It's time for Rudolph Day over on Mo's blog where we get to show our Christmas cards and hopefully make a few so there is no rush nearer the seasonal time. I haven't been doing as many Christmas cards this year and so decided to pull out all the stops and make two. I also wanted to use this beautiful CRM inspired die which I had yet to use. I also realised that a die by a completely different company worked well on the corners.
I actually made a non Christmas card first which I will share later this week. It was then that a little plan hatched, how would the die cut in in metallic with glitter paste behind it look? The top card is that technique and for the other card I used some extra sparkly red glitter paper I have (which I had totally forgotten about!). I did wonder after wards whether the sparkle paste looked any better than the glitter paper for all the effort but in real life they do look very different.
The images and papers I had printed last year and they never got used. They are from MCS Festive Deco Follies.
I'm also going to enter the challenge on CD Sunday which is Fab and Feminine.
