People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Christmas Carol Week!

This week only---- on the Great Impressions Blog  we are making Christmas cards that are inspired by a Christmas Carol...and you have to guess what it is!  Since I am last in line for the song week, you only have today to leave me a comment with your guess on the Challenge Blog if you want to get a chance to win a prize.  Now, I can be pretty bad about guessing this sort of thing, so I will leave a BIG hint somewhere in this post!

I used this festive DP from Echo Park-I LOVE plaid and in red and green-oh so yummy! I used this cute, cute, cute Merry Reindeer stamp. I stamped Rudolph once and then stamped and colored again. I cut out Rudy and added him on dimensionals.  I think you can see that in the bottom picture.

I cut out the icicle border with my Silhouette and covered it with glitter for a sparkly touch as well. I finished it off with some pretty  ribbon and Silhouette cut snowflakes and the Merry Christmas sentiment.  
Jenny said it best so here is her description of all the shenanigans we have going on at the Great Impressions Blog!

That is one adorable reindeer! I love the frosty icicles and plaid is so pretty at Christmas time!

Elizabeth Hart said...

This has to be "Rudolph the red-nosed Reindeer." I just love the way you gave extra dimension to him - he is so cute.

Mary Marsh said...

super cute card Sue and I love this Rudolph image-great coloring and dimension on here as well

Well, if your song's not Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, it certainly ought to be!

Marsha said...

What a cute stamp and card. Going with "Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer."

Sue D said...

Great card--love the icicles. I am guessing Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer.

Donna Nuce said...

It has to be Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer! He is so cute! Sweet card.

Colleen said...

This card is stunning. I love the way you gave the Rudolph the 3d treatment. Your song has to be Rodolph the Red nosed Reindeer. I hope LOL

Mary K said...

Bless you, Grandma Sue! Adore the way you popped him up as a dimensional -- so so cute! Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, I'm thinking I got at least one right!

Patti J said...

I have a guess for what the Christmas Carol is for all of the wonderful cards. I think the song may be "Have A Merry Little Christmas" - maybe not. :<) Wishing you a happy day!
