Rudolph Day Challenge for May.

Well here we are at Rudolph Day again (25th of the month). It has been a bit of a roller coaster month for me, will little time to spend in my craft room, but I have managed to make a set of simple Christmas cards, so here are a few of them.

The words "Joy to the World" was a cutting file purchased from the Silhouette store, and cut with my Cameo machine. I ungrouped it all and carefully removed the letter "O", and replaced it with one of three nativity baubles, also purchased from the silhouette store, and reduced to fit in the space.
I cut the main letters from a variety of coloured card and some metallic embossed card. Because the nativity images were more intricate with some fine lines, I cut them from several colours of vinyl. It is hard to photograph it well, but the top one is cut from green metallic vinyl, the next one from black glitter vinyl, and the last one from silver.
I rooted through my stash and found a variety of backing papers, using transfer tape to position the cut images centrally on them. Then I cut base cards to tone with each one, and used  up oddments of border papers, peel-offs and ribbons to finish them off.
I made eight cards in all, each one different, but all using the same words, and one of the three images.
