Rudolph Day November 2015


To be honest this wasn't what I intended doing for my last (boo hoo) RD challenge for 2015.
I wanted to show you the 150 Christmas Cards that I had made for my x-employer but after adding the inserts I put them into envelope's and couldn't be bothered to get them all back out again. I delivered them yesterday and stuck the labels on for them while I was there.

So this is it, I have had this tree die and the border die for years and have only just realised how well they go together, what an idiot.

Presscut - step card
Memory Box - Winterland Tree and Valencia Border
The star is from Creative Expressions Silent Night by Sue Wilson
SU punch and Craftwork Cards sentiment.
Shimmer paper, pale green - Craft Creations, bought at local craft shop.

Huge thank you to Mo for running the challenge and to all the entrants for your inspiration and lovely comments over the year.
Now I need to sort out my Christmas cards and hopefully I will have enough with just the Family ones left to make.
Thanks so much for popping by.

  3. That's a tall order Kathleen, I was huffing and puffing over 80 for the accountant.

    That tree and border certainly do work well together and a lovely shimmer from the paste.

  10. Wow, stunning card Kath, a very fitting finale for this year's Rudolph Day Challenges!.Don't be too sad ....soon be time to start on 2016's!
    Can't believe you made 150! Were they all the same design? I struggle to do 2 or 3 the same, I start off with excellent intention to make a batch but am easily diverted (very low concentration span I fear!)
