February Rudolph Day

It't time for another Rudolph Day challenge and another of my small upcycled, snippet cards - this one also used a magazine freebie!  I'm entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'C is for Clean', the Holly and Ivy Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and The Merry Christmas Challenge 'Always Anything Goes + Christmas'.


Card blank: 4" x 4" white matt
Image: Upcycled Christmas card
Punch: Woodware 2" square
Embossing: Festive Wishes (magazine freebie)
Snippets: White matt and red mirri card

To make this quick and simple Christmas card I embossed a snippet of white card, layered it onto red mirri and attached it to the card blank.  I punched the robin image from a Christmas card and layered it onto red mirri before attaching it to the centre of the card with foam tape.

I agree with brenda...this looks elegant and so lovely. The red mirri card really sets off that pretty robin.

A great upcycled card!

Thanks for taking part in the February Rudolph Days Challenge.

Robins are one of my favourite images on Christmas cards and this is great upcycling with that really pretty freebie embossing folder you used for the background Kath, and I love that red mirri card you have been using too. x

Hi Kath

A great Rudolph Day card. Love to see robins. We have one that visits our bird table most days.

It actually looks like a Christmas card outside our window today. Just a sprinkling so far .. .. but the promise of more to come!!! Lovely to look at but that is all.

Hope all is well with you.

Love Jules xx

Lovely Liz. You can't beat a robin for a cheery card at Christmas. I miss those cheeky little birds. My friend who lives a little way up the mountain has them in her garden, but it is not quite cold enough for them where I am. Kate x

I love this beautiful robin perched on the berry branch. I like that he stands out against the simplicity of the lovely white embossed background. TFS & Hugs
