Christmas Joy

Hi friends!  Another weekend is over and it's time for a brand new Mojo Monday card sketch to jump start your week.  With as fast as the time has been flying, I think I needed to start working on my Christmas crafting like 2 months ago!  {grin}



As I was blog surfing last week, I was completely inspired by Lynn Mangan's use of the Snowflake Tidings Die Set and had to give it a go.  I had every intention of using them as snowflakes, but once I got them all glittered up, I thought they would look so pretty as a poinsettia with some cranberry pearl centers, so I went with it.  Pretty simple to make... cut from cream cardstock using the Snowflake Tidings dies, embossed with the Crackled Texture Fades, then sponged with a bit of Antique Linen distress ink before outlining with a glue pen and dipping in glitter.  Easy peasy, and so classy looking!  I added some Dreamy Leaves die cuts as greenery, using a pencil to sketch in the outline of the leaves.  The only stamps here are the Christmas and the Joy, both from the Merry Wishes set.  Otherwise, it's simply patterned paper, cardstock, a bit of embossing and some glitter.

Enabler's List:
Stamps: Merry Wishes (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Joyeux Noel (Glitz), cream
Ink: Schoolhouse (Mix'd Media by Colorbox), Antique Linen (Ranger Distress)
Accessories: Snowflake Tidings Die Set, Dreamy Leaves Die Set (A Cut Above by VERVE), Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Curvy Label punch (SU!), ribbon, Crackled and Snowflakes Texture Fades (Sizzix), clear embossing powder, fairydust glitter, distressing tool, glue pen, cranberry pearls (Pizzazz Aplenty)
