Rudolph Day August

It's the 25th of the month again,
and time to play in this month's Rudolph Day Challenge.
It's a great incentive of building up your stash before the christmas rush.

If you've been visiting (and a big thanks if you have),
you may have noticed I've made a 'few' xmas cards recently.

I decided to save this one as my entry,
as it wasn't really part of my Bundle Showcases.

I love the Vertical Greetings stamp set,
and I thought this little topiary tree looked a bit like an xmas one.
I stamped in red and used some new red GLITTER embossing powder (!),
stamped again in Espresso for the 'tub',
and sightly bowed the banner sentiment so it stood out.

I happened to have some triangle snippets of the Candy Cane DSP,
so I laid one to the side under the topper.
A sequin star tops the tree.

Happy Rudolph Day!

I might visit the Snippets Playground as I used snippets of 
paper and card for this.
Do take a look at both blogs if you can, 
there's some super talent out there.

  1. Love how you have thought outside the box with that stamp Lesley. Great Rudolph Day card.

    Happy Rudolph Day.

    Hugs, SArn xxx

  2. I love how you've used this stamp, I always find long thin stamps a challenge in themselves. A fantastic card.

  3. The triangled pattern paper gives the card such depth and really pulls your eye into the topirory tree. Love the rich red colour too. Hugs Mrs A.

  4. There is something about this tree that feels Christmasy. It doesn't help that the first card I ever saw made with this tree was a christmas card. Your card just embraces the heck out of the CHristmas feel and takes it to the next level. Awesomeness!

  5. Fabulous card, the tree does look very Christmassy and a great banner.
    Like the way you have used the paper.
