Thank you for our gifts

Happy New Year!  It's the start of a New Year, a new month and a new challenge at Christmas Crafts All Year Round where we want to see 'Thank You' cards.  I'm also entering my card into the first challenge at Ally's Angels  where 'Anything Goes'.



Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Bugaboo 'Rudolph Presents' digi (Friday freebie)
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Wonky Rectangles'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: White silk
Paper: Turquoise snowflake (magazine freebie)
Other: Silver card candi, Glossy Accents, computer generated sentiment 'Tempus Sans ITC'

I trimmed the snowflake paper and attached it to the card.  I resized the digi and added the sentiment before printing it onto white card.   I then die cut and embossed the image before colouring it with Promarkers.  As I wanted the image to stand away from the card front, I cut two more wonky rectangles with the smaller die and layered these to the back of the panel before attaching it to the centre of the card.  To finish I added silver Card Candi to the top and bottom corners and highlighted Rudolph's eyes with Glossy Accents.
