For a couple of nights this week our internet has been playing up - hopefully just weather interference - so I took the opportunity to make a quick pair of cards for Rudolph Day.
As you can see, they are both the same except for the glitter glue that I used to give them a little 'lift'. They were both clear, ice type of glues, Dovecraft 'Crystal' which has very fine green and blue glitter in it, and Stickles 'Icicle' which has a coarser gold glitter in it. On a snowy image the difference is almost unnoticeable, but on this dark background it really shows up.
I spotted the image in the Silhouette store and bought it as a cutting file. I love to hear the bells ring out on Christmas morning, but they are not often featured on Christmas cards these days. I cut the file twice in my Silhouette cameo, using dark blue card. (The frame is attached to the bells and cuts in one piece).
The backing paper looked as though it was from a magazine but it was a good quality, slightly glossy paper so I am not sure. I found it in my Christmas paper box so it is probably quite old! There was sufficient to back both cuts. It was graduated shades of blue, so they look slightly different. Then I mounted them onto plain white base cards and used a very old Hot off the Press stamp for the sentiment.
I thought they looked a little flat, so I added the glitter glue. There is actually a touch of it on the stars in the background too, but that doesn't show in the photo. A bit of bling was what they needed and I am happy with the results. So I will link them over at Scraps of Life by Scrappy Mo, for the March Rudolph Day Challenge. You have from 25th to 31st to add your Christmas make, so I hope to see you over there.
