Christmas in August

The Rudolph Days Challenge is here again, a challenge which runs between the 25th and the end of each month.  This was an easy design for batch making and I made 36 in total, so I'm back on track with my Christmas cards for 2017.

The matt silver frame was die cut with a die from eBay using freebie silver card, layered on a blue rectangle and attached to a card blank. I used one of MB 'Twilight Snowflakes' dies with lots of white snippets to die cut three snowflakes for each card.  The sentiment is computer generated, die cut using the large rectangle part of the frame die and inlaid into the silver frame. 

Half of my cards were same design, but using a pale blue card.

I am joining in the following challenges:

    1. It didn't take as long as I thought it would. I cut all the frames in one go, then all the snowflakes, followed by the sentiments. I cut all the blue card to the right size, then I just had to assemble the cards. Much quicker than doing one at a time. x
