MojoMary Christmas

Yes I did promise no more Christmas cards for I while but I made this card a couple of weeks ago for Mojo's 100th and I didn't like the finished look so knowing this I used dotto repositional glue on the part that I didn't like knowing that I would make the appropriate changes when I found the time to brainstorm another idea.  

So the first attempt I stamped two trees, one in red and one in green.  I punched the holes out of the green tree (I had to trim around the tree to do this) and then layered it over the red tree to spotlight the snowflakes but I didn't like the tree cut just didn't look right.  Knowing this I applied the tree to the Chocolate chip CS with repositional tape.

The final try I removed that tree and decided to use an entirely new stamp set called Season of Joy and focus on the beautiful poinsettia.  I added some glitter to the center to give it a little bit of bling and I used white embossing powder for the Merry Christmas sentiment.  And the ribbon was an added touch.  The snowflakes on the red paper are clear embossed.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peak.  Have a fabulous Friday everyone :)

  1. Your cards are so wonderfully Christmasy!! That sketch worked perfectly for them and it almost makes me look forward to the season (if it didn't mean nasty cold here in AB)

    The lightboxes are quite cheap to make (I bought my foamboards at Michaels when they were 2/$5 and lights were ~$14 each.

  2. Love the squares and the sentiment in white!! Tanny is correct, it was easy to make (even though I didn't do it!). it's just a matter of taping the foam core together...the lamps just clamp on the side. I bought 100 watt indoor light bulbs.

  3. Wow! You've been busy this week! These are both great Christmas cards! I love what you did with the sketch!
