As a child I loved the magical idea of Rudolph and the other reindeer flying through the sky pulling Santa's sleigh. I think that's why I love this magical stamp from Elusive Images. It's part of the Christmas Fusion Themeplate.
To make this card I first made a background with shimmery blue Glimmer Mists which I covered with clear UTEE and stamped "Rudolph" into it using Encore Metallic Silver ink. Finally I gave him a lovely red nose with a tiny spot of Christmas Red Stickles Glitter.
The backing paper is from the Artylicious Season's Greetings CD. It's actually a very plain paper with just a very soft graduated shading on it, but I used another stamp from the Christmas Fusion Themeplate and some more of the Encore silver ink to stamp that lovely star flourish all over it.
Finally I assmebled my card, staying with the "star" theme by using some star effect holographic card to layer with and by adding a few faux gems in the shapes of stars to the card.
This card is my card for August's "Fab's Big Christmas Challenge" - I don't think I am going to do the nutter's challenge this month - it's EIGHT cards before the 25th of September, but we shall see, maybe I will find enough time this month!
