Merry Monday #256 Favorite Holiday Movie

Merry Monday everyone - time to go to the movies with Nina this week for Challenge 256. Woo Hoo!!


As a young child I always watched Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer on television every Christmas season - it remains a favorite to this day. I remember hiding my face when the nasty Abominable Snow Monster came on screen - yikes! Then he turned into a sweetie at the end and Rudolph with his red nose saved the day by leading Santa's sleigh. A classic!! I found a darling & ridiculously cheap Rudolph stamp set at Michael's after Christmas last year - perfect for this challenge! Here's my movie inspired card:

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon (blue pattern)
Basic Grey Juniper Berry (black pattern)
Stamps - Inkadinkado Rudolph, Impression Obsession Wooden Plank
Silhouette Design ID 112156 Santa's Workshop A7 card 
Dies - Lawn Fawn Hillside Borders & Impression Obsession Snowflakes Cutout
Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Hickory Smoke, Lucky Clover, Pine Needles, & Black Soot
Other - Stickles, Copic Markers, foam tape, Sizzix plaid embossing folder

The set has 5 of the movie's characters - Rudolph, Sam the Snowman, Hermey the elf who wants to be a dentist, the Abominable Snow Monster, & prospector Yukon Cornelius, plus a snow covered tree and 3 snowflakes. I decided to feature just three of the characters - of course, one of them had to be Rudolph! I stamped all three, colored with Copics & fussy cut. I stamped the tree image three times using two shades of green ink and fussy cut. I thought Hermey would be cute looking out a workshop window at Rudolph & Sam so I went searching for a Silhouette Santa's Workshop design. Found a cute one that includes an A7 card but I just folded my own card stock to A7 size. I selected some of design's pieces and cut them in white, coloring them as necessary with Copics. I embossed the walls and roof for some texture and stamped the shutters with a wood plank background. I added Icy Stickles to the icicle layer of the Silhouette design. The design came with a heart for above the window but I chose a snowflake as the finishing touch. Oops - forgot I was going to hand write DENTISTRY on Hermey's book - just like in the movie. Oh well, I'll add it later.

Thanks for stopping and be sure to check out all the fabulous cards of my Merry Monday team mates! I'm having a blast on my Guest Designer tenure!!
