Mojo Tidings...

Hi there,

You'll be seeing quite a lot of Christmas cards for the next while as I'm having lots of fun playing with my new Autumn/Winter catty goodies! I was up til stupid o'clock this morning placing my order for the sneek peek items from the up-coming brand new catty as well as ordereing a bunch more things from the Autumn/Winter catty that I had to wait until the 1st of September to get... Am I the only one that is this sad??? I'm feelin' pretty tired now though lol!

Anyway, enough rambling and onto my card... I played along with this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

I went with the square design and used some new Festival of Prints paper as well as a new sentiment set coming in our catty in October..

The sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla with Cherry Cobbler and I added a bit of extra colour with a blender pen to the bauble. I punched this out with the extra large oval punch and sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edge. I layered this on a framelit label shape that I embossed with the oval designer frame folder. I cut two banners from the Festival of Prints pack and layered them on Cherry Cobbler, punching the ends with a square punch to get the 'v' shape. The background is Crumb Cake card stamped with the flourish from Elements of Style (coming in the new catty!!) and sponged around the edges. I added a piece of Cotton ribbon (from the Autumn/Winter catty) along with a Cherry Cobbler seam binding bow with an antique brad in the centre. A few pearls finished things off...

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love the gorgeous papers and the ornate frame! So fun to see peeks of new Christmas items! Thanks for playing along at Mojo Monday!

  2. I had a slap on the forehead moment when I saw the embossed oval frame cut out with framelit...fabulous idea and lovely result. The flourish stamed on the Crumb Cakepaper adds to the overall elegance of your card. Well done!,

  3. Gorgeous Christmas card - love the frame around the sentiment.
