February Rudolph Day

A big 'Thank You' to ScrappyMo for inviting me to be her Guest Designer for the February Rudolph Day challenge.  I'm using another precoloured image from the Lili of the Valley 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad. There are ten different images in the Art Pad, I used one for the January challenge and plan to use the other images for the next eight challenges, with something different in November!

I'm entering this card for the Merry Monday 'Stockings' challenge, A Gem of a Challenge 'Your Favourite Colour Combo' challenge (I love traditional red and green for Christmas cards), Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad
Punch: Woodware squared corner
Card: Gold mirri
Paper: Lili of the Valley ' 'Classic Christmas'
Other: Wink of Stella, Woodware 'Christmas Sentiments' and stars peel-offs

I trimmed the holly paper, layered it onto gold mirri and attached it to the card front. I trimmed the pre-coloured image, punched the corners, layered it onto gold mirri and attached it to the centre of the card.  I added the 'Joy' and stars peel-offs and highlighted the stockings with a Wink of Stella.

Beautiful Christmas card, Kath. The image goes so well with the patterned paper you've use for the background. xx

Pat said...

The LOTV image and background paper are a perfect match Kath and it is such a shame that they have stopped doing these papers as they are always so pretty and well designed. I love the gold mirri you have layered it with and the gold sentiment and mixture of stars enhances it so prettily. x

I wish LOTV would bring back the art pads...I miss them so!

Your card is pretty. We still do stockings at our house and same with my girls...they are still carrying on the tradition.

But your image captures the stockings of my past...and I appreciate the fond memories it gave me!

Thanks for being my guest designer this month.

Beautiful stockings in the traditional colors (somehow I always love these best!) and I like the way you've presented this wonderful LOTV topper. Background border paper is perfect with the colors of the stockings too. Very festive & colorful. TFS & Hugs
