June Rudolph Day

This is my final Rudolph Day card as part of ScrappyMo's design team and I've used a lovely die cut which ScrappyMo sent me in a surprise package.  I'm entering this card into the Merry Monday 'Peace, Joy and/or Love' challenge where we need to use one or more of the words - I've managed two!  I'm also entering Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Die: Creative Expressions 'Christmas Tree Greetings'
Card: Green matt, red glitter
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Painted Poinsettias'
Other: Red nailheads

I trimmed the paper, layered it onto green card and attached it to the card front.  ScrappyMo had die cut this beautiful image from red glitter card, so all I had to do was attach it to the centre of the card. To balance the floral image on the paper I added three nailheads to the top corner of the card.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's entries into this challenge and don't forget there is a fabulous prize for one lucky winner who will be chosen at random - this month it's a Memory Box Holly Leaf Border die.

Fabulous card, Kath, love the die cut. I saw this die in a craft shop a while ago and resisted the tempted to buy it. After seeing it on your beautiful card, I think it might have to go on my wish list! xx

Pretty backing paper, and such an elegant die, so that it doesn't need much, but you nailed it with the nailheads xxx
