Rudolph Days April Challenge


I found this cute stamped image in my box the other day, and decided to make a card for April's Rudolph Days challenge, which is always to make a Christmas card. Sorry, I have no idea who created this image, but if you recognize it, let me know in a comment and I'll edit this post to give credit to the artist. (edit: thanks to SARN for letting me know that this image is called "Bear & Present" and was made by Whipper Snapper Designs Inc.)
I colored the image with Copics, cut the panels with Lil Inker rectangles and added a Sweet 'n Sassy sentiment and called this one done! The cardstock colors are Island Indigo and Pool Party from SU!. This card is nice and flat and will not require extra postage, which always makes me a happy stamper :)

Thanks for spending a few minutes of your day with me, and have yourself a great weekend!

Hi Carol . . . gorgeously cute card.

I have that cute stamp and it's called "Bear & Present" No: CY836 by Whipper Snapper Designs Inc (who I don't think are in business anymore).

Hugs, Sarn xxx

This is so adorable. The image is so sweet and coloured beautifully!

You are so brave to stamp your sentiment straight to card! Bravo...that always terrifies me.

Thanks for taking part in the April Rudolph Days Challenge.

I'm so happy you found this cutie and gave him a 'home'. He's just delightful, so wonderfully bright in his little festive clothes, and I love the blue mats you chose to show him off. Well done! TFS & Hugs too.

Such pretty blues and now that Sarn has ID'd that as Whippersnapper I can look at that image and say, "But of course." For some reason I had in my head that the 25th (and Rudolph Day) was this coming Tuesday (tomorrow)... I see we are much further along in the month than I realized.

Love all the layers using the stitched dies and the gorgeous image, fabulously coloured, Brilliant card.
