On the fifteenth day of Christmas . . .

Welcome to Day Fifteen of's 3rd Annual 25 Days of Crafting Showcase!  Each and every day from December 1st through December 25th the 25+ Design Team members will be bringing you tons of holiday inspiration, daily freebies and weekly giveaways.

Our theme today is:  "Rudy & Friends" -- a salute to every one's favorite red-nosed reindeer and all his buddies.  (And wait until you see the adorable freebies that Melin has created for you at today!)  Here is what I created:

You're shocked, right!  It ISN'T a calendar page!!!   I decided to create a tall card for today's showcase challenge.  It is hard to see in this photo but the reindeer cut is edged in gold and his red nose is very glittery!  Here's the recipe:
  • I created the text background using Microsoft Publisher and eight different fonts.  It is printed on a heavy textured rag paper.
  • The reindeer is from the Cricut Christmas Solutions cartridge.  It is cut at 3 3/4" wide by 5 1/2" tall.  
  • I used an embossing pen and a gold embossing powder on the edges of the reindeer cut and his antlers.
  • Rudolph's red nose is Stickles.
  • This card measures 4" wide by 9" tall and will fit into a #9 business envelope.
Now I hope you'll head on over to and check out the adorable projects other Designer's have created.  And make sure to mark your calendars and check back in with us each and every day through Christmas for tons of inspiration, freebies and weekly giveaways!
