Rudolph Days Guest Designer

My PTI SAF post is HERE.

Last year Maureen asked for volunteers to help her with the Rudolph Days challenges for 2016. She had a pretty big response & didn't want to turn anyone away. It worked out great as each of us is on a team who will Guest Design every other month for 3 months.  All the challenge details are on Maureen's RD Post.  
My card features several of my favorite things: poinsettias, felt & foil. The stamps & dies are by My Favorite Things. Recently I bought FlitterGlu to see if I could foil a stamped image.  It worked great with the Distressed Diamonds, which I also used on this card.  To give the felt more body, I attached it to cardstock before die cutting.  Hope you'll check out the work of my teammates & make a Christmas card for the challenge.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with DiesCropStopUniko & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  4. Gorgeous card and like the texture and colour in the felt flower. Great success with stamping with the glue and attaching the flakes. It is a stunning effect x (and on the blue diamond card recently posted).

  5. Lovely poinsettia card to spotlight as your Guest Designer duties at Rudy day. Good idea to back the felt with c/s, as the poinsettia looks so dimensional. Good to see the flitter glue is working well for your foiling, and this is just so pretty & bright. TFS &Hugs

  6. This is so lovely, Greta. I love the look of the felt and thank you for the tip to back it with some card. I would not have thought of that and it is a brilliant idea.
    Have not tried the foil yet...it looks fabulous on your card.

  20. This felt poinsettia is extremely pretty Greta and a great idea to back the felt before die cutting it too. The silver foil is beautiful on the diamonds stamped in the background, and a great sentiment too. x

  21. Oh my! Rudolph Day completely slipped my mind this month. Currently I'm working on a tree card that has pink leaves so it looks very Valentine-y. No wonder I can't figure out which way is up. I love your felt poinsettia and those foiled subtle diamonds!
