Peace on Earth

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Did y'all have a good weekend? We had a super fun time at the Verve Release Party on Friday night and have spent the weekend packing orders. If you haven't yet, you can check out all the new releases HERE. Oh, and there's a little spotlight on Guest Diva Betty Wright over on the Verve blog today, so be sure to check that out, too!

Since it's Monday, that also means it's time for another Mojo sketch {Mojo110}. I love to make square cards, so each month I try to squeeze in at least one square layout. This week was a super fun one, I think! Hope you like it! I wanted a rustic, old world feel to my card, so I started with some Wonderland papers by Cosmo Cricket. I embossed the peace on earth sentiment from Star of Wonder with Copper detail embossing powder, then cut out with Classic Circle Nestabilities. The red panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug Ice Crystal Combo embossing folder and the main background is embossed withe the Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder. Then I sanded the embossing, distressed the edges, sewed onto Chocolate mats and inked up the edges with some Vintage Photo Ranger Distress ink.

Next up I decided to substitute a snowflake for the small rectangle panel. During release week, I was inspired by several cards for our challenges where stampers had layered beautiful diecuts and I wanted to give it a go. I cut the Cuttlebug Ice Crystal Combo die in chocolate chip and vellum, then layered some Snowflakes Sizzlet diecuts cut with Wonderland Scraps and accented them with Frosted Lakes Stickles and a crystal snowflake in the center. I finished off with some brown snowflake ribbon I picked up at Michael's, some Jolee's swarovski crystals and a couple EK Success photo corner punches.
