May Rudolph Day Challenge

It's time for another Rudolph Day card using a magazine cover gift (which is my theme this year).  This card uses a Hot off the Press stamp set that was a cover gift about ten years ago and is still one of my favourite Christmas stamps.  The lilac card was also a cover gift - it was the back of a card in a cross stitch kit.

I cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than the card blank and die cut a rectangle from the centre.  I placed the lilac card into my MISTI and laid the frame over the top so I could place the reindeer and sentiment stamps in the centre.  I removed the frame and stamped the images a couple of times to get a good depth of colour.  I layered the paper behind the frame and attached it to the card.

To make this card I used:
     5.5" x 4.25" white matt card blank
     Hot off the Press 'Reindeer & Sentiment' stamps
     My Favorite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics' die
     Versafine Onyx Black ink
     Snippets of lilac card and white matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes

     Rudolph Day - May Challenge

Your flourishy leaping deer is so pretty on the lilac background Kath and with a good sized sentiment, and looks perfect in the stitched rectangular frame. x
