January Rudolph Day

It's time for the first Rudolph Day challenge of the year!  As part of my frugal crafting year, I've decided this year my Rudolph Day cards will all be small 4" x 4" cards and will also be either upcyled or snippets cards - or maybe both!  I'm entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'B for Birds' and The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Always Anything Christmas Goes'.  I'm also hopping over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop with my snippets.


Card blank: 4" x 4" cream fleck matt
Image: Upcycled Christmas card
Punch: Woodware 2" square
Other: Diamond Stickles
Snippets: Gold pearlescent and bronze mirri card

To make this quick Christmas card, I punched the partridge image from the centre of the Christmas card.  This was then layered onto bronze mirri, gold pearlescent and bronze mirri card before being attached to the centre of the card.  To finish, I highlighted the partridge with Diamond Stickles.
