First Rudolph Day of 2015 with Scrappymo



It's the first Rudolph Day of 2015 and the first one with it's new owner over on Scraps of Life by ScrappyMo. Sarn has handed over the reins after a fabulous job and I'm sure we are going to enjoy playing along with Mo just as much, you have until the end of January if you want to join in and share a Christmas card. 
Although we only need to share one card these two cards go together as they are both snippet cards also. I cut out the Merry for the first card and used the remainder card to make the second card (still with me?). The first card also uses a snippet from another card I made as the embossed base. The stamp is from Penny Black and I used gilding flakes with flitter glue.
For my second card I used a Nicecrane image and ran it through an embossing folder rubbing over with some TH old paper ink to raise the embossing.
So, I am also off to the playground to share these cards in the snippet challenge.

Looks like you are on the starting blocks for next Christmas with two beautiful cards. Love the embossing on the both.

Two fabulous cards Lynn and clever use of snippets to make two very different cards. I think the first one is my favourite as I love the way you have used gilding flakes on the Penny Black image.

Thank you for joining in the fun at the January Rudolph Day!

Lovely, Each card. Loved the surprise of the beige-y non-traditional colors. Each looks so very vintage, and it's especially lovely on the #2 image. Perfect! TFS & joining in with #1 Rudy Day for 2015! Hugs

Both cards are lovely. Great idea to emboss the Nicecrane image for extra texture too.
