I was honoured to be included in the DT for the Rudolph Days Challenge for February, April and June this year. The challenge is open every month from between the 25th until the end of the month. The prize for the lucky winner this month is a lovely Memory Box Holly Leaf Border Die.
I've used red and white for my card for February, probably my favourite colour combination for Christmas cards. I started by die cutting the centre of a piece of white card with a Memory Box 'Large Circle Burst' die. Then I embossed the card with a poinsettia embossing folder - a freebie with a craft magazine. I remembered to die cut first, otherwise the embossing gets flatten if the embossing is done first. Something I learned from experience! This was then attached to a red card blank. I used the two smallest Spellbinders 'Layered Poinsettia' dies with a snippet of white card for the poinsettia in the centre. I wanted to add a few small red circles, but didn't have a circle punch small enough, so found a snippet of red card and used the Circle Burst die to die cut a few circles. The finished flower is attached with foam pads.
It's never too early to start your Christmas cards, so I hope you find time to enter this month. As it's a leap year, you have an extra day this February! Looking forward to seeing all your creations. Click HERE for the link.
