Guest Designer - Rudolph Days Challenge

I have another guest designer card to share today...this time for the Rudolph Days Challenge hosted by Maureen. I was the lucky winner of last month's challenge, and have used the fantastic Memory Box 'Merry Christmas Script' die I received as my prize on my card:


I cut the 'Merry Christmas' die from a piece of white card...then used a craft knife to create the slope (the die cuts it straight across) to create a 'snowy' scene. For the background, I stamped my Hero Arts 'Snowflake' background stamp on to a blue card blank using Versamark Ink for a subtle snowy sky, before attaching the Merry Christmas panel and a Christmas tree (cut using a Marianne Designs die). This was such a quick and simple card to make that I made two!


The idea of the Rudolph Days Challenge is simple...make a Christmas card and blog it between now and the end of the month, then link it up over on Maureen's Rudolph Days post (with a link to the challenge to help spread the word)...that's it! The fabulous prize on offer for this this months lucky winner is this memory Box die:

Love how you used that die, so simple and yet very effective, really looks like a snowbank.

Helen, you scored a great win with this die, and it looks lovely used on this card. Really loved the way you've dipped the tail of the y down into that snowbank. Such a pretty look with the soft shade of blue and the snow white. Great job on your GD spot at August's Rudolph Day. Thanks for your visit & TFS.
