Rudolf Day January 17

Hello there,

Here we are with the first Rudolf Day challenge of the year at Scrappy Mo's.  It's also my birthday today, so it's a double celebration! :)

I'd like to share with you one of the cards that I made to send out last Christmas.



It's one of my favourite stamps by Crafty Individuals and the sentiment is by Inkylicious.  I made some on white card too but I preferred the cream as it gave the card more of a vintage feel.  The image is coloured with Distress inks and the umbrella was stamped a second time, then cut out and stuck on to give a little dimension.  I would usually raise it up more than this but I had to keep it reasonable flat to post it.

It's a fabulous way to keep going with your Christmas cards throughout the year and it's such a friendly challenge, so why not have a go yourself.

Happy Crafting x

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations - Coffee and Cream
Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Baby It's Cold Outside

  13. Many Happy Returns of The Day...Hope it's a good one?
    I sure have missed your lovely comments on my blog...You are always so kind and so very thoughtful. It is so good to be back crafting x I love what you've done with your card. The sepia tones against the red umbrella is so gorgeous and I love it. Also...so clever to use the sentiment with this stamp...I tend to think of it with a snowy scene but I won't know! Thank you for the inspiration and enjoy your day! xxx

  16. Oh how I love this Rudolph Day card!!! I too love the vintage feel it has and I am loving that image. Yes, we have to keep things fairly flat to mail so it doesn't cost us an arm and a leg! It already does as it is in the US! Hugs Brenda
