Ally Pally Reveal.

So what did I make with those snippets that I retrieved from the Ally Pally . Remember these bits?
I immediately  saw  little Antlers. Did you!  So I dug deep into my snippet pile and pulled out bits and pieces that I thought would all go together and came up with the following card. No sentiment as the design is fussy enough on its own and you can all see its a Christmas Card (to add to my ever expanding pile of 27 at the last count).

Papers used were all freebies from magazines at some point layered up.
White  card is the left overs from a card made using Spellbinders Majestic Elements.
When cut it leaves a ready made series of holes around the edge perfect for stitching with.
Red card is the left over after cutting an aperture out using Xcut Ornate frame.
White oval is cut using Xcut  standard die.
Rudolph the smallest oval further trimmed down to size.
Googly eyes and pearl (for nose) from stash.
Antlers are the off cuts from a Tonic pattern punch.

Hope you have a good week and enjoyed the bank holiday break.

Love Jules xx

Vicky Hayes said...

What a cutie your Rudolph is Mrs A! He doesn't really look as if he should be put in charge of a sleigh carrying all-important prezzies to the children of the world though but hey ho! Have been catching up on your blog and the coffee machine incident had me in stitches. Don't you just hate being first in the queue! Vicky x

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Sigh. If only pinching some reindeer antlers was the only mischief that happened at Ally Pally. What happens at Ally Pally, stays at Ally Pally. I love this card, the patchwork effect looks great and so does the red colour scheme xx
