Punch art Rudolph … sparkly and bright …

Hi and welcome to my blog. It’s my final week as host designer at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. I’ve had a blast designing new challenges for you each week – I hope you’ve enjoyed them and played along with us. For my final challenge, I’ve chosen the technique of punch art.

Punch art is a great way of stretching your punches, using up card scraps, and making cute images for your cards. So, here’s my cute Rudolph, with his sparkly red nose …


Sponging the edges of the punched pieces adds shading and depth …


Making the eyes can be a bit tricky, but is made easier with Stampin’ Up dies. I used a similar technique for my punch art Easter bunny, and I have a free tutorial available.

Rudolph is the focal point, backed with pretty snowflake Christmas paper, and he’s sitting on a snowy hill of whisper white cardstock. Highlights were added with a white gel pen.


I hope you like my card for this week. Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team has been making for your inspiration. Do stop by and give them some lovin’.
