January Rudolph Day

I made this card for the January Rudolph Day challenge, using a pre-coloured image from the LOTV 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad.  There are ten images in the pad which I will use for my Rudolph Day cards this year, with a surprise post in November!

I'm also entering Die Cut Divas 'Make your Project Sentiment Free', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'No Sentiment' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Festive Foilage'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Standard Circles Large' and 'Classic Scalloped Circles Large'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Dark green matt
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Festive Trimmings'
Other: Dark red nailheads, Wink of Stella

I layered green paper onto dark green card and attached it to the card blank.  The image was die cut and embossed, layered onto a die cut and embossed scalloped circle and attached to the centre of the card.  I added nailheads to the top and bottom corners and highlighted the wreath with a Wink of Stella.

This is very pretty Kath and the LOTV toppers and papers all coordinate beautifully and it is such a shame they are no longer available. x
