Advent Calender of Cards Day 17

A little rudolph card I made using the Topnote Die. This card is going to Charlotte's pre-school teachers as well as our playgroup leader (who has no small children of her own she just keeps running it out of the kindness of her heart) I was inspired by Sam Post's Card as well as Amy Manhart's Topnote box and I kind of just took the elements I loved from each to make the card I wanted. Bigshot dies will easily cut through 2 layers of cardstock, the only thing was that the perferations around the edge of the topnote only cut through the first layer fully so I just made sure that the side i put face down into the die was the side i wanted for the front of my card.
I have included a list of punches used and I think it's fairly self explanatory but if anyone wants specific info let me know as I'm more than happy to share how I made this card with you.
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Dazzling Diamond Glitter, White Gel Pen
Punches: Wide & Large Oval Punches, 1 3/4", 1" & 3/4" Circle Punches, Corner Rounder Punch
Bigshot: Topnote Die, Divine Swirl Cuttlebug Folder

I'm fortunate enough to have family in the US who spoil me from time to time (non-demos obviously as we aren't allowed to sell o/s)

SU! Have announced that we will be getting the bigshot and accompanying dies in the autumn mini catalogue (starts 1 April) so hopefully the topenote is included so I can sell it to you then :-)
