February Rudolph Day


It's time for another Rudolph Day over on Mo's Blog.

This month I got to finally use a TH die that I bought before Christmas. I can see lots of uses for it apart from Christmas. I used some wood effect paper so that it looks like one of the old cars with wood panels. The background is a Penny Black die that I actually bought while shopping with Mo when we met up a couple of years ago. It will always remind me of that wonderful trip.

I've always loved the "Driving home for Christmas" song and thought it would make a good sentiment to go with this scene. I've used my new found bouncing calligraphy skills - first attempt at this style. I also went over the writing with one of the dual ink pens.

WOW! I see what you mean about calligraphy - that is amazing. There's no way I could produce that without a stamp. The style is perfect with the retro car too, it all adds up to a stunning card.

What a fabulous card. I have been eying up this T Holtz die as well. I love the way you made it look like a wood trimmed card. I think they used to call them Woody's.

Greatcard!

Thanks for taking part in the February Rudolph Days Challenge.
