Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer card using Stamp-It Reindeer Text stamp


Hello and thanks for dropping by :-)

I whipped up a simple card using a lovely vintage stamp from Stamp-It Australia called "Reindeer Text".  You can find the stamp here at Fat Cat's Card Corner.  It was stamped onto cream cardstock with Vintage Sepia ink and then diecut using the newly-released Spellbinder Eyelet Square Nestabilities.  The nestie fitted the image perfectly (don't you love it when that happens?!).  These nesties are not on Fat Cat's website yet, but keep an eye out:  I'm sure they will be soon.

I heavily distressed the image with Antique Linen ink and a seasponge (as are all the layers on the card) and the image panel is up on 1mm mounts (dimensionals).  I added a little red rhinestone to his nose - check it out with this close-up:


If you don't have such a tiny rhinestone, you could just use some Red Stickles instead.  My rhinestone actually came from one of those little Basic Grey bling pictures - I like them because they usually have some very tiny rhinestones on them and are smaller than the Kaiser rhinestone sets. 

The ribbon came from Kenny's Cardiology (you will find this store at most larger Australian shopping centres) - where I buy my DD her Beanie (Kids) bears.  When I was in there the other day, I noticed that they had a stand of rolls of wide ribbon, so being a ribbon-a-holic, I had to get some LOL.  I love the sparkles in this particular ribbon - think I might get some more...... ;-)  The ribbon was attached in 2 separate elements, and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy.

Challenges:

I am entering this card into 2 Challenges.  The first is Allsorts Challenge Blog where this week's challenge #73 is 'Inspiration from a Song Title'  Well, of course it's Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer (bet you're singing it now.....).  The other Challenge is Papertake Weekly Challenge which is 3 of a Kind - which can be anything like 3 papers, 3 buttons etc.  I have used just 3 colours on my card:  cream, brown and red.

Thanks for stopping by - hope to see you again soon!

This is such a beautiful card Jocelyn. So many things I love here, but especially the nesties square, the ribbon and the patterned paper in the back.

Have a lovely day,
Sam.
