose and three of the tiniest red sparklies you have ever seen in your life which were at the bottom of the gem jar - I spent ten minutes chasing them round the bottom of the glass jar to get them out and then another 20 minutes trying to pick them up off the craft mat to stick them on!

Thanks for taking the time to visit - we have quite a nice day here so am away to the Club to play in the 'Frostbite' League (suitably wrapped up of course!). Have a great day whatever you're doing. x
