Rudolph Day

Happy Rudolph Day and for once, I am close to the actual 25th.  When I was putting my two new cards into "storage", it dawned on me that Christmas isn't all that far away.  I know, it's not even summer and I'm talking Christmas....never too early to start....and Sarn at Stamping For Pleasure points us in the right direction.  Well, here's what I've made for this month....
I'm not thrilled with the photo.  The glitter doesn't look all that glittery!  But it is....The card was made from snippets taken from a 6x6 paper pack. It's from  Melissa Frances - Deck the Halls.  I have no idea what year.  The sentiments are from Stampabilities and Stampendous.  The die is Memory Box.  The glitter is Martha Stewart.  And here's the inside....
I finished this card and still had snippets left over.  The up and down side to making kits for classes, lots of snippets are, here is my Rudolph Day second card...and since these cards are both filled with snippets, Di will be getting a visit from me...Actually this week I've been running wild on the playground.  Too much candy maybe....
Two years ago, at PSB Christmas Crop, Karen gave us a sheet of paper that had tons of Santa's - big ones like this and tiny ones.  I glittered all of mine and put them safely away for another day.  Well, almost 600 days went by and's what I did... and you will notice the sewing.  My friend, Edy will be thrilled!  I used my Sew Easy tool....wanta know how long I've had that in my tool kit?  Wanta know how often I've used it?  Well....I was in Sacramento with friends and I found a ruler made by Sew Easy that actually makes guiding the tool easy....."Sew"...clever no?  I sewed, by hand mind you, using the pierced holes.  Pretty Easy! You may actually see more sewing!  And here is the inside....

Well, if I'm going to get this posted by the last day of the month.....I'd best get going.  Until next time, have a most wonderful and very crafty weekend. 

I am playing along at  Stamping For Pleasure - Rudolph Day

  2. Two brilliant Rudolph day cards and the bonus is using the snippets up too :) Elizabeth xx

    PS: I'm forever bemoaning the fact that glitter doesn't show up well in my photos too, even when it looks fabulous in real life :(

  3. Hi Mary

    I realised you hadn't added this into the Playground - all done for you now. Two lovely snippets cards, and of course perfect for Rudolph Day!

    Hugs, Di xx

  4. Two great cards for Christmas. They are great .

  5. Two great cards.
    Love that Santa image and what a wonderful idea to glitter it ahead of time...Think I am going to steal that idea! I often glitter snowflakes ahead....I just need to let that plan encompass more items!!!

    Glittering the poinsettias on the first card make them look so striking. They just catch your eye right away!
