Last month's winner, Sally Miller of Krazy Jayne blog is a guest designer this month. Sally has made this gorgeous gold embossed, and very, very pretty bird card. So very shimmering and full of sparkle. I love the way she has echoed that gorgeous gold with the diecut mat!
We have a second guest designer this month. Tanya of Little Art Cottage blog. Tanya was the lucky winner of the January Rudolph Days challenge. I love the soft and pretty colours of her adorable snowman image! That snow is so realistic...feels like Christmas already!
Here is my March Rudolph Days card. It is simple in design but I really enjoyed making it. In keeping with my aim of making some slimmer cards this year, this one will definitely fit through the regular postage slot.
I stamped the Hero Arts Winter Scene image onto a snippet of white card and then chalked the sky around it. I thought it seemed sort of flat so I went over that chalk with some glimmery chalks that are about 10 or more years old. They are made by Yatsutomo and the intensity of the colour can be changed by how much water you use There is a lovely shimmer to the sky now.
Placed that matted image onto some glitter card and then mounted that finished topper onto a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square card.
Suddenly, I remembered that when we were moving, I missed a Snow Covered Trees theme at my Christmas Card Club. So I pulled out my Zig glue pen and fine white Stampendous Glitter added some snow to the trees and a few snow drifts for good measure! Makes me feel a little better that I caught up a bit with this card. Here is a little close up of that snow...I am happy with this card as it seems more arty than my usual style.
I am entering my scene card in the following challenges:
1. Christmas Card Club - Snow covered trees (a very overdue card, I must say...sorry ladies)
2. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
3. Darnell's NBUS Challenge #4 - my scenic stamp is my NBUS item
4. Merry Monday Challenge - #151 Tree
The March Rudolph Days Challenge prize is this Dazzling Snowflake die. Good luck in the draw!
