Rudolph Day and Pixie's Crafty Workshop

Well Happy 10 months til Christmas....or.....Happy Rudolph Day!  Thankfully, I am kept on Christmas Card track by my friend Sarn at Stamping For Pleasure so, here it is another napkin card.  Enough already with the napkins!  Nope, I've got lots more, I just haven't put them together.  Yet another item on my bucket list!

This was fun....The napkin was quite large and I wanted to make this card, I cut all the pieces and put them together on a 6 x6 card.  The background, especially the sky, has a few holes from where I cut the bird and Mr. Snowman is covering a hole where the bunny once lived.   Then I added glitter and lots of it.  The photo doesn't show all it's glittery wonder!   This is what the napkin originally looked like:
I used the border on the inside of the card.  It too was pieced together:
To cover the piecing, I added a Memory Box "Frosty Border" snow die.

I'm hoping this qualifies as a snippet.  I had the snow people ready to go onto a card, when I looked over and saw how unhappy the little bunny was without them.  That's when I decided to close cut all the figures and put them onto one card front.  Di, if I messed up, give me a long time-out on the playground.  I think my time out should be behind the shed...I think I hear lots of giggling coming from there.  Check out Pixie's Crafty Workshop to see what's going on there and tell Di I sent you. 

I'm off to play with the girls today.  Always lots of laughing, quietly working, and a little learning.
A bit of exciting news before I go.  

Before I go, one more thing....Bridget from Photography and Me found out I'm traveling to Australia.  Guess what, I'm FINALLY going to meet her.  We haven't finalized the plans yet, and we've got 4 months to plan, but it should be fun, even if we only have a short time to visit I'm sure we can cram a lot of chatting into it.  Am I excited?  Wait tell I tell my travel buddy Dee Dee!  

Have a most wonderful Monday and let it be the beginning of a fabulous week.

Hugs from a chilling northern California.

  1. Brilliant Mary! I have some napkins here to play with once I summon up the courage :)

    Of course it's fine for the Playground, we don't have many rools here :)

    What fun about meeting up with Bridget - you'll get to see her craft room, which always looks fascinating on WOYWW.

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. I'm amazed what you can do with napkins! I clicked on the photo to look at it close up and saw all the glittery goodness. Thanks for sharing.

  10. What a fab idea, love the use of the whole napkin too very effective. Hugs, Amanda x

  11. I can't believe that's a napkin Mary, it's beautiful! We have another winter storm heading our way this afternoon and tonight, hopefully it'll put me back in a wintry mood again and I can get a Christmas card made!


  12. What a wonderful use of this napkin! You've done wonders with it. Would never have guessed your motif was from a napkin. Gotta get back to that & use those beautiful ones you sent. Looks like great use of 'snippets' to me! (I'm begging the girls for some of those heated chestnuts somebody mentioned. Never had that, wanna try it). Your Aussie trip is drawing closer. Wish I could stow away in your luggage...Your border(s) on the inside of your card really tied this card together. Real pretty. TFS.

  13. What a brilliant use of a napkin - and such a cute pic! And very envious of a trip to Oz
