It's Rudolph Day

It's the 25th of the month - which means it's time to celebrate Rudolph Day by sharing a Christmas card over at Scrappymo's. And today it's an extra special Rudolph Day for me, as it's my first as a member of the new Design Team.

Here is my card - I used a piece of backing paper from my snippets box. I absolutely no idea where it came from! It looks as if it's one I printed from a CD or download, but I have nothing in my collection of either that looks as if it came from there. So it's Mystery Paper.

For the topper, two of the cute Woodware robins from the stamp set I won in the Snippets Playground looked to me as if they were in that bloated, post-Christmas-dinner food coma that seems to affect so many of us, so I stamped them lying back to back either side of that Christmas Pud they couldn't quite manage. The pud stamp itself is one I bought at the Make It Show in Farnborough a few years ago, there's no brand name on the backing sheet. I used a deep pink Wink of Stella for the robins' breasts, and pink gems for the holly berries on the pud, to link to the pink backing paper. The sentiment is printed out from a download, and I used deep grey for the matting because when I tried black it looked too harsh.


Do please flutter over to Scrappymo's  and share a Christmas card with us by the end of the month!

  9. Hi Jane, just saw your stuffed little robins over at Rudy Day, and popped over for a closer look.Congratulations on being a Guest Designer at Rudy Day, and I'm already a follower of yours...so that part is covered! Enjoyed seeing the fantastic coloring on these little fellas...the pink showed up so nicely. A cute idea to combine with the pudding...they really do look quite nicely filled out! TFS & Hugs

  12. Oh Jane this is a great fun card. Love your robins!! Yes, it would be good to get together again soon. The many medical appointments are getting further apart which leaves more time for more enjoyable things!
