Stitched Rudolph

A super quick post today; I've got some paper to cut for a private stamp-a-stack tomorrow evening and I feel like I'm running behind!

Here is the 2nd card we made at my regular stamp-a-stack last week.  How fun is this guy?  I love the fun bright Christmas colors on this one.  And who can resist a red glimmer paper nose on Rudolph?

  Some fun details to note on this card--

  …. the stitching on the Gumball Green strip is made with the chalk marker from the Holiday catalog and just free handed along the edges.  Doesn't it remind you of the wide stitched ribbon we had a long time ago?  I like the chalk marker because it seems a bit more reliable than the white gel pens…my gel pens always seem dried up or clogged whenever I go to use them!

  ….the Real Red panel (though hard to photograph) is embossed with the Chevron embossing folder…see how it mimics Rudolph's sweater??

  ….the glimmer paper nose…so cute I had to mention it twice!

  ….Rudolph is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with blender pens and ink pads.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
