Hi there everyone. Another month has whooshed by and so once again it is time for the Rudolph Days Challenge over at Scraps of Life by Scrappymo, run by lovely Mo, and believe it or not there are now only two more challenges before Christmas, so time to motor on with those seasonal cards. The challenge runs from the 25th to the end of each month, and as it is the last day of the month today I have made this very quick card using an upcycled topper. Our son has been visiting from Australia and we had a great time in Cornwall this last week with beautiful weather, warm sun every day, definitely good for the time of year. Sadly we have now said goodbye as he has gone to visit friends prior to returning to Sydney tomorrow, and thank goodness for Skype, how did we manage before.
I used a couple of foliage stamps and a sentiment from a Chocolate Baroque set called Robin the Spruce and made this wreath of foliage around the topper using two of the stamps, and also added a sentiment from the set. I put the 6" square white card into my Misti and laid the pinecone foliage stamp across the corner and stamped using Versamark ink, and by twisting the card a quarter turn each time placed the corners. Then I used the smaller berries stamp and put that in between and did the same thing to get that circular shape. I finished by heat embossing with the WOW Metallic Gold Embossing Powder.
To finish I then placed the sentiment and again embossed with the Gold EP. I do think my sentiment could have been a little straighter though. I decided to give the topper more dimension by adding a piece of white foam behind to raise it up a bit.
Thank you for visiting here today and I will be back again tomorrow.
