Mojo Monday #218... A Christmas Card

It's been a while since I played along with the Mojo Monday sketch, so it felt good to play again.

If you look closely, you can see the bitty sparkles on the snowflakes...

And here's the Mojo Monday #218 sketch:

Can you tell I still had out my supplies from my last card???  lol

Love the colour combo of Twilight, Juniper and Sweet Leaf!  So pretty.

The Santa image is from a retired set called I Believe, and the sentiment is from Peace On Earth, also retired.


I had so much fun playing with this sketch that I decided to use another stamp image from the I Believe set and created another card...  this time I turned the sketch on its side.

I first stamped and embossed the images on Colonial White cardstock, then sponged Sky and Twilight inks onto the rectangular piece.

I added a touch of sparkle with Silver Glitz Glitter Glue and the dots are done with Ranger Opal Liquid Pearls.

Happy creating!  :)

Hi Vicki,

Nice to visit another BC'er - at least I think you are, but we are on opposite poles of our province as I'm in Osoyoos.

Love your cards, I work a lot with silhouettes too - and my Silhouette SD too. Never thought of it this way, cutting silhouettes on my Sil. :)

Glad I got to find your blog, I think I'll follow you too!

Happy Crafting,
