November's Rudolph Day

It's the 25th of the month and time for Rudolph Day again, the last of 2016 since on the 25th of next month we'll probably all be otherwise occupied!


For this card I've used the very last few snippets of a pad of papers and punch-out decoupage that was free with a magazine several years ago. In fact some of the snippets weren't even really big enough to make the layers I wanted, so I had to arrange them VERY carefully in order not to show the missing parts! But now the pad is completely used up, and isn't it satisfying to know that you have made 100% use of something (and were therefore fully justified in buying the magazine!).  The only element that didn't come from the pad is the adhesive foam snowflake border.

I'm sharing this with

  2. Hi Jane,
    what a very wonderful card, and you definitly got your monies worth with using all those lovely snippets.
    I like your idea that it justifies the price of the magazine.
    Love that father Christmas image and you wonderful design.
    Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. GD

  4. Oh Jane, what a fun card! I love it - and how great to actually finish off a paper pad/pack! I have so many unfinished ones here it's ridiculous.

    Ha, I'll be lurking behind the shed with gin in a teapot - thereby covering both your wishes :)

    Hugs

  10. I am like you and like to use up the last bits of something. I also like to make cards from my stash!

    Well done you! This is such a great card. I can imagine how you have "stretched" the pieces to create this card and appreciate the planning involved in doing so.

    Thanks for taking part in the November Rudolph Days Challenge.
