January Rudolph Day

For the past few years I've had a theme for my Rudolph Day Cards.  In 2017 I used images from a LOTV Art Pad, in 2018 my cards were 4" x 4", in 2019 all cards had a Christmas tree on them and last year I made cards with wet and/or dry embossing.  As we are having a thrifty 2021 I have chosen 'Upcyling' as my Rudolph Day theme this year.

To make this card I used:
     5.5" x 4.25" white hammer card blank
     My Favorite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics', Memory Box 'Lydia Ornament', 'Traditional Ornament' & 'Crisp Bows' dies
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Snippet of white hammer card
     Blue glitter paper (from inside a Christmas card) and dark blue card with glitter spots (from the front of a Christmas card)

I am entering the following challenges:
     Christmas Crafts All Year Round - Something that Starts with A and/or B (I have used B for Bauble)
     Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - No Sentiment
     Fezzwig's Festive Frolics - Anything Festive Goes
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies - January Challenge
     Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
     Rudolph Day Challenge - January challenge

I sometimes use a theme to make a set of cards for the month, but I couldn't keep it up all year! But what a good idea to use recycled items. I usually start the year with a set of recycled cards from the ones I received this year, but I haven't got around to that yet. Kate x
