October Rudolph Day and LOTV Art Pad Giveaway!

This is the tenth Rudolph Day of the year and my final image from the Lili of the Valley 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad. I'm also entering Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Traditional Colours, The Merry Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes + Christmas' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

I've enjoyed using this 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad to make quick cards for the Rudolph Challenges and have an Art Pad to give away to one of my followers.  To find out how to win this Art Pad, please scroll to the bottom of this post.

Card blank: 7" x 7" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad
Card: Dark green matt
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Classic Christmas'
Other: Card Candi 'Vintage Berries Gold', Wink of Stella

I trimmed the red Christmas tree paper, layered it onto green card and attached it to the card front.  I then attached a strip of green Christmas tree paper across the card, ensuring the pattern matched.  I trimmed the pre-coloured Art Pad image, layered it onto green card and attached it to the left side of the card with equal margins on the top, bottom and left side.  To finish I highlighted the Christmas tree baubles with a Wink of Stella and attached three Candi to the top corner using Pinflair glue.

1. Be or become a follower of my blog
