Christmas card for the Rudolph Days - November Challenge

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How have you all been while I have been away? We are back now from a wonderful trip. I do love a good cruise. The food, the entertainment and the places to visit it is all great. I will share more when we have settled a bit. Tonight we are going to see a Beatles Tribute band in Fareham with our good friends. Our friends  also helped us to get to and from our cruise.

Here is a small Christmas card I made for the November Rudolph Days Challenge. I made one of my Snippets backgrounds for this one.

I bought lots of A3 black card. I used to buy card blanks with envelopes and then I found that I had lots of envelopes left over. So now I make my own card blanks. When you make a large card blank there is usually enough card left to make a smaller one. I had a layer of silver glitter card for one of the mats. There was enough left over to cut some thin strips. These I used between strips of blue patterned paper to make the background, 

The sentiment die is from the Round Bauble die set from the John Next Door range.

The stags came from the same die set. 

I do hope I have enough Christmas cards. I can't see me having much time next month to make many more. November has been super busy too. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Have a great weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hi Jackie! What a wonderful way to paper piece on a card - the diagonal design is so striking, and it really does look like a Christmas Night Sky! Beautifully done! hugs, de

Love the card Jackie and the background. I must make some more of those. Glad you enjoyed the cruise. Must get on with my C Cards but have awful cold and cough at the moment so not sleeping well and can’t concentrate on card making.
