Margaret at Dutchess chose the theme Father Christmas for our last challenge at Christmas Card Club. I finally have my card ready, sorry about that Margaret. Sometimes it seems, life just gets in the way!
This was another fun card to do. I tend to make my fancy/schmancy cards earlier in the year. Once the good weather comes, the garden beckons, the lake calls and I seem to run out of hours in the day! Simpler cards seem to fit the ticket at this time of year.
I got the "Merry & bright" sentiment when the local scrapbook store moved to a new address. It was part of that same move when I got the "chalkboard card" items.. I am not sure the of the DP used for the sentiment papers as this was another package of snippets for $1.50 or so. I just liked the bright, fun look of it and designed my card around it. This is the last of this paper line in that package, so methinks a visit to the Playground is in order. I visited so late last week that I had to turn the skipping rope the whole time...I was too late to get a turn to jump!
Luckily, the Carta Bella Merry and Bright paper pad seems to match the sentiment DP. I added some K and Co. Santa in his sleigh and a cute little female reindeer...I have named her Rudolphina...those pink horns are just too cute! I toyed with the idea of adding a red diamond to her nose but then decided...that is Rudolph's gig...Rudolphina wears her colour on her horns...she knows where to draw the line!!!
The never ending package of dollar store snowflakes have made an appearance and just a touch of bling has finished it all off.
