Welcome to Rudolph Day

Morning peeps.

I know I don't normally post on a Thursday but I DO like to participate in Rudolph Day and this month that's on a Thursday ... this was a really quick card to make but there was drying time involved with both the paint and the stickles - nice for a change though, AND it's another Christmas card towards my 2016 quota - YAY!

My card
And a closer view of the sparkle
The front and back of my card and reverse of my envelope
The inside of my card and front of my envelope
Materials used:
  • 10cm square white, 250gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 8½ cm square
  • Two pieces of black card cut to 9.1cm square
  • I brayered Luna lights and Ranger dabber in pearl over one panel of white card and allowed it to dry
  • Once dry Chocolate Baroque snowflake and My Favourite Things sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Stardust stickles to highlight, including tracing the sentiment to really twinklify it!
