March Rudolph Day is here!

It's the 25th of March and that means it is Rudolph Day over at Scrappymo's. It's our monthly chance to get ahead with out Christmas cards - and there's a fab prize of a choice of dies to be won too!

Here's my Design Team card for this month - I made the reindeer's faces by inking up my fingertip and pressing it in the card. The smiles and antlers are drawn freehand, I used tiny googly eyes ( a fab find in my local bargain shop, bags containing at least 100 of each of three sizes for 79p, that's about $1 to you US folk!) for the eyes, and tiny red adhesive pearls for the noses. A simple fun sentiment using a Studio G stamp is all that was needed to finish the card. This would be a great card to make with children, they'd love the fingerprinting part, and if my own grandchildren are anything to go by, googly eyes will fascinate them.

 
You have until the end of the month to pop over to Scrappymo's and link up your own Rudolph Day card.

  8. Hi Jane! Thanks for this fun and adorable card. Sometimes we can get so caught up with layers and texture and embellies that we can forget how fun it is to make a card with ingenuity and creativity! Well done!

  10. How clever! Stamped reindeer with no real stamps involved! And additional points for it being a card ideal for keeping postage costs down too. Fun!!

  19. I love this card! This is so much fun. I am in a very large stamp club. Sometimes people come up with card ideas for us to do which is hard for such a big group. One time it was a card like this made with our very own thumb print.

  20. I'm late! I'm late! Just catching up on my commenting. Love your card, such a clever idea! Wondered where my pack of googly eyes had gone, never expected the local shop to have pinched them!!
