Happy Rudolph Days January 2021

it’s a new year and we’re here at the Rudolph Days Challenge, hosted by Maureen, to inspire you to create holiday cards every month to avoid the stress of not being ready for mailing deadlines.

this month I’m featuring a beautiful Tattered Lace bow die set, a DT gift from Maureen, that I had a lot of fun with.

first up is a tag: I cut purple mirri paper with the middle size bow and attached it with just a dot of glue to a square cut from festive doodlebug winter wonderland paper I finished it off with a lawn fawn sentiment and twine.

I cut gold mirri paper with all three dies and attached them to some red plaid paper, leftover from the gnome cards; it’s from a bo bunny paper pad, Christmas Treasures, that measures 6 inches wide and 8 inches long – perfect for those longer style cards. the merry is lawn fawn.

what to do with leftover bits? confetti! I used a toothpick to dot liquid glue in spots and attached the purple mirri bits with a Marvy jewel picker. if you’re looking for a therapeutic activity, this is it; I got a bit absorbed with deciding where the bits would go. I used the same lawn fawn die set for the happy, also cut from purple mirri for this 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch card.

the rules are simple: just submit one Christmas creation for a chance to win a generous prize from Maureen and leave a comment on her blog.

thanks for popping by.

  1. Hi Linda
    Sorry, it has taken me so long to get around to visiting. I have visited 18 blogs so far, and plan to do the same again this afternoon. It always is so cheery to visit blogs featuring Christmas cards!

    I think your cards are so cool, To make a card from the waste of the die was a brilliant idea. It looks great!

    The present and bow cards look so pretty. The non-traditional colours are lovely and the bows are perfect in the glitter card.. I now want to try one with a gold mirri bow!

    Thanks for being on my design team, Linda.

  2. Hi Linda,

    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. That bow die is absolutely gorgeous & I love how you used it! The slimline card is fun & beautiful! So creative to use the bits for the New Year’s card–more patience that I have, for sure! Thanks so much for making the effort to email me when you couldn’t leave a comment on my blog. I appreciate your condolences. I’m not a parent, but can imagine the incredible sorrow loosing a child. Crafting & remembering happy times are definitely therapy for me. Hugs, Greta

  4. How fun ! You used this die cut in many ways with each card with a different vibe altogether. I must say I totally enjoy the card with the bits and pieces you glued here and there. It’s very festive !
