Sweet November Preview - Rudy

Welcome to day two of Sweet November previews for All That Scraps. There are six in total of these sweet Christmas pixies so be sure to stop by every day to check them out.

Today's card features Rudy and I combined him with paper from the Basic Grey Jovial pad. The actual design of the card happened almost by accident. After cutting the large snowflake using the also new for this release C.C. Designs Snowflake Cutters from the white paper. I just happened to lay the paper aside onto a piece of red cardstock and thought how pretty the negative looked too. So the design was born from that. I inked lightly around the snowflake negative edges and dry embossed the whole piece with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I then added a piece of the red patterned paper behind the snowflake negative and superimposed the cut snowflake on top of it, only gluing down the center of it so the rest would naturally pop up. Some of you might remember this project from last month's preview which featured a small burlap tree. Well, I actually intended to use two of them on that card but then changed my mind so I used the left over here. I "decorated" it with some twine and black buttons to match the homespun look of the plaid paper.
