Rudolf days for October

 Good morning! Happy Rudolf day! As it is half term I have been a busy bee and made four cards for this month to take over to Scrappy Mo's for the challenge. I started off by stamping the woodware holly stamp all over an A5 sheet of cartridge paper using versafine. I then used my Zig Clean Color markers to colour it. I dusted tea dye distress ink over the finished sheet and added glossy accents to the berries and spots of glitter glue in between.
 I sliced it up into two long panels and two square panels, matted and layered and popped onto cream card blanks. There are one or two smudges covered by carefully placed ribbon, and a dodgy stamping of a sentiment,but on the whole they worked out fine. I do like the zig pens (one of my purchases from Doncaster), they blend so well!
 Unfortnately I don't think the stamps are available any more. They came out about the same time as the tipsy trees, and I have used them most years since. I do love how Rudolf days challenge helps me to use lots of my old stamps too!
Right, I'd better go as Steve and I are off out for a walk. I have been quite inactive since we got back from Wales other than my Karate classes and a walk round Chatsworth. Will try and post some photos soon.
Thanks for looking!

Beautifully colored and a great idea to slice it into sections to make more than one card. Awesome! Sorry I am so late for commenting but thanks for playing along with the Rudolph Days challenge.
