Rudolph Day Jan 2015

Hello and welcome to the very first Rudolph Day challenge of 2015.
Sarn has retired, huge thank to her for the past few years but 
ScrappyMo has taken over the reigns and a huge thank you to her for doing so.

The rules have changed and we have to only enter one card and have one entry.

This is a die that I bought just before Christmas last year and I had a play. You cut the die then emboss it and  while the card is still in the die ,colour the embossed bits, I used Tumbled Glass, then sprayed it with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Iridescent spray, which I am sure doesn't show up here. Also it doesn't show that I have added sticky pads to the back of the tree so it stands out from the background

Another bonus is the fact that as the tree is separate from the background it can be used on it's own.

I have half the packaging but can't find the other half that tells me the name of the die.

This post will be scheduled and the lovely Sarn will do the linking for me and I really do apologise that I will not be able to leave comments as I will be on holiday, as this post goes live I will have just left Bridgetown, Barbados, heading for Grenada.

Thank you so much for looking and even though I will not be able to leave you a comment I hope that you are kind enough to let me know that you have visited. I will do better next month.
