Rudolf & Friends - Pink Gem Designs DT

Morning everyone :o)

It's my turn to post over on the Gems of Inspiration blog today, and I thought I'd play with one of Janet's fab new clipart sets - great for quick cards, and also for making little (or big!) scenes, and lots of fun too!

A friend, who's a nurse, asked me for a large card (this one is 8" square) for the ward she works on, so I thought I'd make a nice big scene using this cute Rudolf & Friends set.  There are loads of different elements in this set, and you could use them to make an entirely digital card, but I had this snowy layered idea in my head!  So the first layer - using trees & snowflakes from the set - was created digitally using Serif PagePlus.  I then tore (yes, me, tearing!!!) some white card into 'snow' layers, cut one of the Rudolf images out, and layered it all up.

This photo shows the layers a bit clearer...

The digi papers are Christmas Sparkles and Micro Dots, and the Merry Christmas sentiment is blank in the centre so you can add your own personalisation.  All available from Pink Gem Designs.

I also used
Winter Wonderland sentiment - LOTV
Memory Box Madera Corner die - MCH
Nestabilites circle dies
Stickles in Frosted Lace

Right, can't hang around - cards to be made!  Oh I forgot to say - the boys are feeling much better and are now back at school, yippee lol... Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
