Holly Christmas and Peaceful Dove cards

Squeezing in a card at the end of the month..... 

(Can you believe we've already passed one month for 2022)

with Maureen, Sue and Jenny ... for the Rudolph Days Challenge

A card using some elements in my stash just waiting for me!!!
  • the gold embossed holly sprig from Chocolate Baroque: Christmas Flourish, only needed me to colour it up a bit... so I smooched it into some Distress Inks - shabby shutters, peeled paint and mown lawn
  • in the die cuts I found some holly leaves and berries from Card Making Magic - Yuletide Wishes
  • and the sentiment from Kaisercraft: Christmas Sentiments
  • just needed to put them all together with a matching green border

Again from my stash
  • This stamped and silver embossed Peace Dove from Stampendous which was already coloured.. I added some sparkle to the dove and leaves.
  • Mounted with foam sheet to a white frame and used some matching starry lilac patterned paper for the background

......and so Why didn't I do this earlier in the month, instead of being pushed for time??
Hope you are keeping safe and well, things are ramping up with Covid here in Australia and our deaths are sadly rising.   Enjoy your crafty time,   cheers Robyn

  5. Hi Robyn,
    Happy Rudolf Days.
    Your cards are wonderful and such very fabulous designs also.
    The background on the first looks super and I love the Heat embossed gold holly with the lovely green die cut on top.
    Beautiful paper on the second one and such a lovely stamped and heat embossed dove of peace.
    Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. DT

  6. Two more gorgeous Christmas cards, Robyn! I love this elegant flourish all embossed in gold! The background and die cuts make it even more special! The dove is so pretty and I love how you've layered it over the starry background!

  7. Beautiful cards Robyn - love the second one in particular, but both are amazing!
    Stay safe

  8. Beautiful! Love the fancy Holly - I think I have admired another one of your cards using the same Holly stamp,
