Peace For Rudolph Days March 2021

I’m sharing my DT creations for the Rudolph Days Challenge, hosted by Maureen at her blog.

Christmas cards featuring peace die cut sentiment with embossed holly background copyright Linda snailzpace.com

I used this beautiful Penny Black peace die, a gift from Maureen for being a DT member, to cut green cardstock and sponged it with distress inks: shabby shutters, pine needles and chipped sapphire. I added red gloss gems, no longer available but they measure 3 mm. to finish the card, I used the taylored expressions holly embossing folder and lightly brayered with brushed corduroy distress ink.

like so many dies, I thought this one was versatile so I die cut with matte gold foil paper, coloured the berries with the only two spectrum noir markers I have and added the smallest Marianne design rhinestones that I coloured with permanent markers. the card stock is actually dark teal and I added a matte gold border to finish it off.

the rules are so simple and there’s a chance to win a generous prize from maureen so why not get a head start on holiday cards; or keep adding to your pile of cards so there’ll be no last minute rush.

I’m playing along with the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for March and the Anything Goes option.

thanks for popping by.

  3. I just love how the holly die mirrors that great embossing folder on the first card! Beautiful sponging of those colors too! The teal & gold version looks so festive and pretty, and you showcased how versatile that die really is! Happy Rudolph day!
