Happy Rudolf day for June

 Can't believe it is Rudolf day again already! Who stole June? I am going to be short and sweet today as I am writing reports and hoping to do at least another three this evening. My first card is a single layer card. I masked off a strip with masking tape and stamped stamps from the winter spruce set from inkylicious on either side. I added dots of glitter glue and liquid pearls. After removing the tape I stamped the sentiment (Personal Impressions) in the space.
My second card has a background stamped with Crafty Individuals snow flakes (not very well) and a panel with a stamp from Inkylicious. I'm disappointed with this one. I might try adding some sparkle to it to see if it improves.
Do pop over to Mo's blog and take a look. It is the best way of keeping up with your Christmas cards.
I did have an hours break this afternoon at an open garden on our street, and I will share the photos of their stunning roses and clematis soon.
Thanks for looking!

Hi Sally, two beautiful cards, even if you'er disappointed with the snowflake one. I thought the first one was Cardi-io stamps, must have a look at the Inkylicious shop. It's a lovely designed and coloured card.
Good luck with the report writing, Kate x

I thought the same as Kate that the first one was using Cardi io stamps. Love the idea of the masking strip and then adding the sentiment in afterwards. Love the second just as it is. Looks lovely and icy cold. Hugs Mrs A.

Your cards look great! I love the way you did the strip and then stamped the first one. It is so pretty and quite stunning really.
The second just needs a wee sparkle and then you will love it too!
Thanks for taking part in the June Rudolph Days Challenge.
