Holiday Snowflakes

Hi friends!  It's Monday again already (doesn't it seem like the weekends just fly by?!) and that means it's time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  This week's sketch was designed by Debbie Carriere.  I have more than a little addiction to Christmas paper (two 12 x 24" drawers filled to the brim with it) and even though I told myself I wasn't going to buy any new Christmas paper this year, I still ended up buying several 6 x 6 pads that called my name.  {Sigh}  So for today's card I dug into my as yet untouched 25 Days of Christmas pad from Simple Stories.

I did a little tilting of the main panels of the sketch to accommodate the gingham bow, and also added little tails to each of the horizontal panels.  The snowflakes are stamped onto Snowflake Tidings die cuts, then I layered a black die cut, offset behind each snowflake and accented with shiny gold pearls and red rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.  The sentiment is stamped onto cream and then made into a sentiment flag to finish things off.

That's all from me this cold November Monday.  We're getting much closer to our house completion date and I'm starting to think about packing up the studio.  When we checked in on things this weekend, we had cabinet doors, appliances, tile, stained hardwood and plumbing and lighting fixtures!  Hooray!  Just three more weeks until our closing date... can't wait!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a fantastic week.

  2. Fabulous card, Julee! I, too have an addiction to Christmas paper, and also HAD to HAVE the Simple Stories paper this year. It seems like the cards just make themselves when I create with it! =)
    Your cards are always so amazing, I love your attention to detail.
    Hope your day is fantastic!

  3. WOW, I am speechless...this is gorgeous. Great Card....

    Fabulous take on the sketch and I absolutely adore that snowflake image (just used it on a card - dies to follow shortly I hope!) Love the colour combo and the black makes it pop. Have a great week :)

  9. oh, that gingham bow is just the yummiest!! You really know how to rock the wide ribbon :) Oh, you are so close to moving!! We are hoping to in the next 2 weeks, just need a few things finished before the city will give us our occupancy permit...spent Saturday cleaning all the cupboards...but I didn't mind...they were empty and it was fun to think about where things would the espresso machine and my favourite coffee mugs! I'm sure you and Mark are doing the same :) Hugs!

  10. This is so sketch, too. You always have the best sketches.
